Congratulations to this sweet family on the big FIRST BIRTHDAY of their sweet Piper!
I adore Tyler and Erin — they signed on with me in April of 2016 and were trusting in divineProvidence to lead them to their child. I immediately starting working with them to become Home Study certified,as our team designed their awesome family profile book.
They were home study ready in May, and open to every case I shared with them. It is always so disappointing to hear a No. But in adoption, I have learned there’s always a reason. The “no” you might hear, is because your sweet forever baby is waiting somewhere else. The Lord is orchestrating so many details behind the scenes.
Here’s a snapshot of the most momentous day in the life of Tyler and Erin…. Sometimes your miracle may be right around the corner from you:
The above photo was taken earlier this month — celebrating one year of Piper!!
But this story started a year ago….. in a little hospital not too far away from their home…
“Our story is unique. We went to work on July 6, 2016 with no child on our radar.
We had been prayerfully considering presenting to a birth mother.
Two hours after arriving at work we got a phone call. A baby girl was born and the birth mother wanted us to leave the hospital with her. We had two hours to get to the hospital with paperwork from our attorney. We didn’t even HAVE an attorney due to the fact we didn’t see the need in having one on standby in our own community!
We were completely convinced we would be at least waiting six months to be matched. We could not have been more wrong and God saw fit to bring us our precious girl. We started with CAC?at the end of April, were home study approved by the end of May, and welcomed our baby girl the beginning of July.
We had a baby in about two and a half months!
God has taught us so much about his faithfulness through our adoption journey.
He has proven himself faithful time and time again. There have been times in our journey where we were absolutely terrified and to be honest wondering if we would be able to survive emotionally, but God who is RICH in mercy gave us his perfect peace. He is able to do exceedingly more than we could even imagine, and he has.
