Amy and I have been working on a domestic adoption for the past year and a half, and I'm excited to report we have a match with a birth-mother in Oklahoma City.
Due date is late April / early May, so once labor starts we're going to fly out there, hopefully be there for the birth, be in the state for about a week while the paperwork is finalized, and then be able to come home with a newborn baby.
It is a boy (race: African-American) and we are naming him Asher. We have been told that for this particular birth-mother there is a higher than average risk for medical complications, so we are holding our breath and praying for a healthy child.
We are thankful to God for the opportunity and thankful for an extended network of family and friends to share this good news with! I’ll share more tomorrow.
