Months earlier than expected, in a completely unlikely way, we found our girl. We can’t share any details about her yet, but we’re all madly in love with her, and can’t wait to see God move mountains to bring her home.
We accepted her referral and submitted our Letter of Intent last week. The next steps are to wait for our Letter of Approval from China, make a very large payment, and then wade through tons of red tape to prepare to travel. We don’t have an estimate for travel at this time.
The week that we got the referral to review and the next week while we were waiting for doctor phone calls, orphanage updates, and stressing about money and other details, our whole family was studying Exodus 2-4 at Bible Study Fellowship. Pretty intense timing, right? Just like He did with Moses, God patiently led us through the fear, hesitations, and excuses; and gently reminded us that He was with us and would not ask us to do something if He wasn’t going to help us do it. (**Note: None of the fear, hesitations, or excuses were about this precious little girl, who we wanted to bring home the minute we saw her beautiful face.)
We can’t wait to introduce her to you. She is truly fearfully and wonderfully made. We know that you’ll love her, too.
