When I said hello, I realized it was our caseworker, and she was happy. She said that Miles & I and another couple had been selected by a birth couple to be interviewed as potential parents of their baby. The caseworker said, "Are you interested?" AM I INTERESTED!!?!?!? YES!!! She laughed and said, "There is one more thing you might want to know before you say yes." I gulped. Is the baby sick? She said, "They are having twins." I'm not sure what really happened next. I almost dropped the phone. I was completely overwhelmed. Can we handle twins? Is this a good idea? What should I do? I heard myself saying, "Yes, but let me call my husband first to be certain he is on the same page." I asked how far along the mother was, and she said, "Well . . . she is scheduled to have a C-section on June 19." Uh . . . that is 3 weeks away. I told her I would call her back after I spoke with Miles. When I called Miles, I told him everything I knew except the fact that the mother was having twins. I said, "You should probably sit down. There is one more thing that she told me. She is having twins." Miles' response was, "Well . . . I figured we would probably adopt more than one anyway!" I called her back, and told her we were up for this, and she said she would call me in the morning with the interview time.
Who knew God would have the perfect car, at a good price, and my car would sell so quickly to a dear friend who knows this process oh so well. She and her husband show back up at my house with the check, and I tell them about my phone call. It was so nice to have them here just after the call came. I had 4 people inquiring about that car, but God knew I needed her. They prayed with me because I was completely overwhelmed. One was going to be adjustment enough, but two?
Please pray with us as we have our interview with this couple on Wednesday. Pray that the couple would choose the other couple if we aren't to have these children. Pray for this couple, the other couple being interviewed, us, and those two babies . . . a boy and a girl. Pray for wisdom and strength for all involved. This is going to be an emotional and stressful process regardless of the outcome, but we are in awe of God's sovereignty!
