Last week ended much different than it started. On Tuesday, November 1st, we learned about an opportunity to show our adoption profile book to a birth mom who would be picking a home for her baby. Then on Thursday, November 3rd, God said it is our turn.
A little after 11am on Thursday morning we got a call from our social worker asking if we were ready for a road trip and with an emphatic “YES” we grabbed a car seat, and loaded diaper bag and headed down to Little Rock just 45 minutes later. The 3 hour drive was full of excitement, anticipation, questions of what he may look like, and pinching ourselves to see if this was actually happening.
We arrived at the Bethany Christian Services office in Little Rock, Arkansas around 3:15 and just moments later we met the son we have been praying for, yearning for, and preparing for. The son whom the Lord has set aside for US, he was born to be ours, all these years waiting and trying for a child and God knew all along that this sweet baby boy was coming, at the perfect time, in the most perfect way!
Our sweet baby boy is the bravest, sweetest, cutest, most chill baby! His little 2 month old life has held a lot of uncertainty for him, but God knew exactly what He was doing. He was born August 29, just 11 days after our failed adoption. And he entered our lives on November 3rd needing TLC that only the right parents can give him. We loved on, kissed, cradled, cared for, and loved him every minute of the 5 day wait period when his mom could change her mind. Then at 4:30 on Tuesday, November 8th, he became unofficially officially ours!
This afternoon we went to court to hear the judge decree what God knew all along, that Bridger James is our son and we get to love and care for him FORVER!
So without further ado…. we would like to introduce you to BRIDGER JAMES SIRECI! Our Son!
