God's Timing and God's Provision

Bucky and I have wanted to adopt from China for sometime. It was one of the first countries that we considered before adopting Xan. However, China has some of the strictest requirements of any country that allows international adoption. We were never old enough (you have to atleast 30) and we never made enough money. That is until this year, 2011. This year I turn 30 and this year we finally make enough money to satisfy their income requirement. Isn't God's timing incredible?

When we first saw Becca's pictures, I will be honest, I was scared. Her special needs seemed overwhelming. In a matter of hours of seeing our sweet Becca's face, God provided the money to pay for her adoption expenses and her initial medical expenses. Then, after speaking to a plastic surgeon and medical doctor, her special needs are really not scary at all. God made it ever so clear to us that she is our daughter, He removed the fear of her special needs and He removed the fear of not being able to provide the means to repair her special needs. God's provision is extravagant!

Psalm 68:6, "God places the lonely in families..."
