Faith, Up Close and Personal


Pictures are coming, I promise.

But first I wanted to share what happened today. As you all know from the previous posts, the large subsidy that was placed with this little boy is no longer and option. You also know that WACAP was able to award him with a $2000 grant to help cover some of the expenses. Yesterday after Matt had a chance to read my posts from yesterday he and I were talking about how we were going to come up with the almost $6000 that was going to be due once our dossier was being prepared and also for agency fees. Our home study was just done on Wednesday, and depending on how long our background checks take, we may need to have that money ready within the next couple of months.

Stressed does not even begin to explain the emotions right now. I feel like I have a ton of bricks in the pit of my stomach. I had to run some errands last night and while I was gone, our case manager called and talked with Matt. She wanted to let us know she was able to go to bat for us and get the grant raised from $2000 to (are you ready for this?) $6100! Of course Matt called me right away to let me know news. I could NOT believe it.

This morning I called our case manager to make sure that Matt heard her right and in fact he did. I asked what exactly that meant and she said that basically the next $6100 that would be due is covered by this grant. To say that our prayers were answered is a major understatement. Coincidence, or FAITH? I think we all knew had His hands in this. This is just another instance that validates to Matt and I that we are in fact on the right path.

What an incredible story! I just happened upon it while clicking from NDFC to another couple sites, which brought me to yours ... when you began talking about your new son's medical condition, a story from what I had read a month ago when I first came across NDFC came to mind even before you mentioned that was where he was at! When you brought it all together I got tingles.
God is SO amazing and He is so mighty to save. I will be praying for you all and for your journey in faith. That is so encouraging and wonderful!
Bless you all! --Valerie
