We Heard from the Agency Today

We received an e-mail from our coordinator today. The genetic family who has had our profile has decided not to choose our family for their embryos. The family originally thought they wanted to choose a family with children currently, but through prayer, decided that although they enjoyed meeting our family through pictures and our written profile, we were not the family they were looking for after all.

Obviously, it was not the e-mail we were wanting to see, but we know that God has already chosen the family for us and this will all be revealed in His timing : ) We just want to keep you updated as you continue to follow our journey!

"Those who trust in the Lord are like Mt. Zion,
which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
So the Lord surrounds His people
From this time forth and forever." Psalm 125: 1,2


  1. I am sorry to hear that this one did not work out, but you are right, the right family is out there. Praying for you as you wait.

  2. Dearest Shannon, I'm so sorry. I can only imagine how hard that news was to hear. I pray the Lord will comfort you and open the perfect door for adoption very soon!

    I love you!

  3. I'm so sorry, but I love your strong faith and positive outlook ~ and I too believe the right match is awaiting your family!!

    Thinking of you!!

  4. I know this was not the news you wanted to hear, but you're right - God has already chosen your children. Praying He'll match you with them to very soon! :)

  5. You have a great outlook! Stay positive and trust God's timing. Praying for you!

  6. I am SO SORRY, Shannon!

    I know that this is heartbreaking, but, when you do get your perfect match, you will be GLAD that this one didn't work out. It will all make sense. I know that the waiting is the hardest part of this process. Waiting for a match, waiting for contracts to get signed, waiting for shipment, waiting to start your meds...the TWO WEEK WAIT! But, it'll be worth it, I am sure of that!

    I added you to the home page of my blog, by the way!

  7. I'm sorry the news wasn't what you had hoped for, but praising God that you are being still and patient, knowing He has already picked the right match for your family and that He will reveal this on His terms.

  8. oh bummer! i am sure that must have been hard, even though you know the timing isn't right just yet! praying that you will be matched with the child that is perfect for your family!


We love to hear from you! Please leave us a comment or ask a question.
