It had started out as a pretty normal week. I was away from the house when my wife got the call. Her cousin, about 16 was pregnant. She was planning to give the child up for adoption, when she found out at the last momment that she could have a say in naming the adoptive parents. She called her uncle, a preacher, and he suggested us. That was on Tuesday. On Wednesday we decided to adopt, and plans were set for the child to be in our home the following MONDAY!
Of course, this matter was discussed with our preacher, and he immediately asked if he could announce it at services the next day. We agreed.
It was the end of the service when he announced it, that we were expecting a child. It got the expected, Aw... response. Then he lowered the boom...TOMORROW! Of course, he then explained the rest of the story.
Kids change things. I love my son and always will. Once again, God had presented us with a situation, and we followed. I would like to say it was in complete obedience to him, but I am not so sure about the "complete" part.
And life went on...
