A little update on where we are at. If you notice I have added a timeline on the right to track as we move through the process.
We have been EXTREMELY blessed and have raised and been gifted a huge chunk of the fees we needed to pay with our contract. We did not raise the whole amount before the May 12 deadline, and it ended up being more than initially anticipated, but we took a leap of faith and I am very much at peace with it. So we have a little bit of a loan to pay off soon and then more initial fees that will be coming.
I have updated the chip in to reflect what we need to complete the paperwork phase and then get on the wait list for our baby or babies. This is so exciting and a complete walk of faith here.
As I have mentioned before we are totally fund raising this adoption and we have never done that before. It is quite vulnerable and exciting at the same time. Undoubtedly the glory will be and is all for God and the plan he has for us and our family. Following his lead in this adoption is beyond words and I pray that I don't miss any of what he has in store!
We are cooking up more fundraiser ideas and etc. It all takes time, but we are running through it as quickly as we can.
We still have some beautiful necklaces to sell and I hope to have those sold soon, and ask if you know any one that may like one to let me know.
For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time - to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.
