Sharing praises!!!!

We have been saying all along, that God is never late, but He is also rarely early.  Each step of this adoption, and basically all of our adoptions, have been accomplished just about at the last minute.  Which makes me crazy at times, but God has really been teaching me through it!  He knows where my biggest hang ups are, and where I need to work on things.  So, He has been hard at work!

Well, yesterday, we got our taxes done for this year, and found out that we will get enough of a refund to cover our travel expenses!  Whoo-hoo!  Great news.  Still needed the final funds to pay off the agency fees, but we have some to send to them.  And we keep working.

Well, I got home from that appointment to the mail.  And in there was a letter from the IRS. Yikes, all I could think was that this was another notification that they were reviewing it more, that there were more questions, more delay, all the usual things we have gotten for the last year (literally it was two days shy of a year since we filed those taxes!).

But, nope.

Miracle of all miracles, it was notification that they were paying our entire refund that we were owed!  The WHOLE thing.  I could barely breathe!

Now, granted, they are saying that it will deposit in six to eight weeks, and that would be AFTER I get back, but I am sure that somehow we can work it out, so right now we are just praying that they will deposit it EARLY!!!!!

So, once that drops into our account, the rest of the adoption is totally PAID for!!!!  Totally.  Even with some spending money for over there for things for the kids!  We are literally numb about it.

All the worry, all the struggle, all the tears.  And it is done.  I hesitate to say that, being somewhat superstitious, but it is TRUE!!!!

Now I can concentrate of finishing our remodeling, packing, organizing and all those other things!  What a weight has been lifted.

I just wanted to share!  And the Reece's Rainbow fund (that you see on the left) will go directly to our post adoption fees!!!!  Thank you everyone!

I just wanted to share, am about to get back to schooling with the kids!  I just wanted to share good news.  God is good, God is amazing.  I just can barely comprehend it!  So long, and now this!  Wow.

Oh, I am in tears with joy for you! Your faith through this has been a example to me and, as you said, God always takes care of things. Now I'm praying for a very quick deposit and/or whatever needs to happen to cover the fees before the refund arrives. :^)
