It’s a classic story really, boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, boy and girl get married and dream of a future with a big family and lots of kids! But girl has issues and they find out that she may never be able to have a baby. So they pray and cry and pray and cry….and years go by. Finally one day their prayers are answered and they are able to adopt a beautiful teenie tiny 3 lb brown baby girl!! They are enchanted with her and parenthood and grateful to God for their special miracle baby! Then 2 years later they feel beyond blessed to adopt another beautiful precious baby girl with the glossiest black ringlets! They are overflowing with gratitude and wonder at the little family the Lord has given them! They are content, they are in debt, but their babies are worth it of course!! Then a few more years go by and they remember how much they dreamt of a big family and a dinner table full of little ones to cherish, & boy and girl hear about a wonderful foundation called Sacred Selections! Could it be true? Can such a thing exist? They are already so blessed with 2, would anyone consider them for more children? Girl nervously calls Dana, and with one phone call she feels she has made a lifelong connection with a sister who lives far far away!
One day the girl received a call–a baby boy is due to be born soon, but there are complications….girl calls boy, boy says God means for us to have this child, He will help us and we will not hesitate. The little baby boy is born in a NICU 3000 miles away….he has Down Syndrome and his esophagus is not attached to his stomach. He is fragile, he will need surgery(ies), he will need a feeding tube. For 5 months boy and girl fly 3000 miles to hold their baby boy and watch him struggle to thrive, but thrive he does and at 5 months old with the love, prayers and support of the dear sister and Sacred Selections they joyfully get their baby boy transported home!! Months go by and life is busy for the boy and girl. Baby boy is doing very well and they again hear the Lord reminding them of their dream for a big family! But how can they expect more? Once again dear sister calls and Sacred Selections lends their support once again! Unbeleivable, Amazing, Grateful beyond words that people will help this humble boy and girl in their quest to raise a big family in the nurture and admonition of the LORD. So with just over 2 weeks notice, boy and girl welcome another baby boy into their arms to love and to cherish and to raise up to know God and glorify Him! This baby boy was the first born close to them, so they got to hold this precious son at only 1 hour old, put into their arms by his sweet birthmother herself. Such an incredible moment and memory for the boy and girl!!
Without the blessings of the Lord and the generosity of people who donate to Sacred Selections, this boy and girl would never have been able to have the dinner table full of little ones that they always dreamed of! Thank you to each and every one of you! And we remember you every night in our prayers when we kiss our little ones soft heads and watch with wonder as they grow and learn everyday!
