God really doesn't sleep!

God had a busy night last night, battling it out for Samantha! I can't believe how quickly things are coming together. When He has an idea, He follows it through!!

I had a phone call this morning alerting me to an additional $2,500 gift! Thank you (You know who you are)! I am so blessed.

Again, I just have to say THANK YOU.


  1. Grace. That is amazing. God is SO amazing. Rachel and I have been thinking and praying for you and Samantha. We wish all the best for you! Miss you friend!

  2. So glad that you are adopting Kami! I saw her on the older girls page (I'm a warrior for one of the other girls), and then I noticed that her photo was gone and was concerned that maybe she was unavailable due to some paperwork issues in her country. Samantha Love is a beautiful name!

  3. Hi Grace,
    I wanted to say hi because I am a fellow RR Mom in the adoption process and we live in Omaha NE area. :) I'm always SO excited when another NE family commits. Many blessings on your journey.


  4. Welcome to this crazy ride! We are halfway through adoption of a little boy from the same country as you are! Feel free to reach out and ask questions, vent, etc! jessica(dot)vaness(at)gmail(dot)com


  5. Amanda, I miss you girls, too. Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement!

    Sigrunc, "Kami's" photo unfortunately had to be removed because of a mix up with her file. BUT, praise the Lord she is still adoptable. I'll work on my dossier while her file is being finished up. Hopefully we'll have her sweet picture back very soon. Thank you so much for the important work you do as a warrior. I hope to be able to do that for a kiddo someday.

    Petersons and Jessica, thank you so much for reaching out. Your encouragement is invaluable. I can already tell that it is going to be vital that I stay connected to people who are experiencing the same "crazy ride" that I am. I look forward to following you both as you journey to bring your little ones home. God's blessings to you and your families.

  6. Wow, Grace! I just read all of your posts in order and i'm so moved. You totally get what this life is about! I am really challenged by your faith and Trust in our amazing God and your unselfish heart. Marshal and I too have been moved by God to adopt in the future. We will probably go through the state foster care system, but who knows what God has in store for us. I love to read adoption/rescue stories. Thank you for taking us on the journey with you. God bless you and Samantha.

  7. Sarah, thank you so much for your kind words. GOD is god. I'm certain this was all His idea, and He's the One carrying me through. I'm excited that you and Marshal are thinking about adoption! There are so many kids out there who need a family to love them. Any child would be lucky and blessed to have you. Thanks for journeying with me :) I'd love your prayers whenever you think of me. God's blessing to you!
