I’ll let you catch your breath for a minute……
There. Have you recovered?
Tommy and Emily started with CAC the spring of 2012. That fall they had to put their adoption plans on hold. They started back up again in January of 2013.
This past year their hearts were broken when two different hopeful situations did not go as planned. They stepped back and waited and prayed.
And God, who is good, even in the midst of sorrow and loss, gave a gift that blows my mind away.
They were matched just before Thanksgiving with a baby boy who was due in two weeks.
Then 5 days before he was born, they found out that things were NOT at all what they had expected.
No…..things were far BETTER than what they had expected.
He became, THEY.
They were hope in time for Thanksgiving with two miracles that they will celebrate for all of their days!

Seriously, this is my favorite time of year!
I love celebrating the birth of our Savior and in the midst of that joyful celebration, I get to celebrate some of the beautiful lives that He has created!
The Christmas cards start rolling in and my heart is full as I recount the many times over the past 6 years of my work with Christian Adoption Consultants that lives have been changed forever through the miracle of adoption.
Bryan and Tabitha contacted me in mid-August of this year ready to begin the adoption process.
By mid-October their home study was done and they were ready to begin applying to agencies!
And handful of situations came up in the next month or so and they waited eagerly for their child to arrive.
And he arrived!
I called Tabitha on December 2nd (just 3 months after they started with CAC, about 6 weeks after their home study was complete) and told her that a baby boy had been born a few days before and needed a family.
And their YES was met with a “come get your son!”
I’m so excited for this sweet couple and can only imagine that they’re about to celebrate the best Christmas of their lives!

Phil and Christina started with CAC in late April of this year, and by late June they were applying to agencies with their completed home study and family profile!
They were presented with a number of possible situations, and put their happy YES out there quite a few time, trusting God to weave His YES into the story of their lives.
I got a text the day after Thankgiving that they were being presented to a birth mother who had just given birth to a little boy.
And with very THANKFUL hearts, they got their YES.
They jumped on the soonest flight and he was in their arms the next day!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING PHIL AND CHRISTINA!!!

Exactly one year ago, Chris and Angela contacted me about adoption. They had previously adopted internationally but knew that this next adoption was to be a domestic adoption.
I was thrilled to have them along for the ride! A journey like none other.
By January of 2013 they were home study ready and their profile was finished and ready to ship off to the agencies that we work with.
In February, they were matched with a local agency in their area. A few months later when they were anxiously awaiting the birth of this child, the birth mom made the decision to parent.
Any adoptive family faced with that huge, unexpected blow, needs time to process and adjust.
They took a little time.
And then this little man came into the picture.
I got a call about a baby boy who was already born. His birth parents had made the decision to chose adoption instead of having this little one enter foster care.
For a few days my email boy was full of emails titled Safe Haven Baby.
He needed a family.
And he found one.
With a handsome big brother who will surely teach him the tricks of the trade.
And two beautiful big sisters who will grow up to call him their very own.
Trust me I know. I’m a big sister and I remember what it was like to have that little brother of my very own.
Two little mommas right here!
So love grows. And sometimes there are storms in the midst of growth.
Sometimes the rains are hard and the weather is fierce.
But Love Grows.
And it is Beautiful.
This precious boy has truly found his Haven.

Cory and Mariah contacted me on July 31st of this year. On September 23rd, they were ready to apply to agencies and started sending out their applications and profiles. On October 1st they were told about a situation and agreed to have their profile presented. Three long days laster, they received that emotional phone call letting them know that they had been chosen.
On November 11th a beautiful baby was born. They are blessed to have an amazing relationship with their son’s birth family. They have loved well and I am so grateful to have been part of their journey.
And not one of my beautiful families takes for granted the love and sacrifice of each birth family who says YES to life and makes the incredibly heart wrenching decision to chose adoption for their child. This photo speaks what a million words would never express. It was taken just moments after a beautiful woman placed her child in the arms of another and trusted her to be a mother FOREVER.
This is the moment C’s birth mom gave him back to us for the final time…This is the moment right after I told her bye. This is the moment right after discharge and I hugged as we both cried and thanked God for allowing us to learn about one another. This is the moment C was placed in my arms forever.- Mariah
This is Love. This is Mercy. This is Grace. This is Strength and Weakness all rolled into one. This is Bittersweet and Beautiful. This is adoption.

Troy and Lorene contacted me in March and started almost immediately. By May their home study was done and they mailed out their applications to agencies.
Five months later they were MATCHED!! Their beautiful little girl was born last week and they are celebrating NEW LIFE!!!
WAIT! Hold the presses! They already had children?
Why would they want to adopt?
Because every child deserves a family and their YES was the answer to one woman’s search for a family.
God is good! He builds families in a beautiful way!
And this little one will be well-loved!
