Matt and Becca called me in August last year about starting their adoption journey.
Matt and Becca did their homework. They had been on the journey to grow their family for awhile and when they decided adoption was the route to go, they wanted to make sure they did things right. They asked a ton of great questions on the front side of their process:
What home study agency is the best around?
How do we go about finding a good placing agency?
Who is an ethical attorney we can use?
How do we know the birth family is getting all the care and counsel they need?
Is there anything we can do to keep the risks as low as possible?
When they chose to go with Christian Adoption Consultants to help them on their journey, they dove in. Matt and Becca were able to get all of their questions answered and support along they way. I connected them with a home study social worker and two months later their home study was complete. Then, after connecting them to adoption agencies, they were matched just two months after that.
And a few weeks ago, this sweet face entered the world.
It's been such a joy to watch this family through the entire process; as they diligently worked through their home study, as they wrestled with possible situations and prayed through what was the right fit for the family, and even as they decorated and prepared their nursery for a little one.
In the end, Matt and Becca's hard work paid off.
Their wait was worth it.
And I'm sure their journey to their daughter will turn out to be only the beginning of many wonderful adventures as a family...
