Last night we got a message from Birthmom. This is what it said;
"Your daughter is just a kickin' like crazy tonight"
Such a small thing and yet it means the world to us!! We are constantly amazed at the how strong this Birthmom is and the incredible sacrifice she is making to give us her child. She didn't have to share that with us but she chose to let us know that our daughter was kickin' like crazy last night!! As a woman I have always dreamed about what it would be like to have a little baby growing inside of me and to get to feel those little kicks as the baby grows. Infertility has robbed me of that dream. I am so thankful that Birthmom was willing to share with me and let me have a little glimpse of what it's like to have my baby kickin' inside of me. I may not feel her in my womb but I can sure feel her kickin' in my heart and I am in love! I can't wait to meet this little girl that is just a kickin' away as she grows and is formed into the perfect little baby that God is creating her to be.
Please continue to pray for the birth family and all involved. Your prayers are sooo appreciated and I know God hears each one!

Words can’t express how excited we are to announce that we will become parents to a sweet baby girl in August! To give you all a little background information, Jesse and I connected with a birth mom from
“Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast…” Hebrews 6:19
No matter what comes of this we know that God will be right by our side through the whole thing and give us grace and peace even if it does not go as we planned. Please pray for our baby girl, that she can be healthy, please pray for the birth family, that they can feel God’s presence and peace in this very difficult time, and please pray for Jesse and I that we can have the words to say to comfort the birth family as well as show Christ to them. We appreciate all the prayers that have been said on our behalf in the past and we are so thankful for our God who is almighty and powerful and knows our future better than we know our past!
