A Miracle in the Making.....



Well folks it seems just when you have every thing planned out as best as you can, a turn of events can fall into your lap out of nowhere!!! Yesterday our lives were surprised with a miracle in the making. Let me explain....

Sweetness' nephew, who is 18, called and left a message saying he needed to talk to his uncle right away, and sounded very distraught. So he called him back and to our total surprise he informed us that he had gotten his ex-girlfriend pregnant!!! We had no idea..... Well to make it worse they both have NO MONEY, no car, and no way to care for this precious little baby to be born in October. Well I guess you know where this is going, he wants us to adopt the baby so it stays in the family. WOW. JUST WOW.

So you all know we have been down this road before so we are cautiously excited. WE spoke to him at length about if he realized the seriousness of the situation and that it can not be undone. Is he willing to be known as a cousin and not the father etc.? He said he knows this is the right thing to do, he can not provide for any one let alone himself with anything. So fast forward a couple of hours and we spoke with the young girl, and she said her parents are very angry at her. They told her if she keep the baby, she will have to move out etc. She said she had made up her mind awhile ago that she was going to place the baby for adoption, and she would rather us have the child than go through an agency.

There is so much more I could write, but right now we are cautiously excited, and have soooo much to do. The baby is a little girl, who is due Oct. 28th. They all live in Pennsylvania and we are planning a trip up there to visit and meet her in about 6-8 weeks.

So we are asking all of our prayer warriors to please pray that HIS will is done in this situation for everyone concerned most importantly this innocent little baby to have the best life she can. We are really thrilled, I actually opened the door to the nursery and sat in there today and imagined what it would be like to rock her and love her. What would it look like to look back in my car and see a car seat there?? Oh the simple yet so exciting things that we may embark on in just a few short months!!!

I know you guys will have some questions for us, mainly WHAT ABOUT THE SURROGACY????? We spoke with our surrogate today and she is very supportive and understanding of what this situation means for us. But we will continue this process and see if we can have our biological child. We may have a house full very soon!!!! But given this situation now, we may only transfer one embryo into our surrogate because I know I could not handle triplets if she got pregnant with twins!

So wow we have a lot going on, but its all good and we are so thankful that the Lord has heard our cry and is answering our prayers.

We covet your prayers and we are mainly concerned about the financial aspect of all of this, so we ask for discernment and direction in how to juggle it all. Thank you for walking this journey with us!!!
