Your story didn’t begin on Friday, October 4, 2013. It all started years ago with a family who wanted another child to call their own. When people heard this, some thought they were a little crazy. Weren’t four children enough? And where would they get this child? But this family knew and trusted that God would provide.

As the years went by clothes and baby items were gifted and tests were passed, but still no child. An adoption center was found, paperwork was filled out, and profiles posted, but still no child. A new house was found, and improvements were being planned when finally a call was received that a baby was on its way! With no time to spare, a house was renovated and moved in to, but when the time came, it was made clear that this baby was not to be their child. Tears were shed and prayers were made and still no child was to be had.

Baby girl, you will hear over the years the ups and downs your family went through to find you. So when they received a call that you were born, tiny and just the size of a coconut, know that you were the answer to all their prayers.

Before the beginning of the world, you were chosen to live out this picture of agape love to all those around you.

While your birth mother was the one who chose this family to become your own, God in heaven was the ultimate writer of your story.

And my prayer for you is that before too long, you will also be adopted into His forever family with God not only as your Savior, but also your heavenly Father!
