Deuteronomy 4:35

You have been shown these things that you might know the Lord is God besides him there is no other.

Sweet Anna Mei,
A half a world away you lay sleeping in crib number 265 and you have no idea how God is moving mountains so that we can be a family.  I was given a check for $6,000 today by a dear, wonderful family whom we have grown to love over the years.  Today, three months after starting fundraising, we have reached the $20,000 mark.  $20,000 raised toward your ransom in three months.  If my estimates for travel are correct, we are fully funded.  I can't help but weep sweet girl as I think about all that God has done already for you. He loves you so much and has used many faithful believers to bring you home.  Never will I be able to thank each and every one of these people enough who have sacrificed themselves so that you might have life.   They are each a very special part of your story and some day when you are old enough I will recount each and every miracle that has led us to you again and again.  I hope that with all my will embrace this God who loves you so much and has such a plan for you so that one day you will know Him as deeply as I do and we can share in this adventure of living for Him.  Baby girl, as weak and inadequate as we are -God is more than enough.  He is enough to provide a HUGE amount of money so that we might be a family.  He is more than enough to heal all that is broken in us and to restore us to Him.  Your life and His part in it is already bringing much glory to Him who made you.  I want you to know it!  I don't ever want you to forget.  His splendor is all over you and you are going to have such a story to share when you are ready.  I am blessed to be your mother and can't wait to have you here.
All my Love,
