Icing on the cake

After the sale, friends and family all gathered to add up the total money made.  Such a special moment....we are so supported! We all made guesses and all underbid.  I had prayed that God would multiply the money made and the people that came and He did just that.  We are a few steps closer to bringing Lucy home now.  

I thought people would not care what the cause of our sale was.  I was wrong.  We had people donate money, let us keep the change, and most did not even try to get us to reduce our prices.  We had people come by to share their adoption stories and to wish us good luck.  We even met someone that has an Ethiopian friend that we can take language classes from.  God is so faithful, even when we doubt.  While I am confident in our decision, I love the times that God makes things so clear and reminds us that He has a plan.  

Oh yeah, the amount we made was the exact amount of our next payment to our agency.  Icing on the cake :)

Thanks to everyone that helped to make the sale a success.  We are so thankful!
