      Aww so fun! We were so blessed with a quick process. I haven’t gotten the chance to blog about it yet (wonder why!) but our first match actually changed her mind. We got that call on Thursday and we got the call about a different birth family and our sweet boy on Monday!

      Adoption is a roller coaster for sure! It goes from 60 mph to 0 to 60 mph to 0 to 100 mph! It’s such a blessing though. Hopeful your process will be smooth and your baby will come home soon!!

      • Seasonsgirl says:

        Oh I hope our process is as fast and not as bumpy… we don’t usually have good luck with things, but know if it is the Lords will it will happen :) I look forward to reading the posts about your process… I know you have a lot on your plate now :)

    He is adorable!!! oh my goodness. SO happy for you guys. I can’t wait to read the rest of the story….sounds like God was at work until the last minute. As always :) Enjoy snuggling your sweet boy!!

  10. Congratulations!! So happy (and unexpected) to read this! Can’t wait to read the whole story, but I’ll try to be patient as you’re arms are finally full. :)

    • jackielopina says:

      Thank you so much! We are SO thrilled!

      And I know it’s easy for me to say because I just crossed over to the other side, but I hope you know I’m coming from years of sorrow and sadness in infertility — finally having your baby in your arms makes all the difficulties seem to melt away. It’s totally worth it. I know it’s hard to hold on hope but just know one day when you have a baby in your womb or your arms all this trying will be worth it. God is so good. Hold fast!

  11. Cheryl says:

    Congratulations!! I am so thrilled for you! Praying for all of you, as you transition!

  12. Christy Connell says:

  13. Katie says:
