God’s Amazing Plan

Our adoption story is one we wasn’t looking for, or even had on the radar.

BUT GOD HAD IT ON THE RADAR, AND HE HAD A BEAUTIFUL PLAN!

We have 3 children

Matthew 16

My husband Micah is a full time Church of God pastor..

Micah and I have never been licensed Foster Parents. But we have had 22 children in our home over the past 25 years of marriage..

Micah says that there is something over my head that says please let me help you with your children.

10 years ago we met a young couple, and helped them with their baby for 3 years, and 2 months.  This built a lasting relationship.

Fast forward from 2015-2021

November 2, 2021 we got a call from DCFS asking us to help with this same little girl who was now 8 and if we could take any of her 5 siblings that lived in the home.

We took the little girl, and the baby 5 months.

We couldn’t find the mother of the little girl. But one day I saw her in the hospital, and said listen I have your child! We have a sweet relationship with the mother, and she would give me a hug when we would see each other in town, thanking us for helping her through the years.

Well fast forward to April 2022, when she reaches out to me, to ask us to take, and adopt her unborn child.

We honestly didn’t think she meant it, but we did talk about it that day.

She reached out again the next day, and said she was really serious, she knew how much we would love this baby.  And she really wanted us to have it.

Of course we said yes!

We truly needed the Lord to give us a promise that we was doing the right thing.

I begin to look in the Word of God, and immediately I came to this scripture,

Isaiah 9:6

For into us a child is born, unto us a son is given……..

The baby is a boy!

I knew that this scripture was talking about Jesus, but God used it to let us know that He was directing, giving us such a wonderful blessing, and a beautiful addition to our family.

Hudson Andrew Minnich was born on August 2, 2022.

So here we are.,,,❤️
