My previous post was about how we had gotten a house and how God had really moved to make all the ends meet and timing work out to move etc. What I chose not to mention in that post was that the day before we moved, we got a phone call about a birth mom that the agency wanted to show our profile. We said yes--knowing very little information. The next day (moving day) I received a phone call from Life Song for Orphans (our funding agency) and they were calling to say that they had re-reviewed our profile and they decided to give us a matching grant. The amount finished out our entire account. That means our adoption was ENTIRELY funded. The day after we got a phone call about a potential birth mom--hmmm. Why would God do that?

We met our wonderful, beautiful, birth mom five days later. It was a very tender hour. It is a time I will hold in my heart to share with Julia for all my days. Oh if we could convey the deep love we have for this young woman and the heartache we have for her. Too much for words. She confirmed in our meeting that she was 100% sure that we were the ones for her child--gender yet unknown.
