Waiting for "The call"
We are Chad and Christina and we live in the lower mainland of BC. First off, we are so thankful to have received this grant from ABBA Canada. God has provided for us in so many ways along this journey and it’s very encouraging to receive this grant and see once again how he meets our every need. To us, this is confirmation that adoption is the right choice to grow our family. We have been married for 7 years and are in the process of adopting our first child. Adoption was not always what we had in mind when we got married and a few years later when we decided to start trying for a baby. Our journey through infertility was incredibly difficult and painful, but it was through those struggles that God revealed his plan for us to adopt. We tried infertility treatments for almost a year but it became clear pretty quickly that adoption was God’s plan for us. We applied to adopt in November 2017 and at the end of May 2018 we received the final approvals. We are now eagerly waiting to receive “the call” about our baby. We have been approved to adopt locally in BC through private agency and are waiting to be matched with a birth mom. The process has gone fairly quickly so far and now we’re trying to be patient and trust in God’s perfect timing as we don’t know how long the wait will be.
