On June 20, 2014 we got a call for a child in need of care. She was only four days old. At the time we weren’t even on the list of available foster parents but everyone had passed on her. They called us because they knew this is what we wanted, a baby. And so we took her into our home and into our hearts. Never knowing how long she would be with us we treasured every minute.
There were good times and bad times. Times of joy and times of panic. But in the end joy overcame panic and more times were good rather than bad. We began to see the light at the end of this very long tunnel. We began to understand that this is God’s plan for us. And now at last this joyous day is here.
So it is with great joy that Jamie and I announce the adoption of our daughter: Natalie Ann Bienvenu.
