Congratulations, Eddie and Anna.

I will never forget the first conversation I had with sweet Anna. She was on her way back from a full (and probably tiring!) school field-trip that she had chaperoned, but Anna was anything but tired. This girl was bursting with excitement about getting started with their adoption journey and she was so much fun to talk to! That same incredible enthusiasm, passion, and hope in God radiated from Anna throughout their adoption process.

Knowing that adoption had already been in their hearts for quite a while, I so hoped that Eddie and Anna would not have to wait long to have their child in their arms. I remember emailing Anna saying something like, "Not every adoption happens quickly, but I'm going to pray that God would bless you guys with a fast process!" Meanwhile, Anna was also praying that the Lord would send them a summer baby. And that's exactly what He did. His timing was perfect.

Eddie and Anna, you guys are amazing and I have loved watching God at work in and through you during this adoption. Thank you for letting me be a part of it!

Every story longs to be told.
Every journey longs be lived.
This family put their feet to the journey, and watched as God told an amazing story through their lives.

A little boy was born.
His mother made a very brave decision because she believed that though she was not ready to be a parent, that her son’s life was a treasure. 
She reached out for help.
This precious family said yes to a whirlwind and rushed to meet their son.PART_1407615886174_IMG958342

Adoption is complicated.
It is bittersweet.
It’s never the same story. But every story is deep and full. 
When Eddie and Anna contacted us in May, they knew it was time for them to get ready and they had dreams of a summer baby. Every time a possible situation came up they prayed and asked the Lord to lead the journey. 
I called Anna on August 2nd, and said, “Anna there’s a little boy. He needs a family. He’s already born and I need to know if you can travel tomorrow.” 
Within hours, Eddie and Anna had booked flights and were making childcare arrangements for their children.
Every story. Every single time. A miracle.
