Andy and Jill first contacted me way back in February of this year. They had walked through a very big adoption heart ache prior to this, but knew in their hearts that the Lord had someone for their family! We talked off and on for several months, and on August 28th, they decided that it was time to move forward.
Near the end of October they were matched with a baby due in just a few weeks. That handsome little man was born on Friday!
Here’s a true story. I like to do the math sometimes. I like to see the order of God’s plan. Though we never fully get to understand all of His plans, sometimes He gives us a glimpse to help build our faith and to help us to trust Him when we don’t understand. The first email that I received from Jill was written to me the week that her son was conceived. In that email she explained that they had just experienced a very difficult failed placement and she said, “We feel strongly that God has someone out there for us.”
Then Jill drug her feet. She wrote me again in August saying, “This is your most annoying/indecisive yet to be client.” She explained that they had experienced another match that they felt like they were to say yes to but she didn’t feel a solid peace about it, and that it had recently fallen through. She told me they were ready to move forward.
Jill didn’t drag her feet. God drug Jill’s feet. He KNEW with that very first email that Jill and Andy already had a son. He knew that I was part of the story. So HE drug Jill’s feet. He slowed her down. He even directed Andy and Jill to say yes to another match that wouldn’t result in a placement because He knew they would pray over that child and that birthmom and HE chose them for that task.
Andy and Jill followed the Lord’s leading and He used every step of the journey to lead them to the son that He had already woven into their story.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
