I never knew how this would come about, but now I am oh so grateful. We have been matched with a birthmom. She is so nice, we were able to speak with her over the phone. We are thrilled about adopting and are even more excited that the baby BOY is due December 23!!!
Upon speaking to the birthmom she made it clear that she wanted the baby to be named Jeremiah- because that was a Biblical name and we were thrilled with that idea quoting Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
and Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."
Let me just say that the middle name is going to honor the birthmom and be representative of a portion of her name. And so his full name will be Jeremiah Cole Doss. We are sooo pumped. We still have lots of details to work out. And of course there is a chance that this could fall through. Please join us in prayer that everything moves forward smoothly.
*We've prayed for 6 years to have a child and I don't feel like the words I have give justice to the joy in our hearts. We are excited beyond measure and are praising the Lord! :)
