Romans 8:8 tells us, "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose."
This is a verse that we are constantly realizing the true depths of as we have stepped out in faith on this journey of adoption. What we have come to discover is that when you follow God's calling, He will provide others there to encourage you along the way.
Our family is so grateful for His steadfast love and how that love has been shone through others. One such family is that of Kevin Sommers. We want to thank them not only for their contribution to our adoption fund, but also for their kind and touching letter they mailed with it.
As Luke wrote in Acts 24:3, "In every way and everywhere we accept this with all gratitude."
To have a spirit of gratitude means we do not take what we receive for granted.
We truly thank God for the Sommers family, for their generosity and hope that they know that the money they donated is helping to bring a child home.
