Our double blessings
Joel & Katrina signed on with Christian Adoption Consultants in January. After a couple of months their home study was complete.
They got the call that they were matched in May!! This past July they brought their double blessings HOME!
Here is a little bit of their story......
It's Friday the 18th. Just a few hours away from knowing for sure whether or not these girls were to be ours. The papers were to be signed at the 72 hour mark, which would be around 3:30 pm. We began the day praying for all involved, that the Lords will be done, and that everyone would be at peace. The birth mom text Katrina and asked if she could spend some time alone with the girls. For the past several days we tried to bring the girls to the birth moms room so she would be able to spend some time with them. We dressed them all up and took them to her. She smiled, seeing them, and said,"wow they are going to be spoiled."
So we left them with her as we went to our room to pack some of our things, knowing we were leaving with or without the girls. In our room we finally got the call that we could get our girls. The papers had been signed!!! We went to the birth moms room with a mixture of joy and sheer compassion for the birth mom. As she gave Katrina a hug she said, "Please send lots of pictures. It will be healing for my soul." We were so amazed that God had now entrusted these two precious girls in our care.
In our room we thanked and praised God for the wonderful gift of these daughters. That evening, in our hotel room, Katrina text the birth mom to show her our love and to tell her the girls were doing well. She responded back, "I can't get over how precious they are but I will be forever thankful for you and Joel." How that comforted us both to know that she was content in her decision and not regretting it.
Here are a few photos of our darling daughters.
