Our Heart’s Desire

We wanted to share with everyone that our Son will be born in about 13 weeks!

One more time…OUR SON WILL BE BORN IN 13 WEEKS!!!!

We received the call on Wednesday afternoon from our Attorney that we were selected. We needed get a couple of things clarified about the situation before we could say “yes” we wanted to proceed. Thursday we were supposed to have our first conversation with the mom “A” but she was not feeling well. We made a plan with our attorney today to speak w/ A this evening.

‘A’ is a wonderful person. Her and her long time boyfriend know that they will not be able to care for the baby how they would like too, and want to bless a family who can not have children. They are 100% confident, in their decision as they decided very early on they wanted to place the baby for adoption.

We spoke tonight for 2+ hrs and it was like talking to an old friend! She is an open book, has a great head on her shoulders, sweet as pie, and is so relieved and excited we said yes! She saw our profile as soon as it went up on our Attorney’s website in July, and knew right away no other family would do, we had to be her son’s parents. She was so afraid that another family would pick us that she called the Attorney multiple times a week and sometimes a day. She lives in CA about 4.5 hrs away from us so it will be a long 4.5 hrs of driving when we get the call she is in labor..but at least we will be able to get there before she delivers! She wants us in the delivery room so that we can be there from the moment our Son takes his first breath.

The hus and I are stunned…shocked…excited…stunned…shocked….amazed…shocked!!!! Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would be matched this quickly. And never in our wildest dreams did we think that we would have 100% of our criteria for a birth mom fulfilled. She is healthy, no drug history, and really cares about taking care of herself and the baby.

God’s grace and mercy is amazing. We feel so loved and blessed by Him. His promises are true, and he always works for our good.

Thank you all for continuing to stand next to us and support us in this Journey!

  6. I remember well the joy and excitement of the call we had a little boy waiting for us. I remember the tears of hearing his cry the first time. There is no God like ours who fills our hearts with His love and gives us the desires of our hearts. So excited for you! Will be praying for your new little one to be happy and of course healthy.
