This Changes Everything

(at least that's what we're told)

Things have been a little crazy in the Parker home lately. We wish we had time to talk to everyone, but we wanted to let you know the good news: we are "expecting" and are due in 9 days! (Sept 17th due date)!! We have met with a very sweet couple that is courageously making the decision to give their baby up for adoption, and they have chosen us to be the parents! So, Lord willing, in a little over a week we will be have a little baby…and since I'm sure you're all wondering…it's a girl! :-)  

There are still a few bridges to cross with the legal issues of adoption, and of course, the parents could change their mind, so this is not a 100% sure thing yet …BUT, we are excited to see what God is doing, and we are hopeful and trusting that He has a plan!

We'd appreciate your prayers as we continue to navigate all that needs to be done to prepare in the next week (purchase #1 was made by "Grandma and Grandpa" Kuhn on their trip out west, so we thought we'd include a pic! :-) Also please continue to pray for the birthparents: a healthy delivery, speedy recovery, and God's peace for them and for us.

We will try to keep everyone updated as things progress.  

Psalms 39:7:  “And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you.  

Romans 15:13 " May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope."

This is amazing news! Thank you for sharing so that we can all rejoice in this with you and know how to be praying for you. I wish I had clothes to lend, just gave them all to another family. But we have other things you could have if you need them. Let us know how we can serve you.
