I just love the translations when they come. I really do. Today I read the words " He can walk for himself!!" Sweet Wills is doing fantastic! Much like Molly's story of obedience, seems like once we stepped out once again and said YES, Yes Lord use us, we're whiling, he's done it again! Precious Wills could not walk late July and is now walking pretty well. He does have spinabifda like Molly but from the video I saw today he is moving about like she does now, much, much better then we adopted Molly. He tires easily but that's to be expected. I'm sure once we get him home his progression will be much like Molly's and he'll gain strength over time. Wills is in an amazing place. Really it is. It's so different from where Molly was. Every day he receives physical therapy and good nutrition. I'm blown away by the differences. We're so thankful that he is doing so well, God is indeed faithful!
Today I read an article a dear friend of mine sent me. The article talked about the hard, and how when we do the hard we have an opportunity to see God. The article mentioned a birth mom in Ethiopia who did the hardest thing we can imagine as mothers. She gave up her baby and prayed for a family for her. Can you imagine her heart breaking as she left her baby somewhere in hopes that God would answer her prayers? Imagine Wills' birth mom. Can you picture it? You've just given birth to a son and he clearly has spinabifda. You know you'll never be able to care for him so you do the only thing you know, you take him somewhere, and walk away. Can you? I can't.. Meanwhile all the way across the world just like for the baby from Ethiopia, God is knocking on the heart of our family. God is nudging and preparing us to say yes to Wills, just as they did to the baby girl. Yes the process is hard, yes it's long, yes it's costly in more ways then money, but hard? Hard is these precious mothers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. What a joy and an honor to say yes to these beloved ones. What a joy to experience hard as we fly them all over the country to Dr's and specialist. God is always there, and through the hard is when I've seen him most. Tonight I am thankful for the hard..
We expect our 800a approval any day and Lifeline has all they need to send our 3 documents to be authicated and then we'll be DTC. Our prayer is around the beginning of December. We def have some payments coming up and although there is work to be done to make that happen I have so much more peace this time that God is able. I know he's working behind the scenes continually to prepare grants and folks hearts to give. We have launched the sell of Goats milk soaps again. At $6.00 a bar for most soaps these make wonderful stocking stuffers, teacher gifts, neighbor gifts, mail lady gifts and MORE! Message me today to place your order. You'll love them, I promise! Also tomorrow evening our TSHIRT will go on sale! These as well would make wonderful Christmas gifts! If you've been around for a while you know we would say and still say, "God is able" a lot. God gave us that word when we said yes to Molly and also with Wills. Please get excited because the shirt has turned out really well! I hope you'll like it.
Wills is doing well, he can now walk for himself and is talking. They say he is strong and happy. I was able to see his little crib, where he plays and eats and see a picture of his precious nanny. Please be praying that he would stay healthy and that the heat would come soon for them. It's very cold there and they have no heat. Pretty common for C**** as Molly had never been in a heated or cooled room until we adopted her. Still though the heat will be very much welcomed for them.
Bless you all for joining us on this journey again. God is indeed more then able my friends..
