Miracles still Happen!
...and our Laura Beth is one of them! It seemed like babies
were everywhere except in our home. So we'd call into Lifetime,
check on our profiles, hoping to be told good news! And Lifetime
would tell us "When the right one for you comes, it'll
be all the more special". We'd hang up the phone, disappointed...
but one day a miracle happened!
A very special birthmother had chosen us! She wanted us
to have her baby girl who was due soon. A very special two
months followed. We would visit by phone about once a week.
This was neat because it felt like we got to know our
little girl's birthmother a little better.
day Laura was born is a day we will never forget. We were
able to be at the hospital and start bonding with our beautiful
baby girl. It was special meeting Laura's birth family...
we now have good memories to share with her. Laura is everything
we could dream for! Derek - ten, and Jaylen - six, adore
their little sister. Our hearts overflow with thanks.
A word of encouragement to
waiting families... While we
were waiting, I would pray that God would impress a birthmother
somewhere to chose us. Our birthmother said she prayed for
direction when she had the profiles to chose from, and
for some reason, our profile stood out to her. So God does
have a perfect plan for you just waiting to happen!
