FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not yet seen.

Walk of Faith pt. 2

Back in February when I first saw a picture of our daughter, not knowing what was to come, my heart flittered. I knew when I saw her that God had a special plan. Not being financially ready, my response was, next year. But that feeling never went away. I thought about Tammy (her name on the MAA WC list) every day and every night before I went to bed. I prayed about her every day, sometimes 2 or 3 times. So this went on for 7 months. I would ask God "but how?." She also has CP which scared the daylights out of me. And she's 10 years old. But after some research, I felt at total peace with her need. During that time, I found a very special blog where they put their adoption of 2 little girls in God's hands. They trusted that He would provide, and He did. I kept praying and knew that we had to do the same thing, "trust in God", it's His plan afterall. In September I wrote our agency that we wanted to be Tammy's family. So here we are fundraising to bring her home. This is our second fundraiser. It's a giveaway for a $100 Best Buy gift card. With each donation, your name is entered into the drawing which will be held December 11th. I hope you will help us on our journey to our daughter Faith (the name we will call her if she is o.k. with it).

  1. I'm sorry that I can't contribute myself right now-saving to bring someone home ourselves-but I will pray for you, and for Tammy. I know that adoptive parents don't like to be told that their orphaned child is lucky, but she is-not everyone would take a child with CP (my brother in-law, who has CP, was deserted by his birth mother along with his brother and they grew up with relatives but in different homes). So she is lucky, and you will be blessed!
