A Day of Celebration!

Nine years ago today, a woman on the other side of the world gave the most wonderful blessing anyone can get! She gave birth to a baby boy and gave him up for adoption. If not for her sacrifice, I wouldn't have the privilege of being the mother to one of the most wonderful boy! He's an absolute joy in my life!! He makes every day special! So, today I celebrate that woman and thank her for sharing him with a family she would never know. She trusted that God would take care of him until his daddy and I could get there.
One of the many amazing parts of our story is the timing of our adventure. Michael and I tried for many years using many methods to get pregnant without any success. We were unwilling to give up and knew that we wanted to be parents. You see about the time we decided to adopt is just about the same time that Bobby’s biological mother became pregnant. The process of adoption is lengthy whether you are doing domestic or international. Our process took around two years from the time we started our adoption process to the time we got our baby. Our little boy turned two shortly before we arrived in Kazakhstan. Now that’s a God thing!
Of course, that’s not the only amazing part of our story. There are so many that I can’t name them all in one entry. I promise to come back and share more of this amazing child that God sent us.
I thought it was appropriate to include pictures from our first visit with Bobby
