All coming together!

What a great week we have had! We are excited about what is coming up in our life and we look forward to what God has in store for us.

We have our profile up on Angel Adoption's website which means that at any point a birthmother could pick us! We are so excited to be in the waiting period and we know others are so excited as well. I have the joy of hanging out with teenagers and whenever my cell phone rings and the number is not in my contacts they are like "this could be it! Answer it!" It is a joy to be able to walk through this journey with our family and friends and we are all waiting with high hopes for what God has in store for us. If you want to look at our profile this is the web address...,com_family/Itemid,138/id,428/view,detail/

What else has been going on you may be asking? Well we have been considering doing a dinner here at our house but quickly realized that we won't have enjoy space for everyone so the church is letting us use the fellowship hall. We are going to have our dinner March 23 from 6:30-8 pm. Everyone is invited, we are asking that you PLEASE RSVP so we have plenty of food and have enough tables set up. We are going to do the dinner by donations. We are also blessed to have a friend who is donating the cake for the event. Her name is Carolyn Ferris Graves and she owns Cake & Islands and we thank her so much for the amazing donation of a cake for the fundraiser. (her facebook page for Cake & Islands is We are also going to have the talented Bob Wilson play some jazz music on the piano during the dinner so thank you to him. It is amazing to Todd and I that we are so blessed by people willing to help us as we continue to follow the call of God to adopt a baby to our family! We hope you can come to our dinner and enjoy the talents of these wonderful people and get to have fellowship as we rejoice over what God is doing through our lives.

We also have our tee shirts for sale starting TODAY! :) We are thrilled that this has worked out for us as we want to not only raise money for our adoption but help others be able to adopt in the future. Our shirts are being sold through Adoption Bug and $1 from every shirt goes back to the Show Hope Organization which helps families adopt! We are thrilled. If you would like to support us and buy a cool tee shirt at the same time all you have to do is go to, and place your order. Your shirt will be shipped to your house and we will raise money for our adoption! Easy!!

Thank you so much for your prayers as we continue to wait on the Lord to have our birthmother directed to us. We can't not say it enough but THANK YOU! Thank you for your support, prayers, love, and strength! We are so blessed!

We hope to hear that all of you can make it on March 23 at 6:30 pm at Church for our Adoption Fundraising Dinner!

God Bless,
Meredith and Todd Peters


  1. What a great idea for the t shirts! Of course I want one! I know about Show Hope...they are a good organization. And yes, I plan to be at the dinner!!!!! I was just thinking the other day about the excitement that will instantly come about when you and Todd get the phone call!!!!!! It made me think about the crazy episode on "I Love Lucy" when the Mertzes and Ricardos are practicing for the arrival of the Ricardos baby...."This is it. the time has come." They try to be so calm but when it really happens there is nothing calm about it...just pure excitement, neves, joy, anticipation and craziness! Isn't life great! Isn't God good! I love you both! Mom

  2. I didn't know you guys were looking to adopt! That's great! There are some kids I work with that would have had a really rough life if they hadnt been adopted by their loving new parents. I bought a tshirt. Hope that helps you guys on your way at least a little bit. We will be praying that all goes well and you aren't kept waiting too long!
