Finalization of Elijah Embry’s Adoption

4 Comments

Whooohooo!  If you have been following along with our blog, you can read about the roller coaster we have been riding these last few months.  It seems as soon as there is good news we are slapped in the face with bad news.  I guess adoption is just like that.  You have to fight for what you really want, and as you all know we  have wanted a family for a really long time.  So we will never stop fighting for our babies.

Elijah.  What a joy.  He came into our home on a Wednesday night 3 months ago.  When I think about it, he has always been ours.  It feels like he’s been here his whole life.  By the way his birthday is April 14th, for those of you who have asked.  We got the call for Elijah, because DHR knew we wanted to adopt and he was a possible adoption placement.  The only red flag was that there was an appeal that we had to wait on.  It could be a year they told us.  Well, we haven’t had to wait a year!  Foster children have to be in your home for 90 days before they can be adopted.  His 90 days will be September 19th.  We are meeting with the lawyer and DHR tomorrow for another visit.  One more visit is scheduled for Tuesday and then Wednesday we go to court for the judge to pronounce him “OURS!”  Of course he has always been “ours.”  He even looks like us.

So, in celebration of this momentous event we are going to PARTY!!!  Elijah loves a good party. 🙂  The theme will be “All the Children of the World.”  Even though it is a celebration of him, it is also a celebration of adoption in general.  Without this avenue we couldn’t be parents.  The Lord has blessed us in so many ways.  Afterall, he adopted us!

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Eph 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
Eph 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
Eph 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace

So Elijah has been CHOSEN, just as we have been CHOSEN and ADOPTED.  What a wonderful GIFT God has given us, to become HIS sons and daughters.  We are so blessed to be children of God.  And we feel so blessed to have Elijah as our son!

We hope you all can come.  We are so thankful for the words of encouragement and prayers offered on our son’s behalf.  We are grateful for all of you.  Please come wrap your arms around our child and let him know he is a part of the large, beautiful, family we have.  It would mean the world to us!

Jesus loves the little children

All the children of the world

Red and Yellow, Black and White

All are precious in His sight

Jesus loves the little children

of the world!

This is a story of two lovebirds who got in a little over their heads, or at times it feels that way, remodeling a little home built in the 1940's. Our journey has bumps and twists, ups and downs, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Please join us and our two poodles as we flip this old house and work towards the adoption of our first child!

  1. So sweet!! Hope to make it! ❤

  2. That would be incredible! I forgot to mention it will be at 1:00pm. 🙂

  3. I sure wish I could be there to meet this little fellow and give him a big hug. Please do that for me and tell him that this hug is from one of Jeff’s other mothers. You both have been very dear to me and I am so happy that God has done this for you. Have a great party! I love you all.

  4. Thank you so much Mrs. Terri! We wish you could be here to celebrate! We will certainly give him a hug from you! God has richly blessed us. We truly believe in His providence and timing!
