Dear Staff and Friends of Caroline’s Promise,
By God’s sovereign grace and love, a precious three-year old little girl was transformed from Xia YangXue, abandoned orphan to Abigail Ruth Pawlowski, redeemed daughter. She is accepted, loved, protected, adored, and valued for the beautiful child God created her to be.
God’s mercy and grace are a common thread in Abigail’s story. In His plan, God allowed many people to join in this journey showing Abigail how much He loves her and planned for her to be in our family. Caroline’s Promise is an important part of her story. At the end of December, we were praying for wisdom in how to finance the remaining $3000 of Abigail’s adoption expenses. We were expecting Travel Approval from China within weeks, and we were patiently pursuing God’s direction. On the afternoon of December 31, 2011 Rebecca called to tell us we were the recipients of a grant from Caroline’s Promise. In God’s great plan for Abigail’s journey home, the grant was for $3000! We praised the Lord for this perfect provision!
Thank you for your commitment to caring for orphans, for offering hope to precious children who have none, and for loudly proclaiming Jesus to those in need of love. Thank you for playing a vital role in our precious daughter’s homecoming. Our hearts overflow with gratitude!
Stan and Jennifer Pawlowski
