Amazed at how God works

Thank you !!!!!!!!!!!! Thank YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has been amazing to watch God provide our needed funds this week. One of the most amazing things is to have others advocating for us. Friends (some of whom we have never met face to face) are sharing our needs with their friends and church members. Some of you have shared our need with your yahoo groups or even posted it on your own blogs. Thank you so much.

Thank you for praying and lifting up our burdens. We are so grateful to be blessed by so many different people and in such different ways. You have given what you can and we are so appreciative. Chuck's high school basketball coach (who he has reconnected with on fb) went to his church and shared our need and they are sending a check. Our church in California that we miss so terribly, is helping us out. We have gotten money from other families that are fundraising themselves for their own adoption. We have been blessed by families and friends near and far.

I was tucking Tissy in last night and noticed a verse she has on her closet door.

My God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory. Philippians 1:8

What wonderful truth. I am grateful that the girls can learn first hand that God is the one who supplies our needs.

Our new total of what God has provided.....


Praise God !!! May He get the glory !!!!!

Sweet Peas,

This morning I wish I could hug you. Just like I hug the girls when they come down the stairs each morning ready for breakfast. I can't wait until I can help you start your day with a hug from mommy.

Love, Mom


  1. Prayed for the new "sweet peas" this morning - trusting God for His protection, improved health, good night's rest and desire to see their new mommy and daddy. Praise God for His provision for you and these precious boys!

  2. Oh, Cris, this is SUCH a beautiful miracle!!
    Love, Gillian

  3. My morning prayer for you: that your sons are provided with nourishment, smiles and hugs from those that are caring for them, and shelter. That your girls are full of peace and happiness as they see their family changing. For your husband and you to walk in peace knowing that God is in control. Blessings for the money raised to date.
