Moving Mountains

Matthew 17:20
And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

Today a mountain moved. Impossible became possible. I am bowing before my Savior thanking Him for His faithfulness. 

We were told our next step in the process of our adoption would be delayed nearly a month because our agency's in country rep would be taking a long holiday for Chinese New Year. To say that "momma bear" came out would probably be putting it lightly. My son has defied the odds and survived longer than expected. My son has fought valiantly to live each day. My son has gone to  bed every night for four years not knowing if he would die right there in his bed in the orphanage. Every night for a full year now I have gone to bed begging God to spare his little life and to let him know what a hug feels like, to let him know that this "condition" does not make him unworthy. 

So when I heard an extra month the crazy adoption lady came forward in full force. I asked them if they would support me if I could find a way around this. If I could find someone else to deliver our papers to the embassy would they help me? They said yes. I went crazy for a full week emailing people in China, emailing friends that work for other agencies, calling our State Representative. 

You get the point.

Momma Bear, folks, Momma Bear.

I heard a thousand no's in that week. I hit so many brick walls! Everyone said it wasn't possible. I pounded the pavement every single morning and didn't quit. I told my husband if there was a way to do this I. would. find. it.

One little southern voice called me back and offered me hope. She said she wanted to help and she would look into it. She called me back late that night. Late, really late. But I didn't care one bit. She did it! She found a way to do the impossible!

So, today against all odds a mountain moves. Our paperwork is being shipped to someone who isn't getting paid, someone who is going out of her way to hep our son. It should arrive on Thursday and be dropped off. 

Then we wait a few days because our State Representative has already given the embassy a heads up to expedite! Woohoo.

Then we send all the paperwork back over for one more short stop before we are issued our TRAVEL APPROVAL!!!!

Then we get everything in order, make our tickets and get on a plane to finally, finally, finally go get our son. 

Keep praying, friends. I have never been so convinced of spiritual warfare. 
But I have learned a lesson. My God is mighty to save.
Mountains no longer intimidate me.
