About the campaign
Our beautiful 8-year-old Ava was adopted in 2008, and we met our 8-month-old Crawford’s birth mother last year. We swiftly formed a relationship with her and have become supportive resources for each other over the past year. In May 2017, we finalized the adoption of our love bug Crawford. What a blessing he has been! As our family celebrated that evening, we had no way of knowing what the next day would bring.
Early the next morning we received a call from Crawford’s birth mother. She was a few months into a planned pregnancy, and while she originally was going to keep the baby, some very unfortunate circumstances left her in a position that would prevent her from doing so. In her heart she wanted her baby to go to our family.
We had only been out of the adoption process for less than twenty-four hours! Matthew and I wanted to continue to grow our family – though we had not planned on it being quite so soon – but God works in amazing ways. After some discussions and prayers with loved ones, we jumped at this incredible blessing.
Our baby girl will be born in Salt Lake City, Utah in October, just as her genetic brother Crawford was last year. We know we can continue to be the hands and feet of God throughout this process and are thrilled that we are able to share our story and touch the lives of others along the way! Your prayers and support mean so much to us as we embark on this wonderful, unexpected journey. We love all of you!
