I wanted to update everyone, the client that I have been asking you to pray for FINALLY received their precious baby boy!! This client has become a very close friend. We have been so blessed to work with them, and to walk through this very emotional journey with them. Emily and Daniel have been working with us since last year!!! In the past 5 1/2 months, they have matched 5 times. They are the only client that we have had that has a failed match, and they had it happen 5 times! UGH!!!! On the 3rd BM they were matched with, they actually got to pick up their precious baby and care for him for 9 days, but then the BM changed her mind, and they had to give him back. We have seen them in one of the hardest moments of their lives, and it was amazing to watch their faith get them through it! We met them in person for the very first time, minutes after they returned baby Jeremiah to his BM. I am still in awe of their strength!! I can't imagine going through everything they have been through! Their faith has been unwavering, and such a testimony to Emory and I!!! So glad that the Lord allowed us to meet, and for us to walk through this with them!
The Lord answered their prayers yesterday afternoon. They picked up their precious baby boy...

He is absolutely beautiful!!! Please continue to pray for them as they adjust to being a family of 3....PLease continue to pray for their BM, Emily and Daniel's greatest joy, is this precious BM's greatest sorrow!! Pray that the Lord used Emily and Daniel in a way that would continue to minister to her!!! Also, please pray for them everyday for the next 30 days....in their state, they can finalize their adoption on the 31st day, I know after losing Jeremiah, Emily won't breathe easy until that day! Pray that she can enjoy every moment between now and then, and that the Lord would continue to protect them and this precious new addition!!!
