Money Miracles

If you've followed our adoption journey very long you know that it wasn't something we planned for financially. In fact, our "seed money" for this adoption consisted of $974 in our savings account when we started in October.

Our plan was to live more of a simple life. Instead of spending Rhonda's wages from her job as an "as-needed" Registered Nurse, we'd automatically deposit them into our adoption savings account. Even so, we had prepared for the reality that we might eventually need to take out a loan.

Yesterday some friends of ours handed us a check for $500. Completely unexpected! Perfect timing! Today there's a ton of money due with the paperwork mentioned in yesterday's post.

I think I mentioned this in an earlier post but it bears repeating. A month or so ago Rhonda was given short-notice pay (something that almost never happens) 3 times in 5 days, giving us just enough money to make our next payment!

Something amazing has happened! We've paid $9000+ to date toward the adoption without having to borrow a cent! Wow!
