Today was a great mail day...

First there was an invitation to a bridal shower (my cousin's), a snazzy revamped High Street Highway, a flip-flop chain letter from Mandy, and good ads. (You know, ads that are for things other than just pizza and tires.) Then, as I was opening all of the bills and credit card offers, I happened upon IT. The letter that I have been anticipating for months. It was thin which usually means disappoiontment. I read the first line with great fear and trepidation: "On behalf of Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife Mary Beth, we are pleased (this is when I started to let myself get excited) to notify you that you have been approved for an adoption assistance grant in the amount of $3000." Any of you familiar with the adoption rigamaroo know that assistance is hard to come by if you are adopting a healthy baby as opposed to a special needs or older waiting child. It is even harder to get when you have 2 biological children and the physical capability to have more. We are thrilled for this help! We cannot wait to see how God will be providing the next $8,000!

It is so great to see how God works. He has supplied this, and I am sure that he will supply the rest.
