All right let's go to local Kentucky and talk to Cindy has Cindy what's up.
How are you -- and -- -- can help all of thank you so much for taking my call.
-- -- my husband and I have a question regarding how to pay for -- upcoming adoption I'll call.
We are adopting and my husband and I we've been -- for fifteen years and for at least.
The last ten years.
We have been following your -- -- we our debt free but our health.
And about a year and a half ago we decided that we're gonna move forward with -- adoption so we.
That the money aside and we were able to -- up about 20000 dollars.
Yeah as of January.
We decided to move forward with -- option.
In -- -- we got a sibling group from Africa.
-- there -- three girls and one boy.
And they needed a home and the mother she had to relinquished -- rights because of poverty situation and an outlet -- that's going on in Africa.
Well we had intentions of this adopting one but as we prayed about it and we heard that the mother gets really wanted to keep them together you know not that.
We just couldn't say no.
We really felt alert calling us to adopt all of them.
And -- like as of February we made the decision in Q did move forward with a -- all of them.
And Haley -- back to my question that we had saved.
This 20000 dollars to adopt one child but now we're faced with -- for which.
Has escalated the cost to the adoption.
And has also added other costs and that we weren't expecting.
We -- we -- going into this for the great plane and -- saving up to 20000 and ended you know we're just doing everything right.
But now I -- at that because we don't have the money that we need.
Again we're debt free except how.
Where what do you do what kind of -- do you get what would you recommend.
We I think that we all and it into that central lead.
-- after taking any children everything in the health has broken.
I broke my foot of writing a lot more starting -- -- gunfire that -- broke you name it and the money.
That we had an hour emergency fund.
Was quickly depleted the we had to -- -- get into part of our action fund and pay for these things that were breaking.
And so we don't have as much as we get we only have about 151000 now for the adoption.
And we need about forty to 50000 dollars more.
But for gonna have to get a bigger rain and because -- you have three kids -- -- could be seven.
Yeah like well yeah I think that's.
What do you do elect called you did you dump.
I don't get the lord called to do.
This Thomas says the blessings of the lord act have no sorrow added to them.
And there is not one time in scripture and they got use debt to provide his wishes.
And if you don't have the money.
And he hasn't provided it.
I'm going to challenge whether this is god or not.
It pretty it's written -- of -- pretty well that I disagree.
Mood outside of the money.
Yeah -- the money in the fact that there's sorrow at -- with this.
I think you fell in love was from children and you're confusing that with the holy spirit and your shutting people and I don't want -- -- and I want to -- mean.
Trying to be rude to you and you can disagree with me and -- still be friends okay.
-- -- yeah but.
I think that if it was god that you would have the money to do it.
And there's a lot of things in my life nothing is important is what you're talking about though.
But there's been a lot of things that were very important to me in my life that I really wanted to do it when I got around them to have -- -- and the money and the way I live my life is I use that as a guidance mechanism.
-- Well being -- and how we've -- we've never got more than we had.
We -- allowing this so uncharacteristic of you guys but it has to do it has to do what you wanting children.
And it has to do with you know just.
The love you have for kids and.
Well I hit the adoption and yeah I mean.
Good lord -- to adopt and take care of kids and.
I don't disagree with that happens is even -- buddy of mine.
Lots and lots of our friends our church -- kind of full of adopted kids -- It's kind of thing around me and so I don't disagree with any of that theologically -- -- currently in your situation.
-- but -- morning issue.
And you know I don't see anything -- financial harm coming new year -- lives as a result of this process but now -- -- money starts flowing your corrections and I'll shut up.
Right now there's all these signs all around you.
That that may be -- -- -- to base.
I can't tell you in good conscience that I would advise anyone that I love it matches -- -- kids and as much as heavily on adoptions are going to debt to do it.
And so on and I honestly if you wanted to -- -- that I don't even know how to tell you to do that only short -- on your house.
Well -- lead there is you know we've looked into taking 50000 against -- -- stock.
-- -- You and a lot of stuff that I'm.
Yeah I did -- that that's not right that's not for me you know barring money out of AM that's not what we've done.
-- The whole thing is just over the top -- -- it but it's such a sweet and important subject.
-- that -- -- there's no way anybody could come down comment and even even disagreeing with you is is.
Not something your friends or relatives are going to be there -- yeah.
-- -- -- they hear your enthusiasm and they don't want to break your heart I'm not breaking your heart I'm just I'm challenging your pre -- positions you'll have to decide what -- artists.
It may take you -- a decade to recover from that financially from what you're doing.
I'm a -- -- in -- my command us.
Financially speaking be doing it for all the right reasons and you know I was sweetheart.
I think there's a lot of scripture that indicates that that this is not gotten on the Kissinger also love of kids.
Sound you can think about it and I'm if I'm wrong I'm wrong I've been wrong before more.
