Congratulations Slade and Elisabeth

April 14, 2014

Some days things seem so normal until suddenly they aren’t.

They shift and turn and you find yourself in the midst of something extraordinary.

On March 22nd at 6:28PM, I received a Facebook message from my friend Amanda.

She shared with me about a special baby boy that she was caring for and asked, “I could not help but think of you and wondered if you knew of a family that would be perfect for this special baby?”

In her own words:

“I told (birthmom) that we could not adopt, but that we would go get the baby and we would keep the baby until an adoptive family was found. Friday morning March 21 the social worker called me to ask if we were willing to take the baby. We agreed so she did an expedited home study, background checks and had custody given to my husband and myself by 2pm that day.

The DCS social workers were thankful the baby was not put into custody but could not imagine that there were families who would be interested. I think they believed we would had her baby indefinitely. After the 2pm meeting I drove to the hospital to meet this sweet baby. For seven months he had been there with nearly no visits.

My children begged me not to find a family too quickly! I was there 24 hours before I messaged you. All I could think was that this sweet baby had gone so long without a mommy and daddy and while we would love him and greatly enjoy him, there was a new mommy and daddy somewhere that did not need to miss another day without this baby!!!”

And so Amanda wrote to me and she welcomed this little one into her home.

I wrote back, “I promise to help! He is amazing!”

I started working on this case. Pulling information together and praying. I sent out some email inquiries to a few of my clients.

On March 23rd, 24 hours later I recieved this Facebook message out of the blue from my friend Elisabeth.

“I wanted to just put the bug in your ear that we updated our study for us several weeks ago, so we’re good to go…..we feel like littles with special needs are where God wants us for now. If you are seeking a family for a treasure that you think may be a good “fit” for us, we’d love to know more!”

WHAT?
Are you kidding me?

So they prayed. We all prayed.

And a few days later, I received this message from Elisabeth.

“Does sweet boy still need a family?!?!?!!!!! We would LOVE to have a chance to be that family!”

And so a family was born. Just like that.

Because one family said yes to love for moment, another family was given the chance to love for a lifetime.

And I am sure that two families have become friends forever through the loving on one precious gift.

I invite you to witness a miracle.

Mother meets son.

Congratulations Ryan and Abi

March 18, 2014

My beautiful friend Abi is a photographer and I couldn’t share her family’s story until she was “ready” with photos that would tell the tale the way she would want it to be told. Abi found an amazing photographer Shannon Griffin who was in the same city where their baby was to be born. She asked Shannon to come and document this important day.

And then there were three. Three boys who will share life together. Adventures beyond measure.

Home Sweet Home. Safe. Warm. Loved.

In June of 2012, Abi first wrote to me about adoption. Later that fall, they decided to get the ball rolling. By early in 2013 they were ready with a completed home study and profile. Just a couple of months later, they were matched.  They were expecting a baby by birth and through adoption very close together. They were thrilled at the idea of “twins”. As happens from time to time, the birthmom decided to parent her child.

Trusting the Lord and His path for their lives, they waited for the next yes. It came.

And so did he.

This little man was the YES that the Lord had for them all along. He was the one.

The brother to their sons.

The one they would call their very own.

He does all things well. In His time….

Justin and Leah started with CAC in May of 2013, by late August they were ready to go, and in November they were matched!

Their handsome son was born this past week and they are just over the top thrilled to welcome him into their family!

I have loved this precious couple’s hearts through their journey and their willingness to say YES any time I called.

Their beautiful hearts as they met and loved on their son’s birthmom reflected Jesus with every beat!

I can hardly wait to see some very excited siblings meet their little brother when the family in reunited in the next few days!

Seriously? Look at those beaming parents!!

And this stunning beauty!!!

Matt and Lindsay started with CAC in March of 2013, and they met their daughter this week after several months of loving and praying for her as well as the beautiful woman who gave her life.

It has been nothing but pure joy to walk with this couple. They have loved so beautiful and carried their hearts with just joy and  grace.

There are parts of their journey that are too private and precious to share, but to say that they have loved with abandon would be an understatement.

And to say that the plans of GOD are GOOD would be an even greater understatement.

He wove this family together with beauty and His redemptive hand was over it all.

It brings me so much delight to see them walking out their dream of becoming parents! This little one is about to embark on the most beautiful adventure of love!

When I created Matt and Lindsay’s family profile, I couldn’t help but feature a series of pictures they had taken on their travels called, “Statue Love”.

Their working on a coffee table book of these fun photos!

I don’t think the book will be complete without this little one’s first “Statue Love” kiss picture included in its pages!

I have been blessed to get to know this precious couple over the past year. They started with CAC in December of 2012.

By February, they were home study ready and were ready to apply to agencies.

Adoption is often referred to as a “journey.” Some journeys seem to go without the up’s and down’s of a trek through valleys and mountains, rough terrain and smooth sailing, and some seem to have a mix of it all. Steven and Christie had their fair share of up’s and down’s, stop’s and start’s, yes’s and no’s.

And when this BIG YES came, they were REJOICING!!!

And they still are… thrilled to pieces with the family God has created!
