We have learned so much from this experience. The Act of Love staff is amazing! We can’t say that enough. They helped us to put all of our ducks in a row for application approval and navigate the process of showing our profile. The two beautiful caseworkers who accompanied us on our trip of a lifetime to pick up our sweetheart were such a support and blessing to us. We have seen firsthand what it means to sacrifice. Our little boy’s birth mom is gracious, warm, beautiful and selfless. She is a dear part of our family and we love her beyond words. She gave us a most precious gift. Our little boy is the greatest blessing we have ever received! We have learned a lot about ourselves. We have learned that we are stronger than we think we are and to trust in God and his plan for our lives (even when it doesn’t seem to match our plan.) We have learned that adoption is one of the most spiritual experiences (whatever your religion) a person will ever have. We are truly blessed and thankful to everyone who has helped us along the way.
