Nap time today at the Helms house became a lot more exciting than my normal, boring, yet productive, routine of laundry and straitening up around the house because it was interrupted by a phone call... from Lifesong! A wonderful phone call I might add!!! So I scratched the nap time to do list for today and instead did the happy dance and sat in amazement of God's hand in every detail of this journey (I mean, seriously... I'm loosing count of all the "God" moments I've experience in this process so far!!!).

Okay, so onto the good news... I mean GREAT NEWS!!!! The phone call from Lifesong was to inform us that we are APPROVED for a Matching Grant of $3000.00 received from Tapestry/Irving Bible Church!!!! Now you might be thinking... what the heck does that really mean?! It means that Tapestry Ministry  has partnered with Lifesong to fund a Matching Grant on our behalf and that ANY donation (tax deductible I might add) we receive between now and March 31st given to Lifesong in our name will be matched up to $3,000! So Lenora's incredibly generous gift, that I mentioned a couple posts below, of $1000 has now all the sudden become $2000!!!! How awesome is that?!  AHHHH!!!! I'm am just dumb founded by how God is providing in the most amazing ways ever!!!! Seriously, I'm floored!

What this means for Joshua and I is that we need to bust booty and do our best to fundraise like crazy until March 31st so that we can take full advantage of the $3000 they're offering to match! The wheels are turning in my head of all the creative ways we can go about doing this... this could potentially be an extra $6000 towards our adoption fund, HUGE blessing!!!

Okay, so I have no idea if you've ever considered donating towards our adoption, but if you have, I humbly say that now is the perfect time! Not only will it be tax deductible, but it'll be matched!!! For online donations you can click HERE and it'll also have information on mailing in donations as well. We'll be sending letters out in the mail here soon as well with more information, and if you'd like to be included in that mailing list, just let me know and I'll be sure to add you!

Nap time is now over, so mommy duty calls- but I just had to share the good news and praise God for His blessings once again in bringing Isa home!!!


  1. YAY!!! Praise God! That is so awesome!! Love how God is providing for ya'll to bring Isa home!!

  2. Love this Hilary! God is the ultimate provider and this is another reminder of His hand in this. So glad I GET to see him work in your lives up close!

  3. Praising God with you!! That is so awesome. I received a letter in the mail a few weeks ago receiving a grant too for our adoption...God ALWAYS PROVIDES!!! CONGRATS!!

  4. That is so exciting! Praise God!!

  5. Congratulations!! How wonderful!! We will be praying that the generosity flows to your little one's adoption...

    Much love,
    Future Mama

  6. WooHoo! Praise God!

  7. Awesome Hil..I knew you guys would get it!!! That is so super exciting, you're gonna be close to your overall goal SO soon...yay!!!!! Love ya

  8. AH-MAZING!!!! Love it!!! Congrats on this super fabulous blessing! When we were working so hard to bring Harrison home, I too, just celebrated in every little God detail. To me, it's just confirmation for the path the Lord has us on!! Satan can be so quick to place doubt and tempt us to waiver in your faith, but pieces of confirmation like these last much longer and yield that much more fruit in our faith journey!!

  9. We would love to be added to your mailing list.
