 This beautiful family welcomed home their newest son November 18th of last year.  They had been working with us since July.  Sometimes we feel that we just don't know how God is going to give us our next child, but when He whispered in this family's ear through their daughter.....they knew. 

We started the adoption process in late Jan 2013... several miscarriages and a complicated delivery with our younger daughter, convinced us that it was time to move forward with the adoption process we had already been considering for awhile.  We felt like God was calling us to adopt and we found that as we answered the call, He smoothed our path every single step of the way.  We were blessed with the opportunity to work with true adoption professionals who guided us from the very beginning.  We also had the prayers of many friends and family members as we moved forward.  
Our home study was completed mid July and we started working with CAC, applying to different agencies, checking email constantly, and WAITING!  We did present but were not chosen... we did want to present but did not get our profile and application in on time...  we did wonder if we could do this financially...

We got "the call" on a Friday afternoon in October.  We had just finished loading up the car with our 4 year old and 2 year old daughters, getting ready to go out of town for the weekend.  As we were walking out the door, the phone rang.  'There is a beautiful, healthy little baby boy who was born Wednesday.  His mom signed adoption consents yesterday.  He is ready to be discharged from the hospital, would you like to come and pick him up?"  We both started crying.  Our prayers were answered in the most amazing way!  We were blessed with our beautiful son and God also provided us with a financial miracle- exactly what we needed for his adoption.
  We met our new son at the hospital at 4 pm, by 7 pm we were at home introducing him to his two thrilled big sisters.  He is 12 weeks old now and we couldn't imagine our family without him.  We had been praying that God would bring us the baby that he had in mind for our family.  It amazes me to know that from the moment he breathed life into this precious baby boy, He knew that he belonged with us.  God is so good!  We are so blessed!  God has answered in a way that was more wonderful than we could have ever imagined.
What a beautiful baby boy blessing!! 

Have you ever thought about adoption, but don't know how to begin?  Maybe you think it is too overwhelming?
