Here is a sweet update from one of our adoptive families who adopted their baby boy six weeks ago! They share some lovely, encouraging words to waiting parents:
“I can’t believe it was just six weeks ago that we got “the call” from you! We could never have predicted that we’d be heading for the hospital the very next day!
God answered our prayer when He brought us Jude! The past three years have been long and sometimes difficult, but God was so faithful! He knew the right birth mom and the perfect baby, and that they would come in His timing.
We want to encourage all the waiting parents out there—this will happen! Believe me, we actually got the call the day before our three-year contract date, and now having Jude here—we wouldn’t have it any other way!
We chose his name, Jude, as Jude was the saint who brought hope to the hopeless—what a perfect name! Big sisters Lucy and Sadie are so overjoyed with Jude! Thank you for bringing his lovely birth mom to use! We are so blessed!”
