Look how God works!

Yesterday I sent an email to the owner of the adoption agency we want to use to tell her I was sending in the application and to check on payment options. She and I have kept in touch through emails and phone calls. She knew I was waiting on money.

Today I get an email from her, saying that she had been holding a spot for me because she knew I was planning to get started pretty soon, and that she was putting all new applicants on a waiting list.

Wow! Her agency is fairly new and evidently she has had a flood of families wanting to adopt since we first connected, so good for adoption, and good for her!

My point is, I can't imagine how hurt I would have been if, now that I can finally get started and after all I went through to find her agency, I had to be put on a waiting list. It would have been a huge blow. One that I certainly would have recovered from, but still.

For me, this is just more confirmation. She is a sweet lady, that I feel connected to, who didn't have to hold a spot for me. God is AWESOME, and He is making a way out of no way. I am not worrying about the homestudy fee because I know it is coming one way or another.

I can't wait to see what God will do next!!!!

The entire experience of adoption is one of growing in faith. It is amazing to see how God works in each step of the process; each step bringing you closer to the right child. I'm happy to find your blog at the beginning of the journey so that I can watch how it all unfolds. God bless your journey!
