I remember the day that James and Megan first inquired with CAC. Megan is a NICU nurse and was continually taking care of babies while not having one to call her own. The longing in her voice I will never forget. They signed on with me and hit the ground running, which did not surprise me! They prayerfully went through each case they were sent and presented their profile many times and even met with an expectant mother in person to later not be chosen. They remained steadfast through all the no’s and then in one fell swoop, they were chosen and traveling to meet their son. Today they share their story about how God was with them in their adoption journey!
We discussed adoption early in our relationship and knew it was something we always wanted to do. After our home study was complete, we signed our contract with CAC and began working with Meg. We cannot express how incredible it has been working with her. She is caring, compassionate, and quick to respond to any questions. Her knowledge of the adoption process is so helpful, and we include her when sharing our son’s adoption story. We are forever grateful for her!
While on vacation celebrating James’ birthday in the summer, we found out about a baby boy needing a forever family. This was a unique case where his birth mother chose to allow the attorney to choose a family for her baby boy as the decision was too overwhelming for her. He reviewed the criteria she was looking for in an adoptive family and ultimately, he chose us. We were overjoyed! We drove to Florida and met our son, Michael. Our finalization court date was November 29, 2021, officially welcoming Michael to our family!
While it only took us three months to get matched after signing with CAC, the process of becoming parents was a long, hard road. There were many times we felt like it would never happen but were reminded of some advice from Megan’s father: Whenever I feel alone, I believe God is paying a visit. Take that time to pray to Him and give Him all of your needs. Even though we felt like giving up multiple times, it was the first time in our lives that we left our plan to God while believing in him. We pray for current families in the wait that you turn to God often and experience this blessing of solely relying on Him.
