Romans 8:28

"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose for them." Romans 8:28 Before we decided which agency we were going to use for our adoption, I had a client hire me for her April 10th due date. I was very excited to take on this couple in a different location and different family circumstances. I do always trust my clients are hand picked from the Lord and there is a reason they chose me. We found out that our agency requires you to go to two trainings that are offered twice a year. Fairly non-negotiable to be there. Of course, I panicked because I have never had to come back on a client and give her "conditions" other than what I told them from the beginning. My client was so gracious to understand our circumstances and know that if she went into labor while I was in Charlotte, I would immediately come home. Of course, I was a ball of stress last week knowing this possibility and wanting to fulfill my commitments to her and the adoption. It was a good praying week to say the least! This morning though, it is a good praising time that "God worked ALL things out." I am home from training, rested and ready to meet two sweet baby girls this week. I actually have two clients due today! What a blessed woman I am to have a "job" that includes being a part of the miracle of BIRTH!

Adding Anna Carson

I love how God's timing is perfect. I know that every client he puts in my path is there for a reason and if there is a bit of time off, there is a reason as well. I have been "off" for a month and a half and boy has He kept me busy! Last year we felt God moving in our hearts to adopt a little girl and it is coming to fruition. We started the paperwork in January and yesterday we were assigned our caseworker to come do our home study! This will mean sooner rather than later, we will be a waiting family. We will be adopting domestically and that will most likely mean we will have a forever relationship with our daughter's birth mom. I am so excited to have this special relationship with an amazing women that has chosen life for her child and for our daughter to know her birth mom. The boys are so excited (especially Rylen!) to have a sister. We moved them in together this week so they now officially share a room. They love it, but my nerves are torn, they just want to stay up and talk for hours. We are so blessed our boys love each other so much, we just need them to learn to go to sleep in the same room! We would appreciate your prayers as we make this journey to bring Anna Carson home.
