Meet the Harmans…

Daniel and Dani Harman are the most recent couple that we have had to match! They are such a great couple. They have actually known my husband for many, many years. I had the pleasure of meeting them for the 1st time this past spring. They had just moved back to the U.S. after living overseas for over 8 years. They are missionaries! They came [...]

Adoption is hard. Adoption is risky.

Adoption is hard.  Adoption is risky.   The hardest part of our jobs as adoption consultants is telling our adoptive parents the sad news that their birth family has changed their mind.   It’s kind of a catch 22.  On one hand, we so badly want what the birth mother wants, if she wants to parent, we want that for her….we aren’t in this to [...]

Isaiah Samuel

In honor of World Prematurity Day yesterday and the birthday of one of FAC's past preemies, we'd love to share the story of sweet Isaiah Samuel "D".  FAC loves this sweet family, their precious baby boy, who was once a very tiny preemie, and their incredible and inspiring story of loss, love, and redemption.  This sweet family allowed their faith to be bigger than their [...]

Beautiful Redemption…

This is the story of one of our FAC families.

Be a Voice!

I love when our families use their journey to be a positive voice for adoption, and this family has done just that!! Not only did this sweet family have their "yes" on the table to every situation, but they are now being a light and encouragement to others. Love this precious family and their constant faith in God and His perfect timing for their adoption [...]

Adoption is redemption…

I recently had a discussion on Instagram with someone that was offended that I made the statement, “I have the best job ever!”, my discussion and his offense to my statement really got me thinking…..so I am going to share those thoughts with you. Adoption is a lot of things….it is LOVE, it is hope, it is redemption, it is the gospel playing out in [...]

God is good…Part 2

Have you read Part 1?  If not, read it here. Eventually, C ended up moving to another state, which brought our visits to a screeching halt.  I can't say I was really that disappointed.  Over the next few months, the boy's case went before the judge and it was determined that our case would move to termination. I would be lying if I said I [...]

God is good…Part 1

I wonder how many posts I have written with that very same title?  No matter how many I have written before, I can promise you there are more to come, because GOD IS GOOD and that isn't going to change. I want to share a story with you.  One that has blown my socks off.  God is faithful, He hears our cries and He is [...]
