There is a couple that goes to my dads church that has been trying to adopt for about three yeras.
I don't know the full story, but all I know is that she has known that she is not able to have children since she was very young. I am not sure if it was some sort of trauma to where she lost her uterus, or possibly just knowing she had some sort of illness preventing her from pregnancy, I'm really not sure. But despite her husband wanting children so badly, he married her anyway knowing they may never get the chance to be parents.
But at 1:30 yesterday their baby officially became theirs! They kept the entire pregnancy of the birth mom a secret from everyone because birth mom had a baby already, which she considered adoption, and kept her baby at the last minute. So naturally they were afraid she'd do that again.
I was at my dads for my brothers wedding when my step mom got the news (the new mom is just a few years older than me, and her dad is not in the picture, so she's very close to my dad) Then new mom asked if it was okay that their baby call them grandma and grandpa. To see my dads face light up when asked that was so precious. I'm glad I could be apart of all the good news!
I just had to share. It's a touching story. Now I am off to look at all the updated pictures on their FB page....
