A little insight into adoption...

I rejoice and exult in hope; I'm steadfast & patient in suffering & tribulation; constant in prayer. Romans 12:12

We received the above verse along with a check in the mail this past week. It was anonymous. Oh how I love "you" anonymous. It's through "you" that God works in my life. He speaks to me through each note, check, or question that one asks me. Thank you for being God in our life (and I hope you all know I don't mean that in a blasphemous way). When we needed it most, "you" followed His prompting and sent it along with the beautiful verse above that reminded me that God is still working in my life, and hopefully in yours.

We were presented with another situation yesterday.  I was visiting with someone today who asked me what exactly it means to get presented with a situation. Good question! :) Basically, it means that our social worker either calls or e-mails us and tells us the basics (info about birthmom, baby, state, price, etc.) then most of the time, we literally have hours to decide if we want to be presented or not. That is a BIG decision to make in hours. Seriously, how does one begin to make such a life changing decision like that in mere hours? The only way is through constant prayer. If we don't have peace, we don't present. As hard as it seems sometimes, we trust and pray that God will give us peace with the "right" situation. Please continue to pray for us as we are presented with these situations.


  1. You will be in my prayers. It is so wonderful that you are seeking out adoption as a means to grow your family. Whoever the child is that you bring home will be very lucky indeed.

  2. Thank you so much Lindsay for your prayers and your sweet words about our baby being lucky. I sure hope so! :)
