Just wanted to give an update on funds raised this month for the adoption. Between the Adoption Yard Sale Event, the two day neighborhood garage sale at the Cady's, and donations from friends, family, and church family, the total comes to $4,574.00! Praise the Lord!
We are so excited about what God is doing in our lives through His people. He has provided for the adoption every step of the way, and we know that He will continue to do so! This adoption has changed our lives. We have cut back in ways we didn't think possible, and have really realized a lot of things we can do without! Our Jeep engine blew a few weeks ago, and that typically would have been devastating to us because of the price tag attached ($2,000 to fix, or more to get a different car). We were able to almost laugh about it, knowing that this is part of Satans plan to mean evil. Well, what Satan intends for evil, God means for good. We have decided God wants us to just wait. Shane has been riding his bike to work every day, and has quite enjoyed it! It's good exercise and good for his health, he gets fresh air, and we are saving money on gas. We should be able to continue on this way into the New Year, which gives us time to pray and see what God has in store next. God is good ALL the time. Thank you a million times over for your prayers, your support, and for loving our sweet little African boy.
