God Wants Me to Shout it From the Rooftop!

I am just in awe how God is showing Himself over and over and over.

First, I got a surprise update yesterday to let us know that Alexsey is doing well!

Second, I found out last night that $6000.00 was donated to our family for Alexsey's adoption! Praise the Lord!

Third, our invitation to be fingerprinted for our I-600 came today! They barely got our homestudy on Monday. What took five weeks last time we adopted took less than a week this adoption!

God is moving mountains and the people He is using to work through are such an encouragement that I can't help but want to shout it from the rooftops! Thank You for confirming to us over and over that we were always supposed to go get Alexsey!

If you are reading for the first time, I encourage you to go back and read from the beginning because there has been some pretty amazing things that have happened on this journey so far. Not only have many people rallied around my daughter to help her raise money for her plane ticket to travel with us, but others have done fundraisers on their blog on our behalf, and fellow readers have rallied around other adoptive parents in time of need. So many prayers have been said that I feel they are paving our path to Ukraine. We have been blessed with pictures of Alexsey that we never expected, and we have met some pretty amazing people that have helped us with adoption paperwork.

I feel very blessed to be surrounded by such amazing people. Thank you. You are all partnering to help bring Alexsey home! I hope I am not the only one to shout this from my rooftop!

I have to shout out again how excited I am that Alexsey has found his forever family. I was drawn to him, not only because his "special" need was the same as our youngest child's, but because he shares my sister's birthday.

She has asked about him, and how thrilled I was to tell her yesterday that his family found him.

And, tomorrow I will share with her how much the LORD has done!!

Blessings again and again,
Robbie
