Congratulations, David and Amber!


Dave and Amy adopted their daughter a couple of months before Josh and I brought home our little guy. I was thrilled when I found out earlier this year that I'd be assisting their dear friends, David and Amber, as they began working with their CAC adoption consultant, Tracie Loux.

As I started to get to know them through working on their family profile, I was blown away by David and Amber's selflessness. They clearly were eager to add to their family through the gift of adoption, but their focus wasn't on having a baby. Their focus was really on seeking to trust in God's timing and on loving and praying for the woman that would be their little one's birthmom. 



My faith has been strengthened so much as I watched this sweet couple walk out true Christ-reflecting love. They had a breathtaking trust in His loving plans. "We want His will to be done, whatever that may be," Amber texted me multiple times. Their story is beautiful and so is their son!

More of their whirlwind journey is re-posted below with permission from Tracie's blog:

It’s TORNADO SEASON and many adoptions happen much like a WHIRLWIND!
Everything is still and quiet and then BAM, it changes in a moment.
David and Amber started with CAC in mid-February, their home study was completed June 17th, and on June 26th they heard about a baby that needed a family. They said, “YES” and waited.
On Monday, they found out they were MATCHED, and that they had to get on a plane pronto because baby was on his way!
The social worker with the agency told them that she had maybe only seen such a strong, instant connection like that between an adoptive family and a birth family once before. She said she was just amazed by the connection!
They welcomed this little man, and the amazing woman who gave him the gift of life,  into their lives and nothing will ever be the same.
I am so honored to have been part of this family’s journey. They have walked through some incredible up’s and down’s in the past few days and they have surrendered the journey to the Lord with every step.
His ways are perfect and His plans are good!
