“I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him." - Samuel 1:27
Our adoption experience was one of the best experiences of our lives. The adoption process can be very complex and difficult. This decision will make a huge impact in your current and future lives.
With this in mind, we tried to do everything perfectly, learn as much as possible from the classes and training we attended, take notes, read the recommended parenting books and practice, among many other things. Our Buckner team did an excellent job during the process and all these steps were wonderful and truly prepared us as first-time parents to be ready for that day.
We wanted to make sure we had a perfect match to start our family. In other words, we tried to be in control every single step of the process. But when you pray and your faith is strong, miracles happen.
It is hard to explain but when God takes over this process and provides you the gift to start your family with a pair of angels - our two boys - you just feel so much joy and happiness. There is no feeling like when you realize your prayers have been answered.
Written by Humberto and Adriana Cantu, Buckner adoptive parents in the Rio Grande Valley, who recently grew their family with two sons.
