An adoptive mom wrote this and I am in wholehearted agreement:
When a family seeks help in raising funds for an adoption, it's not like asking people to pitch in toward a new boat, or help pay for a vacation. What they are doing is committing to heal, with God's help, a child who has suffered the profound damage of being unwanted and unloved. They are obediently living out the command given in James 1:27 to care for the orphan, clothing the gospel of Christ's redemption in flesh and blood and now. When they ask for the body of Christ to come alongside them financially and prayerfully, they are giving us the opportunity to be a part of the miracles God works through obedience.
Thank you to each and every person who donated, who has prayed with and for us, and has been with us along this journey. You have given us courage, encouraged us, and have made it possible for us to bring Hannes home.
We fly in 8 days!!
