All things come in God's time...

"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, 'This is the way; Walk in it." - Isiah 30:21

It is not always easy to follow God and His will in your life. When He first put adoption on our hearts, I didn't even know if I would have a job in a few years, because I had recently been put on the "run-off" team. This meant that once all that work was gone, I too would be - along with a number of others. We didn't have the funds needed, and didn't know where they would come from either. Guess who supplied!! We said OK, Lord, and right away, Bobby's motorcycle sold that he had been trying to sell for months. That gave us the money needed for our home study, and first agency fees. Then, all along the way, as additional monies were needed, miraculously, it was there!! We began in the traditional or non-special needs program, but God had something different for us. Even before our paperwork was mailed off to China, we had begun to look at the SN lists from different agencies. That search started in December of 2005, then in November, 2006, November 28 to be exact, God led us to the list where we found little Emma Grace. Immediately, we knew she was to be our daughter. She was referred to us on December 21, 2006 by the agency, however, many times, China did their best to say "NO"

Finally, on June 4, Emma's file arrived at our agency, and now she will be ours!!! Bobby says "God is bigger than China!" - AMEN!!
