We started looking into adoption and searching for an adoption agency one October, by the next October we had brought home our baby girl! It took us six months to decide on an adoption agency. We contacted agencies from coast to coast and spent a lot of time speaking with the people that worked at them. From the first time we contacted A Act of Love there was just something about the people that really touched us. When we finally made our decision it was soon apparent to us that we had picked the right adoption agency. Everyone was so wonderful to work with and helped us with each step of our journey. I am sure Jeri got tired of hearing from us nearly every day! We finally finished all our paperwork and received our call letting us know we had been approved. Two weeks later we got a call, telling us to get ready…a birthmother in our own state had chosen us! We were so excited, but wait there was more…she was already in labor and she only lived a couple of hours away from us. We were going to meet our baby girl the next day. We met the next day and before our baby girl was 24 hours old we were holding her in our arms. I truly believe God brought our family together, but I know that he had to have A Act of Love’s help! Our baby girl turned 5 this year. She is the most amazing little person and has made our lives complete.
