Since November 8, 2009 (the day we decided to adopt) we have been flooded with generosity, sacrificial generosity.  I haven written about many of the gifts we have received during this time.  People (strangers and family alike) haven given in amazing ways.  I can't even put into words how each gift has come at the perfect time, these gifts have helped confirm we were on the right path.  As we wait for our referral we have received more gifts.  My Aunt and Uncle gave very generously towards our travel expenses, my mom's friend asked her 3 daughters and husband to give us the money they would have spent on her to us (wow, very selfless) and Rusty's brother gave us a very generous gift as well.  Our video camera broke about 2 years ago so Rusty's brother and sister-in-law gave us money for a video camera to capture those first precious moments with our new children.  The gift was large enough that we were able to put the remainder in the "general" adoption fund.  This gift was given right at the time we were getting travel shots which cost WAY more than I ever knew!!!  So, God is faithful, His people are obedient and so many have cared for these two children (orphans, but not for much longer) and it is a beautiful story unfolding.  You can help orphans and never adopt one and we are grateful to those of you who had compassion and have helped us get closer to bringing these children home!  Waiting for the day we can hold them and love them and tell them of our amazing heavenly father!
