Taylor and Blake are a CAC family that adopted with the help of Adoption Consultant Meg. Today they share the amazing story that led them to their son. We pray their words are an encouragement to you wherever you are at in your adoption journey!
In Tara’s Words:
It was seven years ago is when I first felt the Holy Spirit nudging me to trust him in a way I never knew was possible. He planted the thought of adoption in my heart. I had been married for two years, was pregnant with my 2nd child, and never even thought of it before much less had a conversation with Blake about it. I kept the “nudge” in my heart for another year before I shared it with my sister and a friend who had previously adopted two children.
Fast forward four years later after countless conversations with Blake, many tears, prayers and an immense amount of trust in God – we reached out to our first agency to apply for adoption. We made the decision to move forward with adoption!
Shortly after we started the adoption process our family experienced quite a few road blocks. We suffered an immense loss around this time, which caused us to put everything on hold until we could make it back to stable ground emotionally for us and our three kiddos. Our hearts were filled with so much doubt and confusion during this time. But we clung on to the truth that the God of the mountains is the same God of the valleys.
We ended up leaving that agency only to be led to Meg at Christian Adoption Consultants. Seven months after completing our home study we held our precious son, William! Although there were many road blocks, no’s, disappointments, and tears along the way, it was worth every ounce to persevere through the process. The glory of God is radiating out of William’s story-more than we could ever fathom. We can’t wait to see how the Lord’s plans continue to unfold for our William!
