UPDATE: We could be leaving in 5-6 weeks!!
So here we are...approx. 7 weeks away from travel and $7000 away from being able to travel...what are my thoughts? Am I worried, scared...do I wonder how the rest will come?? Remember my post HERE...the post I said I would go back to a remind myself of all the Lord has done...it's CRAZY to see how far we've come since that post just 2 months ago.

When I think through those questions I can't help but be instantly drawn to my Lord...drawn to the fact that He IS providing for this financial journey to our sweet son. The journey that began on Jan. 18, 2010...the first time we saw his precious face...we had zero...ziltch...nada...dollars to begin the process but we did have instant love, faith, confirmation, guidance, and peace from the Lord.

During these last 6.5 months God has provided in ways I could have never dreamed of...
He provided through your prayers for our family...
He provided through EACH of you tolerating all of our crazy raffles ;)
He provided through families who stumbled across our blog and felt moved to donate thousands of dollars...
He provided through our Solomon Beads...
He provided through our super cool shirt sales that took forever to come ;p
He provided OVER $19,000 in 6.5 months!!!

He did it...we didn't...He called us to Solomon and is fulfilling the promise He made to us...the promise that HE would provide IF WE TRUSTED.

So, what about the last $7000...HE WILL PROVIDE. We are honestly waiting with great excitement to see how He is going to do it...who He is going to use...How He is going to bring our baby boy home! Stay tuned and watch what our God is going to do!!! This truly is a miracle story...ALL glory to God!!

We are so thankful for each of you...for your prayers and unconditional support!!!
