The following is from Katie Fenska, one of our Adoption Consultants.You can find her blog here.
God always is doing more behind the scenes than we know. His ways are often so mysterious but He is always at work. Adam and Audra’s adoption story is another example of His perfect plans unfolding in His perfect timing.
My husband “just happened” to be talking with another pastor in the area and “just happened” to mention Christian Adoption Consultants. That pastor “just happened” to be Adam and Audra’s pastor and he “just happened” to pass along my contact info to them. In October last year, Audra and I got together to talk about life and adoption and in December they started with Tracie, planning to one day adopt a baby boy.
What they hoped would be a relatively quick home-study process ended up taking more time than planned…it didn’t make sense and it wasn’t easy. But God was working behind the scenes. On July 16 they heard about a situation and that same day their home-study was ready! They hadn’t originally intended on applying to this specific agency, but they decided to go ahead and apply with them and present. It seemed perfect! But it was not the child God had for them. It didn’t make sense, but God was working behind the scenes.
For the next couple weeks, Adam and Audra spent time really seeking God. He spoke very directly to their hearts about being open to whatever He had for them. And then they heard about another situation from the same agency. A little girl was going to be born soon. God’s ways are often mysterious, but He is always at work. They presented. They were chosen.
Almost a month after they had applied with the agency they never intended to apply with in the first place, their daughter was born!
His perfect plans unfolded in His perfect timing. And now, Adam and Audra look at their two beautiful daughters and see what God was doing behind the scenes all that time!
