so blessed

i am completely humbled by the people that God has placed in our lives.  so many people have been overwhelmingly supportive of our adoption.

i remember when we started church planting 2 and 1/2 years was a lonely time in my life.  i was in the middle (15 weeks in) of a problematic pregnancy with boy #4.  on day 2 of church planting we lost our precious all time low in my life.  God was raining down blessings on the church, but i felt like he had forgotten all about me personally.

and here 2 1/2 years later, God is redeeming the years that the locusts ate (Joel 2:25).  my life is full of amazing friendships, an awesome family, and God continues to show up in HUGE ways to bring our baby girl home.  i am blessed beyond measure.

this week we received a $1000 donation to our matching grant.  WOW!  and last night our life group surprised us with a $750 check for our adoption.  WOW!  i cried, surprising the girls who couldn't believe that i didn't cry while watching The Help!  See, I'm not completely heartless! :)  we are so humbled and so blessed.  did I mention that yet?  thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  i can't say that enough for each and every person who have given gifts (large and small), donated items for our garage sale, bought flowers, had trees trimmed...all for our precious baby girl.  we are just $2750 away from our total goal!!!  Yay God!


  1. Yeah, this has me rather choked up! So thankful for your journey, friend! He is so faithful!!!

  2. Yup, teary here in Cleveland, too. I love to see how God is paving the road to get your baby girl into your arms. Thanks so much for letting us be a part of your journey!!!

  3. Hi Meg,

    The Lord is so good and faithful. We also experienced is Providence during our adoption process. I am also on the yahoo Group for Honduras but for some reasons, my posts are never showing. Do you know how I can contact the moderator through e-mail. Thank you for your help, I really need this support.

    Also, I wanted to share this news: This morning I spoke with my representative and she told me the strike is over since Friday. We should expect to see movement soon. I hope it's true.

    Here is my blog:
    It's called like that since we first expected to adopt in the Philippines but the Lord had something else in mind. It's mostly in French but I did a few posts in English. You'll also see a few pictures of my son.

    We are still waiting for a date for trip no. 2

    May God bless you,

    Maude from Quebec, Canada

  4. Hello Meg!

    It's me again, I am still not able to write on the Honduras adoption group but I though I would let you know about the news I got today. I just talked to my "futur" son as I do every Monday with Skype and the foster mom told me Ihnfa is now back to work. This is great news. I looked for articles that stated this but couldn't find anything. Also, I asked a missionnary that works in Honduras I met recently and she will get back to me with more details.

    I wish you the best and some great news soon.
