2 is better than one, right?!!

Hi Friends,
Some of you already know, but a couple of weeks ago we got a call about a girl in Indiana who is pregnant with TWIN boys. I haven't blogged about this one because it gets harder and harder to type it out and then be disappointed. We REALLY need your prayers, though!! This is still almost unbelievable to me. The birth mom, Jessica, is due with twin boys in March. She wants an open adoption, meaning pictures, emails, phone calls, and possibly meeting us. Her biggest priority is that the family go to a non-denominational Christian church. We do!! And are you ready for this? SHE IS A SINGER!! Obviously, music is very important to her so the fact that we are musical is icing on the cake! We have a letter to the birth mom in our profile, but I wrote her a specific letter so that she would know all the things we do to encourage music. Of course, I told her that we would in no way be disappointed if the boys weren't musical at all, but I know it means a lot to her to know that we will be very supportive if they are.

So...I just got off the phone with the adoption agency. We are the ONLY family that she is willing to consider! The problem is, her father wants her to parent. He works the night shift. Jessica has a 7 year old brother that she is having to raise, and her mother is deceased. She's only 17, and she is auditioning for Juilliard in New York. Raising 2 babies would be so difficult for her, and she would definitely not get into Juilliard. There are some other things in this story that I really don't want to share, but it would be terrible for the boys to grow up in that family. PLEASE, PLEASE pray that Jessica's father will change his mind. Since she's 17, he may have the right to get the boys himself. I'm not sure. They aren't speaking right now, but they are supposed to go to church together on Sunday. Since she's not due until March, this may be a roller coaster ride for us until then. Just keep us in your prayers!! I guess we'll have to have two puzzles now so buy some pieces if you haven't already! :)

Also, pray for us this afternoon. The social worker doing our home study is making the actual "home" visit at 2:30. Our house has never been so clean! She's really coming to make sure it's safe and to meet Hudson, though. I hope she's ready for a concert! I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks for keeping up with our journey!

Moving On...

I talked to the lawyer this afternoon. Everything looked like we wanted it to from a legal stand point. The lawyer called Tim, the birth father, and he told him that they had already chosen a family. We are of course disappointed, but we're so thankful that we found out now and not way into it. We got all of our medical tests done today. I have my individual interview with our social worker tomorrow morning. Things are still moving a long, and we are still excited that God has a plan for us!

Today Hudson asked me for some money. I gave him 50 cents, and he told me that he was giving it for the baby. I asked him who he was giving it to and he said, "I'm giving it to God. Will He be at our house today?". Oh, he fills my heart with joy! I'm thanking God for those little moments, and thanking Him that He WILL be at our house today and everyday through it all!

Much Love,

Lots To Report!!!

Hi Friends,

It's been a while since we've had any news, but we finally have something to share! So, we were never called about the baby in Indiana due December 8th. However, because of that situation, we have done everything to get our home study done as quickly as possible. It should be done in about 4 weeks! We're using an agency here that has a lot less requirements, and it's less expensive. We had our first home study interview on Monday. It went really well, and we left feeling a lot less overwhelmed about the process.

On our way home from the interview, I received a call from a friend about another baby. Her husband is a Christian music artist. While he was signing autographs a few weeks ago, he met a guy named Tim who said his girlfriend was pregnant, and they are planning on choosing adoption for the baby. My friend's husband told Tim that he knew a family that might be interested and got his contact information. At the time, he was talking about his family because they are wanting to adopt, but Tim doesn't know that. They had an attorney call and talk to the him about everything, but they have decided that it's not the right time for them to adopt a baby. They have let the attorney know that they aren't moving forward, but they want him to tell Tim that WE are the family that they are recommending! I spoke with the attorney today. The baby will be born in Nebraska so right now the attorney is finding out if he will be able to represent us. We're hoping to do this without an agency. I'm supposed to call on Monday to see if he will be able to do it. If so, he will call Tim and let him know about us. If not, he will give us Tim's contact information, and we will decide what to do from there. The baby is a boy due January 24th, and Nebraska has great adoption laws. Papers can be signed within 48 hours of birth, and it is irrevocable at that point!

In the midst of all of this, I have called the agency in Indiana to let them know that another couple might be considering us. They said that the birth mother that they showed our profile to has still not made a decision. The mother of the birth father does not want the baby to be adopted. The birth mother and father are both 15. The mother of the birth father is creating a lot of drama and making this all very stressful for the birth mother. The agency said that it's a really bad situation and to pray for the birth parents to choose adoption. Anything is possible, but I am very doubtful that baby will be placed with us. However, as I said before, that situation has put us in a much better place in the process than we were, and we are thankful for that!!

Of course, we are trying to not get too excited, but this does seem a little more promising than the Indiana situation. To my knowledge, the couple in Nebraska have not considered any families, yet. However, they have contacted an agency so they will probably look at some other profiles. We do have a really good recommendation, though. :) Really, God is in control, and we have faith in His plan for us! Please pray for our patience and peace right now. It's really hard to not be anxious.

We have lots of puzzle pieces left so please get one! We hope to have names on all of them! Click on the "donate" button below to buy your piece. Also, several of our friends with home businesses have been so generous in wanting to help us raise money by giving part of their proceeds to the adoption.

I will be having a Pampered Chef party next Thursday, and anyone can come. If you can't and want to order something here's the order instructions from the Pampered Chef sales director:

If you can't attend and would like to order. You can contact Andrea or you can order online at and click on order online and then type in Andrea Davis as the host and SHOP AWAY!

Another friend is a Thirty One consultant. Her website is Such cute stuff! I'm not exactly sure what the instructions are for ordering from her. Just let me know if you want something, and I will find out.

Today, a Mary Kay friend of mine said that she would give me 100% of the profits from any orders that I can get. Just go to and look at their products. Let me know if you want to order, and I will get it done!

I also have a friend who wants to do some fund raising for us through Tupperware. They have a special selection specifically for fund raising. However, I don't see how to view it online. I'll find out!

Sooooo, do all your Christmas shopping right here! :)

THANK YOU SO MUCH to those who have already supported us!! We feel so loved and blessed to have so many wonderful people in our lives.

Much Love,
