1: We dedicate this book to the expectant mother whose journey has been blessed by the Lord. We pray you strength and courage in the Lord understanding that He will be with you every step of the way. We hope that one day we will get the opportunity to hear your story. As you read, we hope that our story truly gives you comfort and a piece of mind, knowing that your angel will be surrounded with love. | Dedication
2: Dear Expectant Mother: Thank you for taking the time to view our profile. We cannot begin to imagine how difficult this decision is for you. You could have done many things, but you chose to be selfless; which makes you an honorable, amazing woman. Although we haven't met you, we would like for you to know that you are constantly in our prayers because of the courageous decision you have made. We pray that the Lord will be with you in every step of your journey. Though we have received many blessings in our lives, the one blessing we are still hoping and waiting for is the wonderful blessing of a child. We met nine years ago and knew that our relationship was ordained by God. We dream of the day when we can hear little piddle paddles and laughter throughout our home. We count each day together as a blessing from the Lord. We seek Him in all aspects of our lives. We are strong believers in Psalm 37:4 "Delight thyself also in the Lord; and shall give thee the Desires of thine Heart". Our faith in God is very strong and important. We attend church on a regular basis. Our souls are anchored in the Lord. We plan to introduce our child to Christ at a very early age and watch them grow in the Lord. We have very strong and devoted parents. Our parents are God fearing. They provided us with the things we needed and some of the things we wanted. Both of our parents are grandparents, and love their grandchildren. We are always surrounded by love and support with our families.
3: Between the two of us, we have several sisters, brothers, nieces, and nephews who bring such joy and support to our lives. Even though we are not parents, we have had plenty of practice in that area with our nieces and nephews such as babysitting, some have even lived with us, diaper changing, keeping them entertained, and showering them with plenty of love. Our friends are very supportive of us in God's calling for us to adopt. They have been there for us to offer prayer, advice, and support. We pray that one day our child will have the opportunity to play with our friends' children. A child is a magnificent gift from God and we pray that one day we will be blessed with an angel to shower with love. Our continued prayers are with you as you make the most important decision of your life. Thank you again for allowing us to share our story. Julius and Cassandra
