Our Dishwasher Broke...and more :)

So we are getting so close to being able to go and meet this precious expecting mom. We are waiting for a call any day saying she is in labor and then we will jump on a plane and head to Florida. We are super excited that we get to "meet" her for the first time this friday morning via skype. She has a doctor apointment just before that so hoping for some good updates on baby as well. It is such a strange feeling to be getting everything ready for a baby that is not even yours yet...
On to last night... The dishwasher started making a very loud noise when I started to run it. I am used to loud noises in our so I let it run. My wonderful, responsible husband though was not so inclined. He said to shut it off he was concerned about the engine blowing, a fire etc... I was concerned about having to wash all the dishes by hand... So he emailed a friend who fixes appliances. Then this morning I hadn't heard anything so I checked with a friend whose husband does repairs as well, he would call me back but she mentioned cleaning out the filter. We had done that a couple times, but it had been awhile, but it was a really loud noise. I also talked to a repair company who said it would be $69 to come out to look at it. Then parts and labor on top of that. In wanting to save money right now for the adoption we don't have a lot of extra, so I decided at nap time along with my trusty assistant John, to clean the filters.

Low and behold we found..along with some yucky yucky stuff a large drywall nail stuck in the filter. How in the world? Long story short we skillfully removed it and the dishwasher is now working fine. Yeah!- even in little insignificant things God is looking out for us.
We still would love for your help during this time. There are 3 basic ways:
1 Prayer- For this expecting mom and her baby. For the labor and delivery. For our travel and our kids with family back home. For our finances.
