Praise God!

This photo was taken about 10 minutes after we found out we were chosen by a birth mom to be the adoptive parents of TWIN GIRLS! Our expressions make me laugh because Glen looks happy-go-lucky and I'm a cross between crying and smiling so much my face might crack! :) The scrapbooker in me had to take a photo to preserve this moment in our lives. We met with our birth mom on Saturday and she told us at that time that we were the family she had chosen. The twins are due on May 8th. We were also invited to go with to her next ultrasound appointment on Monday. It's been a few days now since we heard the news and Glen and I are both still in a daze. :)

Friends, our God is so good to us! We have been praying and praying faithfully for almost five years that we would have a child and God has blessed us beyond anything we can comprehend. Ephesians 3:20 says "Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think." There are so many stories we could share with you about how God has orchestrated everything to this moment. We're continuing to trust His plan for us and would ask for your prayers that everything goes smoothly. Our birth mom is the most amazing woman who is also a believer in Christ. We would also ask that you pray for her as this is difficult for her emotionally.

Thank you for letting us share our exciting news with you! :)

Glen & Jill
