You guys… where do I even start?! WE ARE PARENTS!!!! I’m crying as I type this because it still doesn’t feel real that we are sharing this with you all. We’ve been keeping this little man a secret for a while now & what a beautiful little secret he is. Our baby boy was born February 6th & weighed 7 pounds 8 ounces. We became parents that day thank you to one of the most amazing, strong, smart, & selfless women we have ever met who gave birth to the most beautiful little boy & made us mom & dad. We can never thank her enough, but we will try every single day by the way we love this little man. I never ever ever ever knew that adoption could be this beautiful & that there would be so much love involved all around.
I can’t believe that this time last year I found myself in the doctors office asking for help with my anxiety and depression. I can’t believe that several months ago I miscarried our 9th baby. I can’t believe that a few months ago God pushed us to start our adoption process I can’t believe that a few months ago we announced that we wanted to start this adoption process. I can’t believe the week that we decided to start our adoption journey was our 11th anniversary weekend where we met a man from South Africa named Copeland & we knew right then if we ever had a son we would name him that. Here we are a few months later with our little Copeland Beau Galvan who has given us a whole new purpose in life & has truly been the best gift we could have ever dreamed of. Cope is what dreams are made of. It was always him & when I look at him I regret ever worrying that God would grow our family. God is so good… every single day He is good.
I never ever ever knew love like this before… love for our son, love for his birth mom & birth dad, love for their family, falling more in love with my husband, & knowing a love for the Lord that I’ve never known because of how he has blessed us beyond our wildest dreams. Thanks be to God for pulling her heart towards adoption because she is more than capable to care for our son, but she chose us to parent him & I hope that our story can open others eyes to see how beautiful adoption can really be. I would have never dared to dream for something this perfect. So many of you have been asking if we are ok these past few weeks, now you know… we are ok & life is so good. We have been in our own little haven loving on our son & soaking in every single moment with him. Thank you to all who have ever prayed for us to be able to grow our family… you guys, HE’S HERE!!! Thank you for your continued prayers for all involved in our adoption & we can’t wait to share more of this perfect little babe with you all.
