I want to be as real as possible as I share our adoption journey, but I also am a pretty private gal so sharing some of the more personal aspects of this process will be a stretch for me (but I promise I'll do the best I can).
We believe that one of the ways God will make Himself most evident in our adoption will be by providing for us financially - by moving the mountain, so to speak, that stands between us and the child He has for us. One of the things that I love about the adoption blog world is reading about all the different ways that God has provided for families just like ours. It's encouraging, inspiring and reminds us again that this is God's story and it will be for God's glory!
The fact of the matter is that international adoption is a financially costly journey - we've known that from the start. One of the things that we're excited about is seeing how God will provide to bring one of His children home. We know He will. There isn't a doubt in our minds that God funds what He favors and He favors adoption!
So we are praying and skimping and saving and we're even getting a little bit creative! Pretty soon, we'll be unveiling our new Adoption T-Shirt! We want to give our family and friends a fun way to support our adoption and also get something pretty cool for yourselves in return. We're in the design/print stage right now, but we'll let you know as soon as they're ready. We hope you'll buy one for yourself and also pass along the opportunity to all your friends! We promise they'll be cool! (you know they'll have to be if Abbi's going to agree to wear it)
So...we'd love for you to pray with us - thanking God that His timing and provision are perfect and asking the Holy Spirit to give our family patience and wisdom as we wait on Him. And...we'd also like to ask you to save up for one of our Adoption T-Shirts and spread the word once they're available!
We can't wait to share with you how God moves this mountain - I'll try to do it as authentically and openly as possible. Like I said, this is God's story and we want it to be all for His glory!
