Dave and Amy are a couple with passionate hearts for adoption. They brought home their beautiful daughter with the assistance of Christian Adoption Consultants a little over a year ago. In her own words, Amy shares some of their story with us:
“Adoption was something my husband Dave and I had discussed before we were married. It didn’t happen how we thought it would, but we are so thankful for how it happened. God’s plan was much greater than ours. We thought we would have some children through pregnancies and then maybe someday adopt. Well, after struggling with infertility for a few years we decided we were done with the appointments, tests, treatments, and all of it! So we started pursing domestic adoption. We ended up choosing a local agency in our hometown for domestic adoption, got our homestudy done and then waited. After over a year and half of waiting we were discouraged, frustrated, and feeling God push us to do something different. We felt unsupported and just not hopeful in our process.
So we started praying about what to do next. Then my sister-in-law called and said her neighbor was telling her about CAC and they knew someone who was matched with a baby in 3 months! Honestly, my response was “Yea, everyone knows someone who got a baby in 3 months, it won’t happen to us!” Yet we felt God urging us to call. So after looking at the CAC website I made the first phone call, Tracie answered and we talked. She answered some of our questions and emailed some more information. In a matter of minutes I felt more supported by that conversation then I had in months and we weren’t even a client yet! So a few days later Dave called Tracie to ask some more questions. Then we prayed and felt CAC was where God was leading us.
From day one we knew Tracie was not only praying for us but for the baby and our birthmother that God would lead us to. Our process now had God as the center of growing our family, we seriously felt like a weight had been lifted. We started filling out agency paperwork and Tracie started working on our portfolio book (huge relief the one I had done for our local agency had me in tears because it was just a lot of pressure!). Then through Tracie we heard about a birthmother 7 months pregnant but she wasn’t even done with our portfolio because we just signed our CAC contract over a week ago! So we overnighted our portfolio from our local agency to the lawyer the birthmom was working with. And the next day read an email that said “She chose you to be the parents of her baby girl!” What?! Followed by text messages and phone calls from Tracie. The next two months were a blur and Tracie helped us get through it and taught us to love our little girl’s birthmom in a way that helped build the foundation for what we pray is a lifelong relationship for all of us. Tracie finished our portfolio personalizing it and taking our words of gratefulness and love for our birthmom making it into a gift for her.
We recommend CAC to everyone who shows an interest in adoption, and of course Tracie! Tracie’s genuine heart for the babies, birthmoms, and adoptive families just makes the overwhelming process easier. Also for us it was such a difference to have a strong Christian with you through the process. To have the person you are working with to grow your family pray over you all and help encourage you to keep God in the center of it makes all the difference in the world. Our baby girl is 16 months and even though we live nowhere near Tracie she will always be part of our lives! And we will be calling her again!”
