New Blog Find

My friend Holly (who by the way I love her blog and her passion for God) told me to check out this blog. I was joking yesterday on Facebook about God needing to make it start raining money because their are some beautiful African babies needing a mommy and daddy and I would love to bring one of them home. Holly said the lady on this blog had just been handed a check for $20,000 for them for their adoption. That wasn't a misprint, someone handed them a check for $20,000.

So I went to check out this blog and I was BLOWN away by the little I have read. Since this family has been given $20,000 to bring a child home they have decided to raise $20,000 for someone else to bring a child home. They are not rich, they just believe that God wants them to return the favor to someone else but even more than that it will make one more child that will no longer be an orphan.

I love finding good blogs and I wouldn't want you to miss out on reading this incredible blog. I am going to have to find time to go back and read more of her posts. So go click here and read this amazing story. Also while your at it go check out my awesome friend Holly's blog and tell her "hi". Holly is an amazing, amazing woman of God and her husband is off fighting the war right now and she is a home school momma of 3 kids (and I'm sure more someday).

PS I forgot to mention that this family is also going to eat beans and rice everyday for the month of September to give their grocery money to their adoption fund for someone else.

Amy is the real deal. You can't get to know her and not love her.
I am thrilled to pieces that their adoption is paid for so quickly and even more so that her heart is to keep raising for someone else!
She's a gem!!
We're all in this together!

Okay, you guys are making me blush. Thank you for being so sweet- I just love serving a BIG God that's all. And thanks for posting our story. I pray the same thing happens to many, many more families. :0) Amy
