It was a pretty normal Monday morning.
Then my phone's text message alarm chimed.
It was a birthmother we've been talking to for a couple months informing me that her and her baby's dad chose Mark and I to parent her baby.
I immediately began shaking and crying. Was this moment really happening??
We are going to be parents. There are barely words to describe how that feels. We feel immensely blessed that we were chosen by this amazing birthmother. We're thrilled to have them as a part of our future family. We're humbled at God's grace.
I'm sure there are a lot of questions because we JUST started our process. Most of you have read that it takes almost a year to get approved through our agency. Our case is totally different because we were an "identified" situation. Through and through it's been a total "God thing" which sounds like a cheesy thing to say but there is no way we could of orchestrated this!
Needless to say, it will be a whirlwind 3 months in our lives. We're expecting our SON (yes, it's a boy...WOOT) in early September. Stay tuned for more....
