God has faithfully provided food and other necessaries for us since we first began our adoption journey. From this we should believe that He is willing and able to provide all we need as we continue the journey.

However, God has an abundant track record of caring for our needs, and His past provision will comfort us in the days, months, and years ahead.
"Return to your rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you."
- Ps 116:7
