(I won’t pretend you came to this post to read a bunch of words, so I kept it short, for me at least. 😉 Pertinent information is hidden within each paragraph, including the total raised through T-shirt sales! See how tricky I am? There will be a test at the end. Okay, no there won’t, but I still hope you’ll read all of it!)
To those who gave, shared and prayed over our first fundraiser: THANK YOU!!! We raised $221.15! Mere gratitude, however, doesn’t even begin to cover the emotion we feel for you. Although, we did not meet our goal, we are trusting the Lord to provide in other ways. This is just one more opportunity for God to use as He writes our adoption story about how He tackled every obstacle that stood between us and our child. Besides, the support we feel already in this process cannot in the least be measured in a dollar amount.
You, our friends, are a blessing.
Only in Heaven will the fullest version of this story be told. For every prayer uttered in our stead, you are being written into the very fabric of this tale. You are a part of the beauty that will surround the moment when our arms finally wrap around the treasure God has waiting for us. We don’t take that lightly.
Speaking of your part in our adoption story, if you a part of our village in anyway, through financial, prayer or social media support, we’d love for you to snap a quick photo of yourselves and send it our way! We want to be sure your involvement in spurring us on during this journey is known to our child some day. If you did purchase a shirt, we’d love for you to be wearing it in the picture! Our desire is for them to know that God moved the hearts of a village to bring them home; that coincidence held no place in this story. My prayer is that one day when the enemy tries to lean into his attack on our child, which if this past month has taught us anything it’s that he will, he/she will have tangible proof that God moved mountains to plant them here in our home and He’ll do it again for them, then. I’m so humbled to have you join with us. I know now, more than ever, we can’t do it without you.
We have more fundraisers coming! If you want to jump into this story, there’s still time.
