“This is how God works: he puts his people in positions where they are desperate for his power, and then he shows his provision in ways that display his greatness.” -David Platt
This pretty much sums up our desire to adopt. I love being in a place where God's greatness can simply shine. You take this leap of faith, not knowing what to expect. Sometimes after the jump, you wonder, "what in the world have I done?" It is in those moments of uncertainty and utter desperation that God really shows up. I'm preparing myself for those types of moments...moments that I become smaller so that He becomes so much greater!

Our plans for adoption have been intercepted quite a few times before. This time it feels for real...and we've never been more unprepared. My heart starts to race as I think about the road ahead of us. The God who called us is faithful. He's been faithful each day of my 33 years. He'll be faithful to the end. I am like a child at Christmas with the anticipation of seeing (again) first hand just how big our God is. Seeing Him do His thing gives me a rush! I'm sure this will be no different...
