Todd and Meredith
A blog about the love and joy that came to us through adoption!

We look forward to working with you and enriching your lives with the miracle of adoption!

So I am going to write this post and then save it but not publish it and you will soon read why...

Tonight I was laying around watching my favorite show Grey's Anatomy and Meredith, on the show, was delivering babies and all I could think was "man I cannot wait to hold my own child!" So before going to bed I decided to check my personal e-mail one more time...

I was scared and nervous when I saw an e-mail from Angel Adoption but it said, "I would like to formally extend an invitation to you to join Angel Adoption in the month of October; I feel that you would be an asset to our program."

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We were accepted, 1 of 6 couples accepted this month to start the process with Angel! I could not be more pleased, I can't say "we couldn't be more pleased" because Todd is sleeping. Todd works the night shift and so sleeps at different times then me; I was tempted to wake him up and share with him but then if he is not awake enough he might not be excited enough or even remember what I am saying so I am having to wait to tell him.

Therefore I won't publish this blog until after I tell him but now it is 11:30 pm and I am wide awake, thinking and praying and over excited to share with my husband and then my family and my friends the good news that we will be beginning our adoption process formally!

To my future child: I pray for you and I don't know you. I love you and I may not meet you for a while. I long to bring you to my home and introduce you to our crazy dog and watch you grow into a child of God. You are being formed now in the image of God and I can't wait to see what creative things He makes you look like and be! God is a God who will always be there for you and I can't wait to share His amazing love with you! You are a blessing and a treasure!

One of those things I am so not good at!

When I was maybe 15, I was involved in many things such as Sunday School, church, youth group, etc. and someone smart said just go to God in prayer and ask for what you want. I don't know who it was or what I was thinking because I remember pondering the idea and really thinking about what I wanted. I don't remember praying for a new car or better grades; no I prayed for patience!

What was I thinking!? Since then I have seen God try to show me the way to have patience, the way to be content in waiting with Him for the answer. Maybe someday I will perfect this waiting thing or maybe when I get to heaven God and I can talk about all the times I tried to ask for that prayer back and rush things along.

Well today is a rainy Wednesday on Cape Cod, if you have ever been to Cape Cod in the fall then you know there are many rainy days, and Todd and I both think that today is the day the Angel Adoption looks at all the couple for the month of October and decides who to accept.

Waiting! So me and my impatience just wants to know the answer, we know that God's timing is perfect but I also am human and my desire to know whether it is this month that we get accepted or the next month or the month after that. I have great hope that it is this month but then again if it is November then my family would be here for Thanksgiving and we could celebrate together and if it was December it would be an amazing Christmas miracle so basically I wait.

Lord, help me as I struggle with my ability to wait. Help me to learn to be more content waiting in your safe and holy arms as you love me right where I am. Continue to bless Todd and I and our friends and family as we travel along this adoption journey. Amen!

Love in Christ,

Welcome to our journey

Hello Everyone,

Todd and I are in the beginning stages of the adoption process and we would love your prayers. We are hoping to be accepted into Angel Adoption program. We want to adopt a domestic infant and we are excited about this call in our life. If you would pray for us, or if you would like to financial support us that would be amazing! It is a challenging and exciting road for us and we would be blessed to have you journey with us as we go along in the desire to grow our family through adoption.

Prayer Request:
- Angel Adoptions would accept our application and we can move forward with finding a birthmother, doing our home study, and getting ready to welcome our baby home!
- We would follow God's will on how to financial afford the adoption
- God would protect our future child and birthmother
- That this process would bring us closer to God and to each other

Financial Support:
- If you are willing and would like to donate to our adoption story please make checks out to Todd and Meredith Peters with adoption in the memo. Thank you for any size donation!

Love in Christ,
Meredith and Todd Peters
