Well, we took a big leap of faith today! We mailed in our dossier to Jonathan's country. It should be there by the end of the week. I say it's a big leap of faith because we don't have all the money to go to Eastern Europe. We are blessed with the money that has come through Adeye's blog! But we still need another $13,000 and plane tickets. There is no plan B. It's just God's plan on this one. We do NOT have any back up money.
We have seen God's hand in all of this, but now when it is to the end, I get weary. I did not want to worry about the money, but it is weighing on me. I have some great friends who encourage me and pray for me and I am so thankful for them.
If we could have your prayers, we would be so grateful. Adoption is a battle and we still have aways to go. My heart aches for Jonathan and for him to be home as soon as possible. That's why we took a step of faith. We only have a limited amount of time to get him. He's been in the orphanage 16 years. It's time for him to come home.
Please help share his story. Not too many people are interested in the older children. Please share Adeye's post so people will have a heart, not just for Jonathan, but for all older orphans who want to come home.
