Very close friends of ours had recently adopted their son with the help of Christian Adoption Consultants and highly recommended them. That was the last push we needed to take the next steps. We emailed CAC the next day, and Leah contacted us shortly after. From the moment we first spoke we knew she was a perfect match for us. She was so kind, supportive, understanding, and knowledgeable.
We presented many times before we matched. Leah would kindly remind us each time that it was not God’s plan, and our baby was still out there. After a few very difficult “no’s” we decided to take a different approach. Instead of mourning the “no’s” we choose to celebrate each baby’s match and pray for that child, birth mom, and the new family that finally got their “yes.” It really helped us stay positive during these difficult times. We knew our time would come, just not when. We rejoiced after nine long months of waiting, we finally got our “yes!” We were so nervous to talk to our son’s birth mom, but when we did we could not have been happier. This was God’s plan for us.
Going through this process together as a family has strengthened our faith in God and our love for each other. It was amazing during the months that we were going through our journey how the messages each week in church seemed like they were meant for just for us, with reminders of patience, strength, and trust in His plan. We are all closer now and happier than ever, with each day being more of a blessing than the last.
