It's Been A Wild Ride..We Are Going to China!
After receiving TA yesterday, I was feeling so hopeless as we had a large financial gap standing between us and our Ellie Grace. Last night, we asked our church family for prayer and wisdom concerning when to go, how to go, and what to do since we had such a large gap between what we had and what we needed to complete Ellie Grace's adoption. Over the course of the evening, calls, donations, and support flooded in! We were pledged and given nearly $8,000 dollars in just a few hours. Friends, this is the miracle we were hoping for, and God delivered through our amazing congregation and friends. When all the pledges come in we will have about a $5,000 gap, but we have that in our savings and were prepared to use it for our daughter's adoption so we got this! Today, we purchased our flights, began booking travel, contacted my favorite foster care home in Beijing to beg to volunteer, and jumped up and down because our Ellie Grace is coming home! Anna Mei and I leave in just two weeks! April 10th our Ellie Grace will be born into our arms. TWO WEEKS!!! I am so thrilled to be getting this baby girl home! Thank you, thank you to each and every one of you! China here we come!!!!
