We are nearing the end of our summer in America, and are ready for the life and routine of home. was going to talk about that, but then something happened today.
This summer, another foreign family in Changsha has been going through some of the same things we have. Dealing with the court systems, and getting paperwork pushed through. They were concerned that everything would not be done in time, but it was. She made a comment that made me think. She said, "This summer has taught me how little my faith is."
Then this morning, we sang the song "How Great Is Our God" and I was struck by how GREAT HE IS!
We have been in America 41 days, and we have:
1. A letter from the Oregon DHS (supposed to have taken 4-6 weeks)
2. A final and amended adoption decree (some states takes 6 months)
3. A US passport
4. A US birth certificate (4-6 weeks normally)
5. A Chinese tourist visa, good for 15 months with a trip out every 90 days (told that was impossible)
6. A Social Security Card
7. Authenticated Documents.
I don't mean to brag, but the point that I am making is that even when our faith is small, He is still a miracle working God. He does not operate based on the measure of our faith, but in His goodness and grace.
