We are going to have a girl! On Monday, Sarah had the chance to spend sometime with our birthmother and learned that we are having a baby girl. We were also give an envelope full of ultrasound pictures. I even think she looks a little like me.
If you have been doing the math, you know that we are very near the expected birth time. At first we were told the baby would come before now but several weeks ago we learned that she was due a few weeks later. We are getting close to game time. Any day now we expect to get a call from our adoption agency letting us know that Baby Sloan has arrived. Please continue to pray for our little baby girl, her birthmother and for our growing family.
In other news, we are excited to announce that we have raised all the money we need to complete our adoption- over $18,000. Sarah and I are astounded at the kindness we have been shown by many of you. Weekly we see monetary gifts come from unexpected places and from the people we least expect. Many of you gave extraordinary amounts and we are still in shock at your generosity.
It’s no secret that this has been a hard season for our family but it is evident that the tide is turning. Thank you for walking with us through our season of suffering and now thank you for your companionship in this new season of joy.
Keep your eyes and ears open. Baby Sloan is coming soon!
