And here we are when we brought her home that same night. She was the most beautiful baby. She had hair that was unlike any color I had ever seen on a newborn.
Anyways, what does all that have to do with deep thinking? Well, I was thinking about the journey of adoption, and what a wonderful thing it is. I was thinking about how much I would love to do it again, but also thinking of the massive costs. When we adopted Evie, it was pricey, but doable. The costs have gone up dramatically since then. Why, I have no idea. So here I am, thinking of wild ways to make almost $20,000. When we started the adoption process 8 years ago, our church suggested we do a fundraiser. We did, and it actually helped us raise almost all the money. It is amazing how God provides! Now, we are in a new area and going to a new church, so that isn't really an option. So I'm just brainstorming. I'm thinking thoughts like: if I have just 20,000 friends who gave $1, I would have enough! Lol! Okay, that one is a little nuts. I know that if God wants us to take the adoption journey, He will provide. It just seems like a HUGE amount of money! So I'm off now to go do somemore deep thinking :).
