We were told today that a birth mom who is due in May is going to be looking at our family profile for the first time tomorrow! Our profile basically is the first look into our family that a birth mom will see. Its a first impression really. For those of you who don’t know what a “profile” is, its basically like a picture album of our family but with detailed information about our family in it, its a brief description of why we want to adopt, where we live, what we like to do, a little about each of us, etc. It’s 10 pages long, so we got as detailed as we could, but there is so much more we have to say! I just hope that she gives us a chance to meet her in person and get to know us a little more.
This is a big day tomorrow, not only for us, but for her as well. She is looking at different families to raise the baby she is carrying, what an incredibly hard thing to have to do! I can only imagine how emotional it could be for her. Please pray for her tomorrow (and possibly the birth father if he is in the picture), that she have the courage and strength to consider her options and as she’s looking at the various families that she could choose.
My prayer is that she has a peace about the decision she makes, that she may know instantly that we or another family is who she knows this child belongs to. There couldn’t be anything worse than such a life changing, huge decision and not being clear on which family to chose. So that is my prayer for her. Right or wrong, I pray that she have “that feeling” as those birth moms often say they have upon seeing the family they choose. I prayer for clarity, for Gods love to surround her, for peace in her decision.
I know that God has already chosen our children for us, I know His hand is all over this, and I know that with our adopted child comes the birth mom and/or birth father and God has chosen her for us as well as our child, and we are so excited to meet her.
Please pray for her, for us, as we embark on the day that is tomorrow! I will keep you updated on what I hear next, if anything. Adoption is a long journey. This may or may not be one of many posts like this in the future. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers, and once again, thank you so much for following us in this journey! Your support, love and prayers mean so much to Roger, Aiden, and I! 🙂
