dear anonymous donor.

you have blessed us.  deep down in our souls.  a blessing that we have been talking about for days and likely will continue to talk about for even longer.  it is far beyond what words could ever describe... but my tears showed the overwhelming nature of your gift to our family.

what you may not have known, was that this last week i reconciled a lot of fear.  fear over who God wants me to be.  fear about adopting again.  fear over not having enough to give.  enough to continue on.  fear of not being enough.  you were unaware of the changes that were taking place in my heart and soul.  i could not shake this feeling of doubt; doubt that maybe God was saying wait.

so i prayed.

i prayed that God would show me direction.  that he would remove barriers.  that he would give me opportunities to see truth, to rid my heart of fear.  i asked him to show up in a big way.  in a way that would allow my fear of having enough for our next step in our adoption process to be obliterated completely.

that is when you followed your heart.
your anonymous gift.
it wrecked us.
and it gave me hope.
it gave affirmation.

confirming that in this moment, we were doing the right thing.  moving in the right direction.  pursuing the right path for our family.  the simple words that were in your message were perfect words.

In love He predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of His will, to the praise of His glorious grace, with which He has blessed us in the Beloved.

this reminded me of truth and not the lies i continued to hear in my heart.  we know God is going to continue to wreck us with grace and mercy in our process and continue to show us his purpose for our adoption.  we cannot even fathom the amazing journey he is taking us on.  thank you for being apart of our journey.  thank you for blessing our family.  thank you for giving us affirmation through tangible blessings.  thank you.  we wish we could thank you in person... but you didn't leave your name, therefore we are left to try to thank you this way.  God used you mightily this weekend.  i just wanted you to know.

all of us.

of our adoption costs.
