God's Plan is Greater!

Well friends we got some disappointing news this past week…  Last week we got the call that no adoptive family wants to get.  The expectant mother we were matched with called the agency and said she has decided to parent the baby.  While we are disappointed that this precious baby was not meant for our family, we support this mother and her choice completely.   We are committed to praying for her and the baby girl she is carrying!  

So what does this mean for us moving forward?  It means that we are back in the matching phase of the process.  Thankfully 100% of the agency fees we have already paid will be rolled over to another situation within their agency.  We are so thankful and grateful for this!  This is huge and super uncommon in the adoption world.  With many failed adoptions, the adoptive family loses money.  We are beyond grateful that everything we have saved and raised will go toward another situation. 

Shortly after I got the call Haven woke up from her nap.  As I walked into her room she jumped up and down in her crib squealing with excitement and in that moment the Lord sweetly whispered to me “look at your daughter, remember that I am faithful and I have a plan.”  And I swooped my sweet girl up with tears streaming down my face and reflected on her adoption story.  We were never “meant” to adopt domestically.  Our plan was international adoption.  And when the Lord closed the door on international adoption I remember being devastated and confused.  It didn’t all make sense until we met our sweet girl.  That she was the plan for us all along.  So while it’s sad that this isn’t going as we thought/hoped/prayed it would, we know fully that God’s plan is so much greater than ours. 

Thank you for praying for us and encouraging our family in this journey!  We are beyond grateful for the love and support of so many!
