Ah ... Legalization

Today we got an email from our agency letting us know that we will now be required by Kyrgyzstan that the our documents in dossier will have to be legalized. We knew going in that this was something that could happen, but had not happened before (or yet) and suspected we wouldn't have to have it done.

So, what is legalization? The legalization process involves the Kyrgyzstan Embassy placing their seal on the document to authenticate that your document is legal. According to our agency, this wil cost an additional $2,000.


Some days I get a little depressed about all the money this adoption is costing. While no price can truly be put on the life of our daughter, the reality is that we have to come up with it to complete the adoption. I still continue, most of the time (honesty is key here -- this is called Contents of my Heart and leaving out the bad parts doesn't do this blog justice), to trust that God is going to provide this money one way or another. But, Satan does have his days when he whispers ever so quietly in my ears, "What if He doesn't?" It is those times, I have to go back and re-read the promises that God has given me throughout this -- promises from His word -- that what He calls us to do, He will equip us and provide for us.

Today was one of the days Satan was whispering loudly, but I refuse to give him hold and will continue to hold fast to the promises from God.

DON'T LISTEN!!! You're right, God called, you answered, and HE will provide. A good friend of mine told me the night before we left for our first trip to Kryg to watch for miracles...expect them. You just have to be watching. God is faithful.
