Y’all, I can’t even believe that I am typing these words, but WE ARE ADOPTING!
We’ve been hoping to adopt for a long (long, long!) time. And we have been chosen by a birth mama to adopt her baby girl (due in June)!
I cannot even tell you the rejoicing (and picture painting, and dress making, and nursery readying) that is happening in the Gentry house right now!
The kids have been praying every day for God to bring us the right brother or sister since this time last year, and “over the moon” doesn’t even really touch their excitement level.
As you probably imagine, this adoption journey is hard, and it is much more difficult to see the birth mom side up close than I’d guessed. We just adore her and this journey is difficult and watching it be so hard is the worst. Adoption is truly such a roller coaster- hard and good mixed together in the craziest way.
Even with the crazy journey, and the hard parts, this news has made our year. We are beyond thrilled to be a family of five and cannot stop praising God for this extravagant blessing.
