Have you heard our adoption testimony?
In August of 2014, Nick and I felt a leading to adopt again. Little did we know that this would push us in our faith even further than the first adoption had. It’s so interesting how we forget that God is NEVER interested in us not growing, not stretching, and not relying on Him more. There are so many reasons why He calls us to the impossible. I personally have a really bad habit of trusting and relying on myself. Since I lean this way, the most loving thing my Daddy God can do is ask me to take GIANT leaps of faith. For me, even stepping up to the edge to consider the depth and height of what He is asking, has to be nothing I can do on my own. My thoughts were, well we have adopted one child once, so we can do this again. One child. He had a better way to help me, once again, surrender all my self-dependence, by presenting us with TWO BABY girls that needed a family…our family…God’s family.
On August 6, 2014 we said yes to adopting Helena and Esther. Since then we have witnessed the sovereign hand of God in the BIG things (usually financial) and the tiny details that only we know to look for. He has carried us through this process for 21 months, confirming His Word every step of the way. The girls have passed court in Ghana, and have our last name. They are Mahlstadts. This brings our family to 9 strong: Nick and Typh, Jax-15, Carter-12, Ben-9, Faith-9, Lydia-7, Helena and Esther-1ish. We continue to grow in trust as we watch Him provide the peace, wisdom, grace, and financial provision we need to see the completion of what He started.
