I also believe that God sometimes likes to show off just a little bit and He really did that for me. I was scared and discouraged and not sure how this is going to come together and happen. But that is not all that God did. Right after I got off the phone with the travel agency I recieved a call from my dad telling me that he had a check to give us to help with our adoption. My sweet Dad has a lawn care business and one of his customers will pay him for the whole year and usually pays him in the summer. This year that customer decided to pay him this month instead and my Dad is donating that money of $1400 to help Jaidyn, his granddaughter come home. I know it is taboo to talk about money and I know that I mention it more than most people, but to me, that is the hardest part to all of this and the scariest part. Today, God showed me that all I need to do is get out of the boat and keep my eyes focused on Him, not the waves crashing all around me, and He will be Faithful to provide and bring our daughter home!!!! God's heart is for the orphan and when we step out of the boat of safety and security, He will show up and show off!! Thank you God!!!

Hi! I am glad you are visiting my blog! Please sign my guestbook or leave me a comment. It will mean so much to me, Jordyn and Jailynn!
The rest of our family
In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!
