Lucas & Destany, 2.5 years and 10 months old
If you know us IRL (in real life), you know we've been praying for an expectant mom who was considering choosing us to adopt her baby girl, due in about 2 months. (We don't post details about potential matches -- only ask for prayer. Thanks for understanding! :)
We were so deeply encouraged by your immediate outpouring of love, prayers for all involved, and a desire to help us fundraise to pay the adoption/legal fees.
It looks like that match is not happening after all, and we are grieving that, but trusting God with the outcome. We know He has a plan for this Mama and her precious daughter.
Starting to get ready for this little girl to join our family definitely confirmed for us that we can't wait to adopt again. Even our children were ready to jump in whole-heartedly. :) Our local agency has very few waiting families right now -- they have had so many placements lately that they are at an all-time low number of available families. So we are excited to put our energy into fundraising again, and we will be available as soon as possible. In the meantime, our agency knows they can call us with an emergency placement if we are needed.
My heart goes pitter-patter at just the thought of a call. :)
