It's Time!

This morning we had our third phone conference with our birthmom. It was another wonderful conversation and she confirmed to us that she felt at peace about her decision, and we felt peace about ours.

Then, not a half hour ago, we got a call saying "J" was in labor at the hospital, ready to deliver. It looks as if we will be having a baby either on the 5th or the 6th of July. When the social worker asked if we wanted to get a call when the baby arrived, we said absolutely! So, we are staying up late tonight, making lists, cleaning the house, getting everything prepared!

Our biggest prayer right now is for "J" and the baby. Please pray for a safe and healthy delivery. Also, we are asking for prayers for travel. We still have no idea the logistics of travel at last minute. There is bound to be some stress, and I admit I'm nervous! Then I got a wonderful text from my sister saying, "I sought the Lord & He answered me, He delivered me from all my fears!".

So true and one I am leaning on tonight and in the coming days! Thanks for praying and I'll keep you all updated!


  1. praying, praying, praying!!! So excited for you guys :)

  2. Vanessa,

    Just saw your exciting news! I'm praying for you, that you would have peace in the midst of this happy storm :).

  3. Wow, how incredibly exciting!!! Congratulations! We just returned home after being gone for a week and you were on my heart. As I was praying for your family I decided to check your blog at the same time you updated it. God is soooo amazing. He will work out every little detail and you will have a beautiful testimony. We love you and will continue to hold you up in prayer.

  5. Thinking of you today and praying all goes well. I wish I was closer so I could help. Congrats and best wishes!! =)

  6. YAY!!! Can't wait to see pics of the new little one!!

  7. Just saw the news! Praying for you and Chris and the girls! Praying that God gives you all traveling mercies there and back. Praying for J and your baby -- that J would continue to have peace about her decision especially after she meets you. Praying when she places the baby in your arms she will be at peace knowing it is now your baby and she will be relieved and 100% ok with her decision.

    That the favor of God and man will be upon you. That nursing will go great and your bonding time will be ever so sweet.

    Praying for all of you, that God will have this whole trip and adoption in his awesome hands! Looking forward to meeting your new little one!
