Our Story
Donors (113)
We've been praying about adoption for 3 years, and in Jan 2015 we began to take active steps toward finding the right avenue for our family. We were eventually led to Abba Adoptions (a private Christian adoption agency in Benton, AR).

We received a call on Wed, June 17th, from Kandi Cox at Abba Adoptions asking how close we were to finishing our application and asking if she could share a story with us. Kandi proceeded to tell us about a birth mother that has been with Abba since Feb and is due Sept 21 with a little girl that needed a family. After talking with Abba and praying we told them on Friday, the 19th, that we were interested in being the family for this baby girl and submitted our application.

The Abba case worker met with the birth mom and birth dad at lunch on Tues, the 23rd to share our letter and pictures with them and see if they felt good about us being the family to receive their baby girl. The birth mom got there before the birth father, and the case worker showed her the pictures of us. The birth mom immediately started crying and said that she knew us. The case worker was confused and inquired how she knew us. The birth mom told her that she had a dream right before she found out she was pregnant where she saw us in the dream. She said it was very vivid and stood out more than other dreams. She woke up crying and told the birth father about it. She just knew that we would be important in her life, but she had no clue what that meant.

Needless to say, we are thrilled to welcome our baby girl in Sept and are in awe of how clearly God has shown His sovereignty and faithfulness through this adoption journey.
