To Your Name...

The words in our last post from the song "Thank You" became even more relevant to us in the last week - 


To Your name we give all the glory
To Your name we give all the praise
You're alive
Our God everlasting
So let Your face shine on us


You see, when we wrote that post about being thankful and waiting on His perfect timing, He was already working in the heart of a birth mother. 


So, we are excited, thankful, humbled, and full of joy to announce that she chose us.


We will be parents to a little baby in May through the miracle of adoption!
