One of the things I keep seeing demonstrated since I’ve become more active with A Child’s Hope is that there’s a plan for every adoptive family. Whether you believe in the Christian God, Allah, a conscious Universe – whatever you call to choose that force out there that ties seemingly random events into a unified whole – there is a plan, and it is AWESOME!!
Take Birth Mother Donna (name changed for privacy). She had chosen adoptive parents out of North Carolina, but that situation fell through. We were peripherally involved in her case, so she chose our agency to help her. In the past week, she had a match meeting with one set of parents, who decided against going forward with her. She’s very close to term…VERY close. In fact, the doctors “stripped her membranes” on Monday, so she really should have given birth already. But she didn’t.
Donna reviewed more profiles and chose another couple. They had a match meeting yesterday, and it went beautifully! Now it’s Friday morning, and she’s gone into labor. Apparently that baby was just waiting to meet his or her adoptive parents.
Random events? Maybe. But I don’t think so, and you’ll never convince me otherwise.
