We have been so blessed by our adoption agency, Holt International, even having just started our adoption journey. A couple weeks back I sent an email to our China program contact and shared the craziness of our story being featured on AOL. She then put me in contact with one of the editors for Holt and they asked to set up a phone interview for a feature they were putting together regarding fundraising and international adoption...and the story went live today!!

So, if you are visiting our blog from the link on the article, WELCOME!
My prayer is that our story will help encourage those who feel a call to adopt but are held back by the finances required. In no way am I saying it is easy or that I don't have mini panic attacks when I stop and consider the numbers we are up against. But God is bigger and His bank account never runs out. Like the story of Elisha and the widow's oil in 2 Kings 4, His faithfulness and provision has no end. As we are faithful to trust and tip the jars, He is faithful to provide the oil needed. Even to excess!!
