Here’s a sweet email we recently received from a Christian adoptive couple, Nicholas and Kristin:

“Hi Patty,family photos

We’re thrilled to give you an update on our family. At the beginning of the month, we finalized our adoption of Gabriel! Many friends and family came to the hearing and we celebrated afterwards with a big BBQ in our backyard.

We’ve been so blessed these past five months with our sweet guy. He is active and inquisitive, constantly smiling and on the move. We know that God worked out every detail of this adoption from start to finish. We feel honored to be chosen by the Lord and Gabriel’s birth mother to parent our son.

The waiting was a challenge–but it prepared us to never take a moment of this experience called parenthood for granted. He’s growing so fast, and it’s hard to believe that six months ago we had no idea how drastically our life would soon change for the better.

We appreciate all that Lifetime did to support us in our time of waiting, and also for introducing us to the amazing young woman who changed our world forever by choosing us to parent Gabriel. Thank you!

Kristin and Nicholas”
