A few days ago I shared with you about the 15 year old boy, Davids, who was in desperate need of a family. I then shared that a family had committed to adopt him! I just wanted to add a couple of more totally awesome details to his story, for those of you who might be interested. He was so very heavy on my heart, and I have been standing in awe at how supernaturally things have fallen in to place for this precious young man.
First, when the desperate cry went out across the internet that Davids needed a family NOW, it took less than 48 hours for a family to step up and commit to adopting him. 48 HOURS. Now that is just amazing, folks. Beyond amazing. His story spread like wild fire through the adoption community and he had HUNDREDS of people crying out to the Lord on his behalf.
Secondly, after an amazing family committed to adopt him, it was only a matter of a few days before all the funds had been raised to more than cover Davids adoption. Mouth. hanging. open. crying. tears. of. joy. This boy has a future and a hope AND his ransom is paid in full! God, you are so good!!
Third, Davids now knows that there is a familiy coming for him!! Go here and check out this priceless picture of his reaction to the wonderful news.
Last but not least,(and by far the best of all), Davids is being adopted by a family that loves the Lord with their whole hearts. Davids is going to be taught about how much Jesus loves him and the sacrifice that he made from him because of that love. This is the best news yet! I CAN NOT WAIT to watch Davids thrive in his new family. If you, too, would like to check on Davids from time to time, then you can go to his family's blog here. Davids parents-to-be were already in the process of adopting another Lavian fellow, so Davids will have a brother from his native land traveling home to America with him. I am so excited for Davids AND his new family!
