From the moment we reached out to Act of Love in May of 2012, we could feel their warmth and genuine concern for us. We began in their Outreach Program. Our profile was shown almost immediately, once we were approved (in the Outreach Program.) It was a new experience for us and was an emotional roller coaster. By the first part of June, we knew that this was the agency where we would find our son or daughter and so we made the leap to their full program. By the middle of July of 2012 we had been matched with a birth mother who was due with a baby girl in October 2012. At that time, we were so excited to be chosen, but we knew in our hearts that it didn’t feel right. One week later, we were told the birth mother had changed her mind. While we were sad, we then understood the reasons for our feelings prior. It was not the right time. It was not the right baby. We buckled down and began to have our profile shown to potential mothers while trying to stay positive. In the middle of August, we got a text from our caseworker telling us about an urgent situation for a baby boy who was to be born about a week later. The minute we received the text, before we had even been shown, we knew this was our little boy! We have been told that our sweet birth mother also knew immediately when she was shown our profile that we were the parents! We waited for close to two weeks before he was born and we traveled to be with our baby and meet his wonderful family.
