hope [adoption]

Amy and I work together and she shared her story On Coming Alive in the face of infertility. A few weeks after it was published we sat on the floor of my office crying as she was called by an attorney and told that she and her husband were selected by a birth mother for a domestic adoption. Now, her sweet baby is here and has spent two months bringing so much joy to Amy and Matt's lives. After years of trying and tests and fertility treatments and heartache, she is here and the prayers they had been praying for so long were answered in the form of this tiny little girl whose middle name is so appropriate: Hope.
