Words cannot express how deeply thankful we are for your generous grant. My husband and I cried tears of happiness after receiving your phone call with the great news. It has been a very difficult journey knowing that our second daughter’s living conditions are not very safe. We have been praying for her protection on a daily basis. She will be almost 8 years old when she knows the love of a family for the very fist time. We have learned to completely trust in God’s perfect timing. Even though the waiting is hard, we look forward to the day we walk into a room and finally get to hold her in our arms. There will be many happy tears shed that day when we walk out as a COMPLETE family.
Even though we knew after much prayer that this adoption was God’s will, we had to step out in complete faith that financially it would be possible. We closed our eyes and leaped trusting that God knew what he was doing. We knew that even with working overtime, selling items online, selling items from around the house and doing an online fundraiser that it would be very difficult to cover the full cost of the adoption. YOU were an answer to our prayers. You saw our story and through God’s blessing you came alongside us during this remarkable journey to support us. Thank you so much for that. Because of you, we will now be much closer to bringing her home. You saw our precious little girl and believed that her life mattered. We look forward to one day telling her about the village of people who helped bring her home. God is absolutely amazing! Thank you for everything that you do. Because of your wonderful foundation, there have been countless families who have become beautifully complete through the blessing of adoption. You have created a ripple effect. Each life changed has in turn changed many others. Adoption is such an honor and a joy to be part of. Our first daughter Kara Lee (adopted in 2016) is the light of our lives. We are constantly amazed by her compassion toward others. She is incredibly excited to meet her little sister and have many fun adventures together. We can’t wait to share many photos and videos of Maylei Grace once she’s officially home! 🙂
