Here we are for Family Friday again!
Three months ago, Cory and Jamie brought home Zion and Isaiah into their forever family from the Democratic Republic of Congo. We Care for Orphans Adoption Fund (in partnership with Lifesong) were able to come alongside this family and offer an interest-free loan as well as fundraising support to help overcome some of their fananical costs.
Listen in as Cory and Jamie share what God taught them through this journey and the unepected ways He provided for them!
God used this adoption journey to open our eyes to His heart for the least of these – orphans – in this world. He placed in us a love and purpose – to care for, adopt, and give Life to orphans. We see Him building this Life within us daily, to then give His Life to our children – both our biological children and our precious sons through adoption.
God worked each detail out exactly. Right before our boys came home, we needed to buy car seats and much more. Our total cost was $500. We were going to take it out of our family’s grocery budget, which was not going to work so well, especially in December when we tend to spend more on food.
My husband and I hung up from a discussion about it, followed by a prayer. Seconds later, we received an unsolicited email from a friend who said God had put it on their hearts to set aside $500 for us at this point in the adoption (most other adoption bills had been paid at this point). It showed us how God provides EVERYTHING, down to the last detail of car seats and high chairs, cribs and clothes and diapers. He is completely faithful and a good Father.
