A new match

We are excited to announce that we have been re-matched with a baby to adopt!  A situation presented itself to us that was out of our original realm of consideration, but the Lord clearly laid on our heart that we needed to courageously follow Him.  He was asking us to trust Him and be obedient.  So, we are working very hard to do that.  Her due date is March 13th, meaning we could get a phone call any day now.  We are so excited about this opportunity to bring a new little one to our home.  The situation she is coming from is difficult, and to protect her, we have chosen not to disclose all of the details.  We just know that she needs us, and we need her.  We are praying for a healthy delivery for both baby and mother and for a chance to witness to the birth mother.  We are intending to be a reflection of Christ's love and are praying her heart will be receptive.   We have a conference call this week with the birth mother and it will be our first opportunity to speak with her.  Please pray that we will know the right things to say. Please pray for us as we are working out the travel details, finances, and all that comes with it.  Please pray with us for our baby and the birth mother. We are excited about where He is leading and we will keep you updated!
