Hope for the Holidays...

As many of you who have been following our story know, financially our adoption has been a struggle... Many wondered why in the middle of a recession, 2 years after being laid off and out of work we would want to adopt a child.  I've answered that question before.  Because God told us to.  God doesn't care about a recession.  Isaiah doesn't care that we were laid off in 2009 and part of 2010.  We serve a mighty God, creator of the universe.  Eric told me yesterday that God does things we don't understand, and that if we understood why things are the way they are then it probably wasn't a God thing.  This had me thinking.  I've been so stressed wondering how we will get the money we need to bring Isaiah home at Christmas time.  A time when everyone's pocketbooks are low because we place so much need on "stuff." But then it made sense.  Christmas was when Christ was born.  When hope was born.  What better time to lean solely on the One who created us than Christmas? What better time to give a home and Hope to an orphan than Christmas?  Isn't that classic God?  When the Israelites were enslaved, He led them to freedom.  When Abraham and Sara wondered if they would ever have a child, He delivered.  When Lazarus was dead, He brought him back to life.  After Christ was crucified, He raised Him from the dead.  And He will be the one who provides to bring Isaiah home, whether it be now or a month from now.   I will rejoice in our suffering because I know He will deliver...

With that said, please consider making a donation to help us bring Isaiah home.  What other time can you say your 5 or 10 or even 20 dollars made a world of difference to a child?  When we left Isaiah he was sick with pneumonia.  It was so difficult to leave him, especially sick.  We pray for him everyday.  If you cannot donate please share the page below and help us.  All donations made on this site are tax deductible.  May God bless you this year!  http://grouprev.com/homeforisaiah#
