‘We have a 3-week-old girl.’ Little hope, we said yes on Thursday. By Friday, I had tears in my eyes. ‘We have a daughter, Kristen. We have a daughter!’: Couple miraculously adopt daughter on 5-year anniversary of miscarried angel baby

“Our adoption lawyer informed us our final hearing would be August 26, 2021. At the time, I didn’t realize the significance of that date, until Facebook reminded me in my memories of what happened 5 years earlier: a plea for prayer for Elijah, our Elijah. I stopped, realizing how God had set into motion something beyond what I had even imagined.”

‘Is he a drug baby?’ I heard the whispers. ‘You’re making a huge mistake.’: Southern woman adopts African American child in ‘little town known for racial divides,’ aims to break stigmas

“On a holiday weekend, we received a call. ‘A baby boy is in the hospital and needs a home.’ I was scared to say yes. Just 3 hours later, a car pulled in our driveway with a 6-pound, 3-day old, baby boy. Time stood still. She handed him to me with two Walmart bags of random items, some paperwork and wished us well. We had no idea what the future would hold. Everything about this decision looked crazy to most people – even us.”
