Road Made Clear!

I will never cease to be amazed by God's faithfulness. I know in my heart of hearts that I have no reason to question or waver in my faith, but my flesh is weak. I was REALLY discouraged this past weekend. I was REALLY questioning whether or not we were on the right road with our adoption of Sophia. Several dear people, including my dear husband and wonderful sisters, encouraged me to hold on to the dream. But I wasn't so sure...until God used a special family to CLEARLY direct us to keep on the road to Sophia.

Remember that $2000 we needed to send our dossier to our agency and then on to Taiwan? We no longer need it! Praise God! I was handed an envelope at church on Sunday that contained a check to meet that need entirely. How do you thank someone for something like that? Not only did our financial need get met, but God used that gift to clearly tell us that we were on the right road...keep moving forward...Sophia awaits!

In the next few days I hope to get all the dossier documents in order. Several items need to be notarized, so we need to find time when Dave and I can take care of that together. Then, it's on to our agency in Kansas. After some authentications and translation...it's on to Taiwan! Thank you Lord for your amazing provision and for increasing my faith!

(P.S. Don't stop praying, though! The next amount we need to raise could be anywhere from $4,000-$10,000 for the orphanage fee. But God will provide!)

God is able...to do exceedingly abundantly ABOVE what we can ask or think!

Hi Terri,

I found your blog through the new Taiwan adoption yahoo group. I've read several of your posts and can totally relate. In fact, several of your posts and your situation seem so like ours, I feel like I wrote them! LOL Wild!

God is good and amazing and has many surprises up His sleeve. I will pray for more of those fun kinds of unexpected blessings to happen in your family's life as in ours!

(Come visit my blog, and you'll see what I mean about the similarities...) ;-)

Blessings!
