Today a couple whom we have never met is hosting a fundraiser to help us bring B. home. Their daughter and her family are dear friends of ours and they made it possible for this event to happen. It is humbling, faith-building, and just completely amazing. When we were in the midst of trying to figure out if we could possibly add B. to our family, our friends told us that if finances were keeping us from making a final decision, they would stand by our sides and do what they could to ease the burden from us.
There is so much I could say…but believe it or not, I am nearly speechless. I’ll let God’s Word speak our thanks for me:
If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
And your darkness shall be as the noonday.
The Lord will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
and strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose
waters do not fail. Is. 58:10-11
Thank you from the depths of our hearts, thank you for easing our burden, thank you for giving B. a life that she might not have had without your help. May God’s blessings abound in your life and may He return this kindness to you many times over.
