Happy 2nd Birthday, Sweet Lucie!

It's been two years. Two years ago, the birthmother we had been matched with called us to let us know that she was going to the hospital.  John and I drove as fast as we could, hoping we would make it in time for the arrival of the baby we hoped to adopt. The hospital was seven hours away, and the birthmother was dilating fast! An hour before we arrived, she texted that she had begun to push. But when we finally arrived that morning, she was about to be wheeled in for a C-section, because the baby was stuck. We like to think that Lucie waited for us!  Minus a few bumps during the week, it all worked out through much prayer and even more miracles along the way. We are so humbled and grateful to be the parents of Lucie. We are so blessed to be on this adoption journey and to forever be connected to some very special people. Tomorrow, we celebrate Lucie's 2nd year of life, and we will always, always remember two teenagers who made the most courageous and selfless decision of their lives.
