24 Hours = All the Difference in the World

I am so amazed and grateful tonight. Not long after last night's post, emails and calls started flooding in. Dozens of people rallied around us in our time of need.

I truly believe God sends others to aide and comfort us in our difficult times. He brings peace in trying times, but so often he uses friends, family, and even strangers to answer our prayers.

A man we don't even know {you know how it works - a friend of a friend of a friend} is a pilot for Delta. We have been told that he wants to give us one of his buddy passes so we can fly to New York and bring Adjoa home on the 5th! He only receives 6 every year, and he is giving one to us!

I love the kindness of God, and I love that so often it can be found in everyday people.

Thank you for sharing and we are so happy for you! Not the Christmas Miracle we had expected and prayed for, but miraculous to see God's hand and the Christlike love and good-will of others.
Merry Christmas!

How exciting! It's not Christmas, but it's still a holiday. I've always thought that January 6th doesn't get enough holiday love. It's Three King's Day/Feast of the Magi/Epiphany/Dia de los Tres Reyes (hey, I'm from Arizona)--the day to commemorate the arrival of the Wise Men. Your journey is at an end as you celebrate the arrival of your child. I think it works. :)

Merry Christmas, and congratulations!
