More on our Adoption

Adoption is our story these days… so here is another update in the process!

And… faith meets action!!! It’s one thing to say we believe God leading us in a direction and then it’s a different story when it means we have to actually start paying for things!!! Knowing full well the money may never come back to us! BUT GOD!!!

He is faithful to provide and to lead us in paths of righteousness!

We have chosen our adoption lawyer and she is an amazing woman who has done so much work for us already with only paying her the intro fee of $375. We have talked on the phone almost every day this week and she has sent out two letters for us and has answered SO many questions! I know it will be a joy and privilege to work with her!

BUT!!!! Now is the time we actually have to pay the retainer fee before we can go forward with anything else! Her fee is $6000 and we need to pay it on Monday. We have full confidence that God is going to provide all we need and more!

As this beautiful hymns so loudly proclaims!

He Leadeth Me – by, William Bradbury in 1862

He leadeth me, O blessed thought!
O words with heavenly comfort fraught!
What e’er I do, where e’er I be,
Still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.

He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
By His own hand He leadeth me;
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.

Sometimes mid scenes of deepest gloom,
Sometimes where Eden’s bowers bloom,
By waters still, o’er troubled sea,
Still ’tis His hand that leadeth me.

He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
By His own hand He leadeth me;
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.

Lord, I would place my hand in Thine,
Nor ever murmer nor repine;
Content, whatever lot I see,
Since ’tis my God that leadeth me.

He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
By His own hand He leadeth me;
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.

And when my task on earth is done,
When by Thy grace the victory’s won,
E’en death’s cold wave I will not flee,
Since God through Jordan leadeth me.

He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
By His own hand He leadeth me;
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.

We have been continually amazed at how doors continue to fly open and the path, although not easy, has been clear. We are in full faith to continue forward. With it brings much excitement and expectation and also the temptation to worry. We appreciate your prayers and are so grateful for the many of you who have continued to talk with us, pray for us and encourage us! Thank you and please continue!
