We found our baby boy. He will be coming to us in August. In fact, John and I know the birth mom. I know her really well, and have known her since she was a baby. I have always felt a special connection with her, as I used to babysit her and her sisters. It's been amazing for me to witness the Lord's dealings the past few months, and how perfectly he has lined everything up for us, and for our beautiful birth mom. There have been too many "coincidences" to be labeled coincidences. I call them tender mercies. Without divulging too much, and to avoid sharing things that are too personal and too sacred, I will just say that this little boy is ours. He is part of our family, and always has been. I don't know why he needs to come a different way, but to me, it doesn't matter. I know that he's ours, and I know that preparations for him to come to our home and family have been made for a very long time now. I feel honored that we have been chosen to be the parents of this valiant spirit, and I'm glad that we have been deemed worthy instruments in bringing about this most beautiful and sacred work of the Lord.
This is just another testimony to me that when the Lord asks us to do something, He will provide a way for us to accomplish His work. Back in November, we recieved promptings that we needed to adopt a child. We had no idea how to even start the process. But as we did everything in our power to remain close to the Lord and worthy of His Spirit, we began to see miracles happen. Many times we had to exert our own faith and take a few steps into the darkness, but, little by little, our path was illuminated. The Lord always keeps His promises. Of this I am a witness.
But the Lord knoweth all things from the beginning; wherefore, he prepareth a way to accomplish all his works among the children of men: for behold, he hath all power unto the fulfilling of all his words. And thus it is. Amen.
