His Will

I was for sure that we weren't going to adopt any time soon, but in the last 24 hours things have changed. I don't have a ton of details right now, but there is a birth mother that hasn't delivered yet that's looking for a couple like us to adopt the baby. The main problem is that this adoption would be a private adoption through an attorney, and the fees will be a lot more than we were planning on paying. They are estimating $18,000, and we don't have anywhere near that much money. But we have been praying about this, and a lot of people are praying with us now. We want to do God's will, and if this is His will then I know he will make a way for us. Prayers and positive thoughts are greatly appreciated.

God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength
For each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way

Oh, Ashley. You must be feeling a whole slew of emotions right now! I'll have you and your DH and the little baby on my prayer list! This is exciting news. I can't even imagine all that is going through your head at this time. Keep us updated!

Much love and peace,

OMG Ashley that's awesome! God works in mysterious ways. Even if this isn't meant to be maybe he's trying to point you in this direction again anyways. You will be in my prayers!
