Blessed with a Baby Boy!

Katie Nelson Mobile, Alabama

Hello! We are the Nelsons and we just received great news! After 4.5 years of waiting and praying, homestudies and paperwork, ups and downs, we have been matched with a baby boy. We will be traveling to South Florida on Monday, April 8th to meet our new son. We are beyond excited and still can’t believe this is happening!!!

We have felt called to adopt for many years now. We haven’t known how God was going to write our story, and have wondered recently if there would be an end to our journey, but he has amazed us with this recent news! This particular baby boy was born on March 15th out of a very difficult circumstance and parenting wasn’t an option for the birth mother. As we grow our family, we consider it a priviledge to provide a safe and loving home for this precious baby in need and offer support for the birth mom as well.

 We would love to invite any that are interested and able to join us in helping bring our son home. We appreciate every bit of help, no mater how small. Thank you all for praying and supporting us and for walking with us through this long and often difficult journey!
