My adopted son

In March of 2016, my wife and I began the process of adopting a child. After many leads, meetings, potential placements, missed encounters, we considered giving up, as it had been almost 2 years. Of course, a few days later we were contacted by an agency looking to adopt a child, one that we were very serious in pursuing weeks earlier, and were told had been matched with a different family. This was the day before thanksgiving. Fast forward three weeks, 4 states away, a time zone, and a season and here we are, officially the adopted parents of Kevin. As I wait here in our home state, my wife is still out east and we could really use prayer right now. We would all love for her to be home for christmas. Our attorney laughed when we asked if my wife and the child would be able to come home this week, as she said she had over 30 adoption hearings in the next 3 days. I know that God is bigger than a full docket, an impossible bureaucracy, and the boogeyman, and that anything is possible. So please pray. My wife's birthday is also Christmas eve, so this would truly be a miracle, but I have an incredible faith that this can be finalized this week so we can all be together for the holidays.

My goodness, what an incredible adventure! I will pray for God's perfect plan for you and your wife, and for little Kevin.

Thanks for praying. We still don't have an answer. Right now the only thing holding up the approval is my state, Illinois, which is regularly considered the worst at pretty much anything a state is responsible for. Basically if someone looks at the file tomorrow and decides that there is no missing information, then it's done. But we don't know if that will happen.

Well, they're home! We found out at about 3pm yesterday that he could come home, and I flew out late last night and we drove from New Jersey to Illinois. Phew. Exhausted. This story is just amazing.
