Bringing baby Matthews home

Janet Matthews Fayetteville, Georgia

Tray and I always knew that we wanted to adopt. We always planned to adopt and have biological children. After struggling with infertility I felt like we should start the adoption process but Tray was not ready yet. Then one day after church Tray said he felt that God was leading us to start the adoption process.

This process has been long with paperwork and waiting and a whole lot of praying. We are thankful that we are matched with a wonderful birth family and our little one will be here in a few short weeks!

We  appreciate everyone of you and how our family and community has  rallied around us and prayed for us during this time. We ask that first you continue to pray for us and also this sweet family that we have connected with.
