wow!

amazing! thank you LORD! we just opened the mail a little while ago and received the letter from the scottish rite foundation. we had applied to this foundation ( which is funded by the shriner hospital) for a scholarship for kinley. we wrote a letter and included a picture asking them to please join us in helping kinley learn to speak! it was yet another answer to prayer that we were even able to be considered this month due to that the registration deadline was before we had even met with childrens. but we wrote a letter and turned it in last thurs praying that this could be a way to help us! i got a phone call from the coordinator that day that said she opened our application that we had dropped off and kinley's picture fell out...she said "i just could not say no to that face" and she pushed us through to the board meeting that was the next day rather then having to wait till the next month's meeting! another answered prayer!
we have been in constant prayer since then...praying that kinley's story touched the board members hearts. i was not expecting to hear back so soon and the letter even had our address WRONG 19010 instead of 19101...and it was delivered no problems. thank you God :) mark and i said a quick prayer and we opened the letter...the tears started flowing....we got an amazing scholarship to aid with kinley's therapy. they are willing to cover 1 time week therapy through childrens and our part will only by $300 a month!! they are covering the additional $1100 a month for the next 2 years!! i could not stop crying tears of joy that ONCE AGAIN GOD IS PROVIDING!!! after talking to kinley's current speech therapist from school..we are sure she will need some additional speech therapy in order to learn to talk. most specialists recommend 3 times a week. we are sooo thankful to have 1 time a week covered at a much reduced cost for us. we are still praying that God opens doors for some other private therapy that kinley can do in addition. we have faith God too has a plan for this...
THANK YOU for your prayers! they are WORKING!

Wow, God is showing his hand in this every day for you. What a relief to be able to just give it to God and trust that HE is in control.

I just read a book called "The Brain that Changes Itself". Amazing read, and proof of what can happen with the appropriate therapies. Praying God provides an awesome transformation for Kinley!
