Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes for my last post. We still have not heard anything from or about that birth mother and continue to pray for her as she makes her decision.
In the meantime...
We received another call on Thursday afternoon about another birth mother. It was from an agency we originally weren't planning to use. It's amazing to us how many details have already been taken care of in this situation and how we can see God's hand working. The baby is due on January 9th and if all goes according to how we would like it to, this baby will become a part of our family very soon!!!
As you can imagine, my mind is racing at full speed. I lay in bed thinking of all the things that need to be done. It's amazing though how quickly things can get done when you set your mind to it! On Saturday, Kevin repainted the changing table and I pulled out and washed baby clothes. The kids have been helping too.
Please pray with us. Pray for Jessica (birth mom) especially...for her decision, delivery and the health of the baby. There are still so many details to work out. Pray for our minds to be put at ease, worries to be calmed and that the process would continue to go smoothly. We should be hearing from our attorney again this week after he meets with Jessica. We'll keep you updated.
Oh, and... "IT'S A GIRL!!!"
HELP!!! We need some name ideas that flow nicely with our two kiddos...if anyone has any, please post them in the comments. :)
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
