Bringing Home Baby King

Rachel King
Rachel King Raymond, Mississippi

Hey friends!

First, Wesley and I want to tell each of you who are supporting us through our adoption journey how thankful we are. We know that we are where we are today because of the prayers and support from you all. God is good and has placed so many loving people in our lives.

We knew we wanted a family and began talking about future plans shortly after getting married in August 2014. After a year of enjoying being newly married, we knew we wanted to start growing our family. After a year of not being able to get pregnant, Rachel’s doctor scheduled a surgery to see if there was something “wrong.” She also began taking medication to help but another year goes by.

In January 2016, we were referred to a fertility doctor. He could not find anything “wrong” either. We tried three procedures and multiple months of more medications but the procedures failed.

We began to pray that God would lead us. We knew He had placed the desire in our hearts to have a family for a reason but we needed to take some time to pray and wait.

In October 2018, we submitted adoption paperwork with Faithful Adoption Consultants. It just felt right! In April 2019, we were active and anxiously waiting to be matched with our birth mother. On May 23, 2019, we received the phone call we have been waiting for. We are matched!! Our sweet baby is due in November 2019.

God is so good and so faithful! We’re so ready meet this sweet baby of ours!
