One Year ago:Saving Celine

One Year ago today, my prayers had been answered unexpectedly in a what I call a God story! My friend Patti wrote this post which would be one of the best moments I ever had with advocating. 
Heres my thoughts from this day last year on my facebook:
Speechless,did not expect or see this coming!
I wrote this post on my blog.
Today I wrote this on my facebook:
One Year ago, today God answered my prayer in an amazing way by offering a matching grant & a Giveaway for my darling Celine when I least expected it. I had raised $104 & wanted to do a match on my own but was not having much luck. Turns out he had bigger plans for that money & that girl. Even though the plan turned out much different then planned I'm truly thankful for the person who offered the match & giveaway prize, & my pal, Patti who lead the giveaway on her blog. Tears as I think about what was suppose to be Saving Celine but turned into saving 3 other girls. I remember the "thousands" Jk lol of people tagging me to make sure I knew as they know how much I love her. I remember the moment my jaw was dropped open as I saw the blogpost about the Giveaway & the tears I shed. Celine, thinking of the miracles that happened this month makes me sad for you but I sure pray you will find a family one way or the other, which ever country.

As I reflect back, I hurt for the girl who felt like my daughter. I long for her to find a family where ever that may be. Precious Princess, I'm greatful that your gift is being used to help 3 girls, one of which whose family will be on their way soon.
Love you always & forever!

Thank you again Patti, for being awesome by running the Giveaway last year & being such a good support when I was advocating for Celine as well as Cora Lynne. You encouraged me on the days I needed to hear it. I want to thank the donor who made it possible, even though the plan turned out differently for this girl you made the difference for 3 other orphans without realizing it.
Happy but sad for this 1 year anniversary but I know God used it for his glory!
