Weeks of waiting and praying turned into months and soon the action of surrendering adoption cases became a habit. I loved that. Birth moms, newborns, hurting families… all it became our call, our responsibility to give to God, our hearts to bleed for and soon we knew the reasons behind every ‘no’. That may not have been OUR child, but it was our call to pray for them.
Along with developing a passion for prayer, the wait also brought new friends who joined us in fundraising. We got a call from our friend, Kelly who picked us to financially support and offered to fundraise on our behalf! I rarely shared my overwhelming fear of the financial part of this journey so most didn’t know how big of a deal this was for my heart. God spoke intimately to me in that moment and reminded me that He is a God of details and HE will fund what He favors.
