Thinking of "V" and family today also.

Every adoption journey is different and unique, as is every child, and some are more predictable than others.

This weekend suddenly produced one of those more unique journeys, and our newest set of parents (members of our "Are We There Yet" orientation class of February, 2009) are surely pinching themselves, just to be sure it's for real! One week back, they were just another set of Parents-in-Waiting, longing for phone calls from expectant parents considering adoption. They'd had a few, but none that seemed to go anywhere, and they were eager to settle into a match that would lead, in time, to placement.

They could never have guessed, just four days ago, that their lives were about to take such amazing turns, so rapidly! But many miles from their home, a fiercely independent and proud mom was entering a Texas hospital knowing she would birth a baby she couldn't take home with her, much as she wished things were different.

After months of private deliberation and quiet desperation, the pregnancy was over. Her baby was here and her decision was at hand. She carefully considered her options, called Abrazo, and found her baby a loving new home in a matter of hours. And being just-as-motivated people with open hearts and a ready homestudy, the adoptive couple of her choosing were more than happy to jump on a plane with just hours' notice, to get to Texas to be here for her. (And him.) Because that's the kind of caring folks they are.

They were where they were needed, when needed by a baby boy whose dear mama needed a family who could be just that ready. May the roads that lead from here and today be just as filled with joyous adventures, and may this precious baby boy always journey through life with full knowledge of and access to all who love him best. Blessings, all!

Welcome home Grace Ellen.

Arrival: 10:25pm on Thursday, July 23, 2009

Weight: 5 pounds 7 ounces

Length: 18 inches

"Faith is the evidence of things unseen..." reads Hebrew 11:1. Here's to those who have the faith to wait on God's plan and the grace to know God's plan is always best.

How ironic that you would post this. Once Grace was finally released from the hospital today (after some delays) we were driving to the hotel and we passed a Luthern Church...the sign out front read "God's timing is perfect." That it is...that it is.

Dear Abrazo Family,

I sit here typing through tears our joy as our new son, Rocco, sleeps next to me. Elizabeth is right, if you told me 4 days ago that I would be holding my baby on Monday, I would have never believed you. A "baby on ground" certainly throws you for a loop!

Our thanks go out to the wonderful ladies at Abrazo, who made this all possible, and especially to Angela, who has traveled back and forth to Austin, giving up her weekend and her day off, and who reassured us when we hit a bump in the road on Sunday. We also want to thank the other Yetties and to all the Abrazo families for their prayers and well wishes. And biggest thanks to R & L, Rocco's first mom and dad, for their incredibly loving and selfless act. We will thank God for them every day.

As my friend Christie just messaged me, "Everything in life happens for a reason. He was always yours. God just found a unique way to get him to you." AMEN to that!!

With love,

Nicole, Raj and baby Rocco

Be still my heart...Grace and Lydia share the same birthday! Just two years apart. What an awesome day! I love reading your story on the 3 X 5 thread and can "hear" you sharing it.

Also, congrats to Nicole, Raj, and Rocco!
