We are adopting.

Yes, It is true and I can hardly believe it myself! This amazing blessing has literally fallen from heaven and right into our laps, and we are feeling just about every emotion you can think of.  A few months ago, I got a phone call from my mother telling me about a mutual friend of ours whose young daughter was pregnant and unmarried. She told my mother that her daughter was giving up her her baby to an adoption agency, and asked if we would be interested.

My mother of course said yes, and calls me immediately and tells me to expect a phone call from the birth mother. That phone call happened last month in July and, it was actually a text.  After a few texts, and finally a phone conversation we pulled out of the expensive agency and got the ball rolling with an attorney who is a childhood friend of my husband.

The baby will arrive in November we were told by our attorney that after the baby is born she has 48 hours to change her mind we are praying for the best. I am leaving this in Gods hands, and if it's his will that baby girl will be ours.

In the meantime, I am busy with googling the latest in baby stuff, looking for a pretty name, and browsing though baby sites.  Let me tell you there is a lot of cute stuff out there!  I want to get everything and its hard not to, but I must wait to see what happens.

Please keep us in your prayers.

  1. that is wonderful! going directly through an attorney is the way to go. Adoption agency cost are really high (as you probably know). What a Blessing
