As Natalie and Robb tell their story of bringing home their daughter Penelope, it won’t take you long to realize that God was the author. His trademark was all over every detail. It was all to bring Him glory. To reveal His faithfulness. To keep His promise. Although their story is incredibly beautiful, it didn’t come without difficulties. It didn’t come without constantly saying “yes” and trusting Jesus. It didn’t even come without heartache and disappointment. They brought their sweet baby girl, Penelope, home just 4 days before Christmas! God gave them the greatest gift and allowed me to watch their miracle unfold from the sidelines. Natalie and Robb have special hearts and it was the greatest joy to see them bring home their baby girl. I will always cheer you guys on!
Natalie shares their story in her own words:
“My husband, Robb, and I decided to adopt in the Spring. After speaking with several agencies, we connected with Jonnilyn at CAC. We immediately clicked with her and signed on in the summer! She was so easy to talk with and very understanding. She helped with all the paper work and answered all of my emails and many questions! In October, we presented to an expecting mother who chose us to be the parents of her child. Later we walked through an interrupted adoption. The birth mother chose to parent. Jonnilyn continued to support us, pray for us and answer all of our questions. Although it wasn’t easy, we continued moving forward. Then, 10 days later I received a call from the same agency that there was a 4 day old baby girl and we had been chosen to be her parents! As soon as we got off the phone we booked a ticket and were on the move. I called Jonnilyn and told her the news and she was so happy for us! She prayed for safe travels and remained a very constant comforting resource for my family. We reached out to her with several questions while we were there and she was always available for us. After 2 weeks we brought our sweet baby girl home, just 4 days before Christmas!”
Your sweet family is beautiful and I cannot tell you how grateful I am to have been a small part of it growing!
