As I sit here, I really don't know where to start! As you know, we began the adoption process with an agency in the spring. We completed all the necessary paperwork and we just scheduled to have our homestudy done next month. On Wednesday, we were contacted by a young woman who has found herself in an unplanned pregnancy, and she would like for us to be adoptive parents! We are thrilled and shocked and so in awe of God right now! This honestly doesn't even feel like real life! So, we are putting off our plans with the agency so that we can be there for our birthmom. I'm not really going to give much detail about who she is because I want to respect her privacy. This is her story, too! Just know that we are the only support she has in choosing adoption and pregnancy has her feeling pretty sick right now. We covet your prayers during this time. Here are some ways you can pray:
1. Pray for the health and safety of our birthmom. She is having a rough first trimester!
2. Pray for peace and strength for our birthmom. She has no support in choosing adoption which has her feeling lonely.
3. Pray for the baby!
4. Pray for our family during this time. Pray that we would love our birthmom well. Pray that we would trust God's will, and not be afraid.
We are so thankful for all of our family and friends who are praying with us! We love you all!
