The Miracle of Life
This post has been in my heart and on mind for a long, long time. In fact, I have been not so patiently waiting for the opportunity to write it since last year. Because of the sensitive and unpredictable nature of a private, domestic adoption, I chose not to even discuss it here on the blog. However, the love of our Heavenly Father was poured out upon my sister, Deb, and brother-in-law, Andy recently. And now we all can shout it from the mountaintops.
He was born weighing 7 lb. 12 oz. Joshua's birthmom chose Deb and Andy to parent him waaaaaaaaay back in November of last year. For prospective adoptive parents, it was like an eternity to wait that long. Although he has been in their hearts since that time, he has finally arrived and in their arms. They couldn't be happier. Birthmom, forever mom and baby are all doing wonderfully. We are so thrilled for them and their growing family and consider it a privledge to call this little munchkin our nephew.
