Congratulations, Bob and Angela!

September 21, 2014
Bob and Angela started with Christian Adoption Consultants in March and were eager to begin! Their home study was ready on June 2 and then they immediately got started applying with agencies.

They began putting their hearts on the line, presenting to potential situations and eagerly waiting for their “yes” to come. After dreaming for years about a baby, they were so ready for the difficult wait to be over.

And then, a little less than two months after they applied to agencies, they got the call that would change their lives forever. They were chosen and the baby was coming soon! About three weeks after that, the daughter that they had long dreamed of was finally in their arms. And she is truly their dream come true!

Congratulations, Chris and Hannah!

In July, Chris and Hannah came back to pursue their second adoption through CAC.  (You can read about their first adoption here.) Their beautiful daughter was born last week!

So one minute you’re sweeping the floors and the next you’re finding out you might have a baby.

Well, that was our Thursday night, anyway.

The agency called us about a baby girl that had been born the day before. I mean, normally with adoption, you have at least a few weeks to prepare. But she was already here!

At midnight we got the confirmation that her birth mom had picked us to be her family and we needed to be on a plane to Utah the next day. So that was the end of sleeping.

Do you know how much you can get done on a surge of adrenalin at midnight? I cleaned the bathroom while Chris contacted our friend to see if she could watch the kids. I packed clothes while Chris ran to Wal-Mart to get last minute essentials. I made TO DO lists while Chris booked a flight. I did laundry while Chris did the dishes.

And then we laid in bed, wide awake.

Because we were getting a baby in less than 24 hours. A BABY, people!

Since we were running on about 2 hours of sleep, the next day was crazy. I mean, with 3 kids staying at home, you don’t just pick up and leave. You write letters to the school, and try to have some food in the fridge and list out their schedule and how to make bottles. And you make sure all the school uniforms are clean. But no matter how much you plan, it turns out Enoch has no socks just as the weather turns cold.

Once we got through all that, flying wasn’t much better, because they decided to leave us sit on the Tarmac for an hour, LIKE THEY DIDN’T KNOW WE HAD A BABY TO MEET.

When we finally got to Utah (about 10:30 pm, Louisville time), we headed directly to the hospital. We walked into the nursery with our social worker. And there she was! Just laying in her little hospital crib, so tiny (6lbs, 12oz and 18in), waiting for us.

It was kind of surreal, because everyone was just talking all calm and normal and we were meeting our daughter.

We named her Phoebe Cheyanne Glory Davis. And she is our girl.

Congratulations, Adam and Audra!

God always is doing more behind the scenes than we know. His ways are often so mysterious but He is always at work. Adam and Audra’s adoption story is another example of His perfect plans unfolding in His perfect timing.

My husband “just happened” to be talking with another pastor in the area and “just happened” to mention Christian Adoption Consultants. That pastor “just happened” to be Adam and Audra’s pastor and he “just happened” to pass along my contact info to them. In October last year, Audra and I got together to talk about life and adoption and in December they started with Tracie, planning to one day adopt a baby boy.

What they hoped would be a relatively quick homestudy process ended up taking more time than planned…it didn’t make sense and it wasn’t easy. But God was working behind the scenes. On July 16 they heard about a situation and that same day their homestudy was ready! They hadn’t originally intended on applying to this specific agency, but they decided to go ahead and apply with them and present. It seemed perfect! But it was not the child God had for them. It didn’t make sense, but God was working behind the scenes.

For the next couple weeks, Adam and Audra spent time really seeking God. He spoke very directly to their hearts about being open to whatever He had for them. And then they heard about another situation from the same agency. A little girl was going to be born soon. God’s ways are often mysterious, but He is always at work. They presented. They were chosen.

Almost a month after they had applied with the agency they never intended to apply with in the first place, their daughter was born!

His perfect plans unfolded in His perfect timing. And now, Adam and Audra look at their two beautiful daughters and see what God was doing behind the scenes all that time!

Congratulations, Luke and Amy!

IMG_9848 Luke and Amy’s journey to their daughter has not been without difficulty. They made an international move in the middle of their adoption process that made things a bit slower and more challenging than usual.  But they were committed to adoption and did not give up. They held on to hope knowing that their child would be worth it.

Earlier this spring they were matched and then, three weeks before she was due, their beautiful daughter arrived!

IMG_9691Now, they confidently declare that she was absolutely worth it all!

IMG_9973Amy shared this about the deep love and appreciation they have for their daughter’s birthparents:

“I was able to spend 2 nights in the hospital with her birth mom–and it was one of the best and most difficult things I have ever done in my life.  Luke and I never thought we wanted an open adoption, but God was so clear in telling us to walk through this door.  I am so glad we did.  Our daughter’s birth parents are so sacrificial and love so extravagantly.  We are absolutely in awe of them and are excited to be a part of their lives for a long time. Adoption is bittersweet. And incredibly beautiful.

Luke and Amy even had the opportunity to go to church together with their daughter’s birthparents as well as her biological siblings! Love is powerfully on display in adoption…so beautiful, so miraculous, every single time.

Congratulations Rob and Jolene

Rob and Jolene began working with CAC in November. As the new year came, they were ready to apply to agencies and get the process of “waiting” underway. In May, they were matched with an expectant mom. Just minutes before I contacted them about the match, they had been having a heart-felt, some what emotional conversation, and were having doubts about whether adoption was really for them. Waiting is hard and emotional, and just in that moment of doubt, they received their YES.

This summer, Jolene was able to travel to meet this amazing, expectant mom and was even able to attend a doctors appointment with her.

Their daughter arrived into the world in late July!

Every story longs to be told.

Every journey longs be lived.

This family put their feet to the journey, and watched as God told an amazing story through their lives.

PART_1407615703159_IMG951707A little boy was born.

His mother made a very brave decision because she believed that though she was not ready to be a parent, that her son’s life was a treasure. 

 

She reached out for help.

 

This precious family said yes to a whirlwind and rushed to meet their son.PART_1407615886174_IMG958342Adoption is complicated.

It is bittersweet.

It’s never the same story. But every story is deep and full. 

When Eddie and Anna contacted us in May, they knew it was time for them to get ready and they had dreams of a summer baby. Every time a possible situation came up they prayed and asked the Lord to lead the journey. 

I called Anna on August 2nd, and said, “Anna there’s a little boy. He needs a family. He’s already born and I need to know if you can travel tomorrow.” 

Within hours, Eddie and Anna had booked flights and were making childcare arrangements for their children.

Every story. Every single time. A miracle.

Congratulations Matt and Liz

Liz and Matt

I’m so happy to congratulation Matt and Liz on the birth of their daughter!

LOOK AT THOSE SMILES!!!

Matt and Liz started with CAC in August of 2013. By the end of September their home study was completed, and in October they began the process of applying to agencies.

Several possible cases came up and they put their loving “yes” on the line a number of times.

In January, they were matched and have been eagerly waiting the birth of their daughter! They were able to build a relationship with their daughter’s birthmom and were even able to spend some time visiting her this spring.

They welcomed their daughter into the world last week and are celebrating the miracle of this precious life.

It is not often that we have families matched with a birthmom as early in her pregnancy as this one, but Matt and Liz felt a real connection and felt peace about this match.

They were blessed to build a relationship with their daughter’s birthmom and she was blessed to have their support during the majority of her pregnancy.

Today I celebrate the faithfulness of God with this beautiful family.

And there are two little munchkins at home eager to welcome home their baby sister!!
