We're expecting a baby boy!! AND, he will be here in less than 3 weeks (unless he decides to come early of course)! We've been waiting to share the news, because with adoption, things can always change, and obviously still can, but we want everyone to be praying for everyone involved. God has been working mightily and He has answered our prayer, as well as the prayer of this dear, young woman, who is blessing us with this little life. God's timing is truly perfect. We are extremely excited, and honestly, a little nervous too! I can't wait to share the whole story with you all!
Please pray for this young woman (she is amazing by the way!), as the next few weeks will be very difficult for her. That the Lord would give her comfort and strength. That she would have a safe delivery, (I know she is quite nervous about that part). For the baby, that he would be strong and healthy. Please pray for us too. We will have to be out-of-state for 1 week (or more) after the baby is born, living in a hotel room until paperwork can be processed between her state and ours. Dan won't leave me in another state, alone in a hotel room with a new baby; so he has to take unpaid time off of work. Pray for the Lord's continued provision. Also, pray that the paperwork can be processed QUICKLY between the two states, so we can return home quickly. Also, that the Lord would give us wisdom in raising a son.
Again, I want to thank everyone who has been praying for us, supporting us, encouraging us, and those who have donated to help ease the financial burden that comes with adoption. (There are a lot of you!) We are truly blessed!! We cannot wait to share the rest of this story and introduce you to this tiny, yet HUGE, answer to prayer. :)
