MATCHED!!!!!

WE ARE MATCHED!!!!!! I can hardly believe we are really saying these words.  A birth mama has picked us.  The story is one only the Lord could have written and I cannot wait to share more about our adoption story in the weeks ahead.  Some of the biggest news?  Our baby is due on my birthday.  In less than two weeks.  TWO WEEKS, Y'ALL!  We are so excited for the days ahead and we are eager to travel and meet our long awaited babe.  We've still got a ways to go in fundraising and we would be so humbled if you would consider giving, sharing our fundraising page with friends, and just praying for us.  Find the link to our fundraising page HERE.

We aren't sharing the race or gender of this Heart Grown Babe until after the birth for privacy reasons, but I guarantee that I'm already itching to share this baby with you.  I'm about to be a mama and I just cannot wait. 

Here are a few ways you can be praying for us these next two weeks:

-Pray for our birth mama.  She's doing something brave and hard and I just cannot even comprehend what her emotions are like.  Please pray for her heart as she prepares to give this baby life.  Pray for health that these next two weeks would be smooth and that she would have a good delivery.  Pray for her to feel completely loved by us!

-Pray for our baby as there are only days left until the birth.  Pray for health and safety during delivery!

-Pray for the Lord to provide every penny.  We would love to head into our placement being fully funded and debt-free.  We fully believe this can happen!

-Pray for easy travel for us.  We will travel once we know our mama is in labor, so please pray for us to be able to work out details quickly and easily!

-Pray for our hearts as we are so anxious to finally become parents!  Pray that we will be able to bond with our sweet babe easily and that we would encourage each other with grace as we head into a new season of marriage. 

We are so thankful for each one of you and how you've encouraged us and supported us through this adoption process.  Now we are only days away from sharing OUR BABY with you!!!! Thank you Jesus for this babe!
