Sorry for the delay in updating you all about the wonderful couple and their adoption process. I am so glad to report that I have happy news!
Since things aren’t completely “official” yet and I’m not sure how public they want to be, I am still not going to reveal their “identity.” Any-who, it looks like these two are going to be parents of a beautiful baby boy!! He was born on the 30th, so he is just an itty bitty little man. They will get to meet him, hold him and love on him for the first time tomorrow. He is doing well, but unfortunately was exposed to meth, as his birth mother used that and possibly other substances while pregnant. We are praying that he won’t suffer any long term effects from the exposure. He is currently in an amazing facility that serves babies suffering from drug withdrawal after birth. Hopefully he will be discharged soon and they can begin their life together as a family of 3.
So, we are rejoicing and thanking God for this gift of life. This sweet little boy has a mommy and daddy that will love his socks, or booties at this point, off. I can’t wait to watch him grow, to see his mother and father flourish as parents, and to bathe him in kisses.
I’m so reminded of God’s faithfulness and hope you are too. When life, well, sucks and seems completely “unfair” (though I hate that word), hopeless, or you feel that God has completely forgotten you exist or simply doesn’t care, He hasn’t. He’s there, even in the small stuff. And His loves does not fail. That doesn’t mean things aren’t going to, well, suck. They will. He makes no promises and on the contrary tells us that things are going to be pretty freakin’ dark at times. But have hope, cling to the promise that He will never leave and His loves truly does endure.
