my little (not so) baby boy!!!!!!!!

heres my handsome little man whom i love so very very much!!! Obed Jonathan Djanie-Lowe. hes 5 and sooooo beautiful. as soon as we get our decree in hand, ill be flying to ghana all by my lonesome to go to court to file our i-600 and to give obi thousands of smooches. i really really cant wait. i just so cant wait. how can you love someone sooooo much having only seen a picture? he's all mine! the whole process has been extremely faith building. we dont have the money at all for an adoption but God finishes what he starts and he has been faithful. 

2 sundays ago before church, aaron was writing out a check for our tithe for the month and i told him that i thought maybe we should start giving more. we cant afford it and we already tithe but i just felt that if we gave more, God would meet us and i dont know, my thinking was "if we're so stressed about the money, then lets just give Him more.". Aaron didnt like the idea and so i was about to start trying to manipulate him into seeing things my way, but God stopped me. i told him "nevermind, i dont know why i brought it up. i know you love the Lord and i know you have a desire to serve Him and i totally trust any decision you make for us." aaron said "no, its good you brought it up. maybe its something i need to think about.". he didnt say if he wrote the check out for more or not and i trusted him and didnt ask. we went to church and afterwards a friend came up to us and said she was praying for us during the service and handed me a check. i was embarrassed, so i didnt open it until i got in the car. it was for $200!!! i showed aaron and he gave me a weird look and said "thats how much i raised our tithe". isnt that awesome!!! and if thats not enough in two weeks we've gotten three more checks for a total of $600. its like Gods giving us the money in $200 increments. God is amazing and i love that he lets us see Him work. 

anywhoo ...... I LOVE OBED!!!
