Baby News

Things fell through with the birth mom we had been matched with last month.
It was very sad news.

The great news is that another birth mom found our profile on LDS Family Services' website.
She wants to place her baby with us! We really feel that this is an answer to our prayers.
Her name is Melissa and she is a sweet, wonderful young woman. We are amazed by her good heart and complete selflessness. We feel so honored and privledged that she chose us. God sometimes works in strange and mysterious ways, and it is a miracle that he brought us together. The baby is due in January, and will be born in Utah. We could not be more thrilled!

Thank you to all of our friends and family for their love and support through this adoption process. We can't wait for this beautiful little baby to join our family!

Hey Mandi,

My name is Michelle, I'm Melissa's older sister. She showed me your blog and has told me so many wonderful things about you and Jack. I just wanted to tell you that our whole family is so happy that she found you and that everything has fallen into place. We have been praying that this would all work out. I hope it is okay if I follow your blog :D

I just love the two of you, and you are so right God does work in mysterious ways. The lord chooses what is best for us, and it is up to us on how we react to things even when they are so hard to understand why it is happening. It is so wonderful to see the patients and understanding the two of you have. We miss you already and are always thinking of you and praying for you. This baby is truly a blessing!!! As all babies are! Keep your head up!
