It's like having TWINS


When Audrey was about 6 months old or so, Tim and I started to talk about adopting again. We quickly acted on what we felt we were supposed to do. We thought maybe this time since we didn't get a boy the first time we should go to Haiti and adopt from the orphanage that the adoption agency was involved in. We inquired about Haiti and found out that the government was telling all non essential persons to leave the country, that it was getting dangerous. The agency wasn't pursuing any adoptions from there at that time. Well, with that said, we decided to get put back on the adoption list with our agency. I was in the process of trying to put together another book for the birth mothers. Tim and I have an open adoption with Audrey's birth mother and had received a call from her saying that her cousin was pregnant. She told us that she already had a family picked out but wanted to know if she could visit with her so she could see how we did the whole open adoption thing. We had no problem with this, we were waiting for a boy. Little did we know that God had other plans. Within minutes of the birth moms leaving, I got a call asking if we would like to be the parents of the newest baby. This totally took me by surprise. I didn't really know what to say, all I could think of was this can't be happening. I was very ecstatic and completely taken by surprise. I can truly say that the Lord has Blessed me beyond my wildest dreams. I never in my life dreamed I would have it this good. All the glory goes to God on this one.
