Praying for B-ma :)

One of the things that I've been able to do while we're in this slight holding pattern is pray for the birthmother that God will match us up with. I have officially nick named her B-ma. *teehee* I have so much respect for her, whoever she is. That she would choose to entrust her baby to us, and bless us with the very gift that we have been hoping and praying for. I don't know her name, how old she'll be, or what she'll be like, but I already love her. Yes, I am dying to meet Baby Miller, but the more I think about and pray for the person Baby Miller will come from, the more excited I am to meet her. I have been praying that God would comfort her in what must be the most difficult and heart-wrenching time her life. That He would lead her to the right people to help her through this. That Ryan and I would be an encouragement to her heart, and be a testimony of God's love. 

Below is another birthmother's story. I will never fully know what their side of the story feels like. But I hope that as I continue to listen to their perspectives, God will work a heart of understanding, compassion, and respect in me. I want to be a blessing to B-ma. :)


  1. Crying my eyes out after watching that video! Praying for both you and Ryan and also for your "B-ma"

    Reading your jouney has been such a blessing..a tearful blessing, but one nonetheless... Your posts show that even in valleys and deserts, God recieves all the glory and praise. I just want to give u a big hug right now..

    2. Oh Denay, we join you in praying for B-ma! Can't wait to see how God will use you and Ryan in the lives of a precious baby that God has planned for you as well as his/her B-ma! Love you! Thank you for your courageous walk of faith, and for allowing us, your friends who dearly love you, to walk along side you through this and more importantly, have the absolute privilege to pray and see how God will use you! What an inspiration you are! Thank you!

  2. What a great story....cried through the whole thing! Can't wait to see what the Lord has planned for your family. We will be praying for her and the B-pa as well. We LOVE our birth families. Daily we thank our God for them. They are a huge part of our family. As I watched the video, what a sweet reminder of God's sovereignty and His precious Gospel. We have a second chance, His plan is bigger and better than ours. His love is unconditional and sacrificial! Love you guys! Auntie Kellie
