Yesterday was a day full of blessings. We have prayed all along that God would provide, He knows how much money we need for this trip and He knows when we need it. He will provide.
Yesterday we were blessed by the people from Bill's work who threw an adoption shower with a cake and an envelope of money. They have been such a blessing and encouragement to us throughout this whole process, which has been on going throughout most of the Time Bill has been working at the Library. They actually managed to throw a surprise party, which was complicated by the fact that Bill is very mobile at work. Twice he almost discovered that card that was being passed around, but they managed to avert that disaster too.
I was blessed by a visit from a friend who stopped by to drop off some money for the trip too. She started as my Mandarin professor and became my friend, I am so blessed by her friendship. She has prayed for us throughout and even sold bookmarks for us, she helped us to know it was God's will we were following, and I was glad she was able to make it out to my house finally.
We were also blessed by Acer's Orientation and Mobility teacher who stopped by to have one of her older students interact with Acer, and so send us off with a donation. She is one of Acer's favorite teachers and is just so enthusiastic and fun. We all went for a walk together around the block and then they went off to return the student to his home.
