We got a call.....

We have been chosen by a birth-mom...
She is 25 years old and from Africa..Can you believe it?
She is from Nigeria, Africa and came to the U.S on a student visa for nursing school.
She got married while here and has a 3 three year old little girl.

Her name is MaryYama and her family in Africa are practicing Muslims.
She had a pre-arranged marriage waiting for her in Africa when she went back and
she decided not to go back..Now she is hated by her family and she can never return.

She is pregnant with a baby girl whom we will call Josie-Claire (Lord willing of course.)
Our social worker said she was VERY beautiful and very small. She wears a size 1..

The sad news for us is that she wants a closed adoption. With the exception of pictures.
I have so prayed about meeting her and helping her so I will continue to pray that if it's the Lord's will we will be able to meet.

She is due On October 11 but due to high blood sugar her Dr.s will take the baby one week early.

Am I excited? oh my, more than I could show you in writing. But we don't have a baby in our arms yet so I will walk cautiously and trust the Lord no matter what the out come.

I am so excited for you. We were blessed with Corban through a crisis pregnancy center in OK...We were blessed to meet the birth mother, although, four years later, she has chosen to return our contacts...still, I am glad that we were able to meet her. I pray that you can also...
still, what a blessing!

Robin, This is SO EXCITING!!!!!! I'll be praying for your family, this sweet little baby, and the birth mother. Remember our GOd is a GOd of details. He knows just the best way this must happen. Trust Him with that. Can't wait to see what God will do with all of this!
