The entire purpose of this blog entry is to ask you all to please pray! We knew starting out on this journey to adopt that it would NOT be easy. We knew that there would be hard things to overcome and push through along the way. Well, we've come up to the first big thing.
We just found out today that our Home Study fee is going to be double what we thought it would be. Because our agency does not have a branch office in Colorado, our home study will be done by a local agency who works with ours. When your home study is done by Holt (our agency), it costs $2,500. We just found out today that our out of state home study will cost $5,000. While we were almost at the $2,500, we are no where close to the $5,000. We need your prayers!
I was reminded yesterday that the Lord has hand picked Ezra to be in our family. This is a journey that He has put on our hearts to go on, and He has said all along to trust Him, have faith, and keep moving forward. He will provide. And I know that is true!
We need to have all of this $5,000 this month at the start of our home study. Where the rest of the money is coming from, I really couldn't say. But I do know this. I have a God who cares about children without a home! I have a God who moves on behalf of His people! I have a God who HEARS!! Would you please bang on the doors of Heaven with us? Would you ask with us? And then together, we all can celebrate the answer!!
Thank you, thank you for your prayers, love and support! We will keep you updated on the miracles as they happen!
