We may not be able to save every child, but we can respond one at a time. Do not be discouraged by numbers, but instead be encouraged that when we feed, visit, love and clothe an orphan- we did it for Christ. I tell you the truth- whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me. Matthew 25:40

We're Matched with a Birth Mother! Yay God

So our journey begins... I will admit that getting to this point has been very emotional and everything but boring. After we terminated with our International agency we decided to change everything over to domestic. We had to change our home study and go through all the necessary paper work and contract signing with our new agency before we could be approved. We were officially approved to adopt domestically on April 11, 2011 and we received and accepted our birth mother match TODAY! The birth mother has decided on a closed adoption so we will never talk directly to her and the way she wants it right now we wont even met her in the hospital. She is due Sept 13th and the biggest shocker to many that know me is we decided not to adopt a girl only so the gender will remain unknown until birth. We are beyond thrilled. God is good...all the time!!

Please follow our journey but more importantly keep our family and our birth mother in your prayers.
