Any time we step out in faith we're in unknown territory.
Even though adoption is not unknown for our family, funds are always at the top of the unknown list.
We just know it is our calling and God will take care of it.
It has been taken care of for every single adoption in SO many ways...
many of YOU being blessings to us in a mirage of ways.
When we moved to Hartwell, we knew we wanted a boat to share family time on the lake.
It has been a great source of joy and an investment we haven't regretted at all.
Over the last two adoptions, it was our last resort to sell the boat if we were short travel funds
and for some reason, we were able to keep it.
This adoption has been a huge faith climb since last December when felt called to adopt Grayson
(WP's foster brother).
God used us to find Grayson's real family and continued us on this journey for our child.
It became very clear that the boat would have to go this time so Scott put it on Craig's List months ago.
We had a lot of calls, at least 2 people came and test drove, but no one bought it.
Remember, we sent LOI on Friday not knowing what God would do?
Saturday Scott received an email from someone interested all the way from NC.
He was willing to drive down to get it if we could come down on the price just a little.
We knew we couldn't turn him down.
SO today he pulled into our drive with a friend (Both SO nice)
and went with Scott for a ride...
long story short~ he bought it and the boat is gone.
Want to know the sweet part of the story?
The LITTLE Things...
This man's dad is a professor teaching English in Guangzhou, China...
one of cities we have been three times and will travel through once more,
the city that always makes us wonder what else God has for our family,
the city where we always say goodbye to our precious babies' home country.
The Little Things are often God's confirmation that we are indeed in His will.
Friday we sent LOI, Saturday he sent the email.
Tuesday Scott was obedient to sell and God connected it all to China.
Is it just me, or is that just plain AWESOME?
Not gonna lie, it was sad to see it go but SO pales in comparison to the little one waiting for us.
At first it seemed a sacrifice but now it feels like a blessing.
God is good all the time.
Now if we could just sell this adorable house right in town.
(Scott is having a lot of work done on it right now!)
We hope to have PA (pre approval) this week and share our baby's sweet face
and then open our auction (updated) one more time to raise funds for orphanage fee~ $5800.
Blessings and love!
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine,
according to his power that is at work within us,
