Blessed by Adoption

I just received this letter and photo from adoptive couple Brent & Lindsay, who adopted their son Lucas through Lifetime Adoption and wanted to share it with you today:

"We hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season with a Merry Christmas and looking forward to a wonderful new year!  We feel so blessed with our adoption of Lucas.  He has been a wonderful baby and a delight to have.  It is hard to believe it has been almost six months since we were able to bring him home! We were so blessed by Lucas's birthmother to be able to be at the hospital for his birth.  We were not able to be in the room during the birth, but she had the hospital set us up in the next room, and they brought Lucas directly to us.

It was an amazing experience to be able to be a part of his birth and have pictures from the beginning.  We still have a good relationship with Lucas's birthmother, and have an open line of communication with her.  We really couldn't have asked for a better experience, and we know that the Lord was truly working in our lives to have allowed everything to have gone so smoothly.  On Lucas' four month birthday, we had his finalization hearing, and the judge signed the final documents needed for Lucas to finally be officially our son.  We had a big day to celebrate!

Lucas enjoyed his first Christmas, and he received many presents from family and friends.  He enjoyed playing with his cousin, Parker, who is only six weeks older.  Lucas is trying to crawl, but he hasn't quite gotten the hang of it yet.  He is so expressive and such a happy baby!  He also sleeps extremely well at night, and when he wakes up in the morning, he is generally all smiles.  We can't express to all of you how much we truly appreciate all your assistance and efforts to help us during our adoption process.  We were very fortunate to have a relatively short wait, and our prayers are with all those who are currently waiting to bring home their amazing bundle of joy.  We know the Lord meant for Lucas to be in our family, and we thank Him every day for the blessing.  Thank you all for your hard work. We wouldn't be here without you!

With much appreciation,
Lindsay and Brent"
