(I began writing this days ago, and left the title yesterday because frankly you all God is so very close to me in this season, but recording it in a timely manner not so much as each day is filled to over flowing. The house is out of order. I never sit down unless I am on the floor playing with a child. Despite this, I feel as if I am on top of the world. This summer has been so, so good. The beach, the swimming pool, and filling my moments with all the little memories that make life worth living has been my main goal. God is good, and life is FULL.)
Yesterday, I was driving across town with my littles in toe. They were buckled in their seats with their swimsuits on as we were on our way to a dear friend's home to swim. This wasn't just any old night swim though. We were on our way to a fundraiser to help raise funds to bring home their son whom they hope to be matched with soon as they just finished up their dossier. My emotions were all over the place as I drove across town looking in my rear view mirror to catch a glimpse at my three beautiful, Chinese daughters. Fundraising memories flooded into my heart, and I just took a quiet moment to praise God with my thoughts as I drove. So many events, so many contributors, such little faith on my part, but what an incredible blessing each of my three adoption journeys was as I have these three amazing little ones in the back of my minivan because of the incredible people who shared what they had with us so that these girls could be called mine. The faces of those who gave flooded my mind's eye. I saw each card given, each donation, every moment that we worked, every need met was revisited during this short trip across town, and I just rejoiced for all that God has done. He has been more than faithful! What an incredible, faith building journey this has been. What an incredible support system we have, and what an immeasurable blessing has been bestowed on us! It is my prayer that I walk as one worthy of such a blessing as these beautiful girls, and that as we seek God's will for our family in the coming months I will be bold as one who has seen miracles and believes the Lord can do the impossible because I have seen time and time again! Thank you dear friends for sharing this journey with us! Mere words will never express how grateful we are to you for helping us along this road to our girls. They are priceless.
