Dear friends, if you’ve not been following the twitternado that we’ve been posting, then you don’t know that we have expanded our family.
We have been praying about adoption for some time and twins have been on our heart for years, so yesterday, when I received a blog comment from someone who said their sister in law just had twins and wanted to give them up for adoption, we went into hypersonic mode.
It was literally a race against time to get the children adopted before they went into state care, except they were in another state – Florida! By 10:30pm we were in New Orleans, renting a car and racing towards Pensacola. We checked into a hotel at 3AM and were at the hospital by 8:30AM to meet with the birth mom.
Mid-afternoon, she relinquished her rights and our attorney helped us walk the rest out with the hospital. We left the hospital with our girls around 4pm. In between there some where we bought two car seats, a couple of blankets and a pack of diapers. Remember, we didn’t plan on doing this. At least not this week.
We still need prayer – we’re tired and now have TWO NEWBORNS! Sorry. I giggle a lot when I say that. We also need to pay for these dolls. They were significantly cheaper than our last adoption, but with travel will run into the $15k range.
THANK YOU for all of those who have contributed so generously – we are truly humbled. You are playing a part of this crazy revolution. Feast your eyes, peeps.
