God Working Again! A Story of How Prayer Works

Sarah's donation God Working

My daughter Sarah breast fed her son after he was born. Now this girl was like a milk machine. Never did I with 4 children ever produce an excess of milk. Of course back then we didn’t have the fancy “milking machines” they have now!!!! Sarah was able to freeze and save a lot of her milk and had planned on giving it to her sister’s baby because her sister was not able to nurse her baby. Her generous actions were futile though as little Emma seemed to be allergic to dairy and because Sarah drinks so much milk, little Emma just couldn’t tolerate it. This week Karen tried to reintroduce it just a little at a time and she got fussy again. So yesterday the decision was made to give the milk away. Sarah  found a group on Facebook called Human Milk for Human babies and posted that she had 1000 ounces of milk. She quickly had a response from a couple in Windsor, Ontario that wanted it. They had adopted a little girl from Northern Canada and had wanted to give her breast milk until she was two. They were down to the last few bottles and Mom was ready to accept that they would probably have to be done. But then she prayed and asked God for direction, and as you can see from the picture….we know the rest of the story. She saw Sarah’s post and immediately responded that they would take it and would drive to get it. One of my favorite moments and the most touching thing  I heard the Mom say, was how many people had helped to feed their daughter. I thought it was pretty cool that my daughter gets to be one of those women.

Now that was part 1 of how God was part of this story. Part 2 was when the woman shared a little bit about how they adopted their little girl. You see, the mother had planned on aborting this little girl. But the little girl’s mom had a prayerful grandmother. When her grandma found out what she was going to do, she got her granddaughter to agree to carry the baby as long as grandma could find someone to adopt the baby. It was a 1300 mile journey and I don’t know the details of everything they went through, but this mom said there were many mountains that were put in front of them and they all just crumbled before them and they were able to move through with the adoption. She firmly believes that God intended all along for them to parent this child. She doesn’t believe in coincidences, everything happened the way God wanted it to happen. I agree with her 100%.

I felt this was just a beautiful story and a great gift that my daughter was able to give. It actually gave me chills to witness this exchange. Have you ever had a God moment like this happen. We would love to hear your stories. Please share with us!!!!
