How about a shot at it?!?
The reality is that we could be boarding a plane in 18 days!  It's possible we won't know for sure for another week.  One thing we do know for sure is that we still need to fund raise like c.r.a.z.y.  So while we're at it, why not add something sweet to the mix?!?

Clayton shared a brief testimony in church this morning about saying 'yes' to the Lord.  When I first approached him about specifically adding Khloie to our family, he emphatically said 'no.'  Then the Lord spoke.  And being the faithful, god-fearing man he is, my husband said 'yes.'  He said we would take a leap of faith and trust that God would provide all we need to bring Khloie home.  He said yes, knowing full well that we aren't capable of doing this on our own.  He said yes, with a million unanswered questions about her health.  He said yes, knowing full well we exhausted our savings many journeys ago.  He said yes, knowing that this life is not our own!  AMEN!  He said yes, knowing full well this plan would fail unless God Almighty intervened.

And God has done just that!  To our utter amazement, He has provided every dollar as we've needed it, from our pre-adoption medical visits, to our home study and immigration fees, agency fees and more.  And then He blew us away with a speedy LOA and an even speedier TA!  Only He can do that.  Honestly, we had our calendar marked for LOA next month.  But God!  He brought LOA December 21, after waiting only 22 days!  So then we had our calendar marked for TA the end of this month.  But God!  He brought TA on February 8, after waiting only 5 days!

Now it's nearly time to book tickets.  We know for certain that He has not brought us this far only to leave us stranded.  No way!  Our God is faithful.  He is good.  He loves the family.  He loves the orphan.  And we are willing to work our fingers to the bone because we love HIM!  We are humbled that He would invite us to take this adoption journey with Him.  We can't wait to hold Khloie in our arms, and all glory to Him, that will happen very soon!

So, we have several things planned for the next 18 days or so, starting with this Canon T3i Rebel!  This is one of the first camera models we gave away.  It has similar features and ratings to the Nikon D5100 we just gave away.  Here's how you can get a shot:

*Runs from today, February 10 to next Sunday, February 17.
*You may use the Chip-In on the sidebar or email me for other options.
*Each $25 contribution gets 1 shot
*Each $50 contribution gets 3 shots
*Each blog or FB post gets 1 additional shot
   (Please let me know if you've done this)

~I will let you know what date we fly out once our consulate appointment is confirmed.  That will also affect the scheduling or rescheduling of our Both Hands project.~

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1
