matched

Miracles happen, sometimes when you least expect them. We are so excited to announce that we are matched with a great couple who are expecting a precious baby boy due to arrive in April!

We are waiting, full of hope, for this little one to come fill our home with laughter (and crying, let's be honest) and teach us again how the heart can grow and grow to encompass more love than we thought possible. We love this baby's family already and admire them so much for the serious and intentional decision they are making, and the sweet way they have invited us to share this time before baby is born. We are excited to have them in our lives as we all journey together, united in our commitment to do what is best for this baby boy.

With baby's due date in April, we are just a few short weeks from this next adventure and because this adoption has come so soon after our failed adoption, we will pay our last bill from January this week and start paying our new bills next week. While it would be easy to feel overwhelmed, we know God has provision!  Joe has been blessed with extra flights this month, and we have been saving all we can.  Faith and trust have been our guiding themes and in the end, our story will be beautiful. The last few months have been a roller coaster and we are back on the ascent. Keep your arms and legs inside the car, this is going to be a crazy ride. 




On a different note, we have had so many people with us on this journey and we want to recognize all of you with a special piece of art in baby's nursery. This poster (^right up there^) is hanging above the crib and we hope to see it covered in the names of family and friends who have been walking this redemption road with us. This little one is so, so cherished and loved and we want a piece of art that shows that. If you have been praying for us, hoping for the best for our family, or sending us your good wishes and thoughts, let me know! Post a comment here or on Facebook and I'll get your name up there. 

My mom has also graciously organized an online fundraiser through YouCaring to help us offset some of our adoption costs. If you are interested in participating, follow this link and it will give you all the details: http://www.youcaring.org/gecseyfamilyadoption

Thank you all for your love and support, especially in these last few weeks! Every kind word, every prayer, every time you shared our pain or expressed your hopes for our future has kept us moving forward and fighting for our family to grow. We feel humbled and so immensely blessed to be surrounded by such a wonderful community!
