There is something so beautiful when you walk alongside a family who’s hearts are postured towards love every step of the way. I remember the first time I talked with Jack and Alyssa, the questions they were asking were so pure. They had little to do with them and everything to do with the support and well being of the expectant mom they might one day be chosen by. Throughout their entire adoption journey they put that love at the forefront of their path, which led them to an amazing women who would trust them with the most precious thing, her son. I feel so honored to have been trusted to walk alongside them and witness them become parents for the first time. Please read their words and be encouraged by their story.
Adoption is something that my husband and I talked about before we were even married. We are both very passionate about adoption and knew that we wanted it to be a part of how our family grew. In February 2019, God clearly and vividly told us that it was time for us to start our adoption journey. After praying about it and discussing it together, we decided that adoption was going to be how we started our family. I immediately began researching everything that I could, and that is how we found CAC. We had a very important list of standards in who we chose to work with and CAC was the right fit. After talking with Fallon, we knew that if we were going to adopt we absolutely wanted to have her expertise and encouragement throughout the process because she made us feel so comfortable and at ease.
Our roller coaster adoption became a lot more crazy when we hit some bumps in the road. We were afraid, his birth momma was afraid, but in the end God worked it all out beautifully. Fallon was such an encouragement through it all, checking up on us every day and seeing what she could do to help. I don’t know how we would have gotten through that month without her!
That time at the hospital was so sacred and humbling. We spent the whole day with Momma D while she was in labor, and we were able to meet our sweet boy just a few minutes after he was born. I will never forget the moment I laid eyes on him- everything, every disappointment, every bit of stress, was completely worth it. I’m pretty sure that his birth momma and I pretty much only said “isn’t he just perfect?” Back and forth for the first two days because he truly was the picture of perfection to us all! We now have an open adoption with Momma D and we love her so so much.
