I think that it is really easy (as you can see from my last post) to get overwhelmed by the discouraging aspects of all of this. But we often forget that we have so many hands and feet behind us and in front of us, carrying us and catching us, as we go.
And for those of you who have been there to walk through all of this with us...we just wanted to say...
I wish there were bigger words to use and more extravagant ways of showing it...but seriously...we couldn't do this without you...every single last one of you. So, whether you have supported us with prayers, words, finances...whatever!
We have a long way to go and way more work to be done, but we feel encouraged, supported, and lifted up by all of you.
Today, I added up all of the financial support that we have received so far and was completely blown away by the amount of generosity and love that we have been shown! I have added a fundraising thermometer to the side of our blog so that you can follow along with us as we move forward and closer to building our family...
One that each of you will be a part of!
I pray that today you feel as blessed and loved as we do and that the Lord will show you His incredible faithfulness in ways that far outweigh anything you have ever known before.
