Surprise - You're a Grandma! - A Beautiful Adoption Story! - Must Watch Video

" My husband and I had been in the adoption process for about a year. My mom, who is adopted herself, knew that we were home study approved. She had no idea, though, that we had been matched, let alone that we had been placed. Needless to say, she received the shock of her life that day as she met her first grandbaby! She thought she was just getting an anniversary present.  " - Laura Dell

PS - the onesie says "Grandma's Little Girl"

Laura and Josh Dell are adopting a girl from the United States - Story

To start at our adoption story, we need to start at the beginning of us. We met as teenagers in youth group. We lost touch after Josh started attending a different church. We reconnected around 18 years later, and we married shortly after that. After 2+ years of marriage, we are beyond confident that this was the plan God had laid out for our lives, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

We talked about adoption before we even got married. Laura can’t have kids biologically, and because of her experiences with adoption (her mom was adopted, and she has known several close friends who have adopted), she had always been excited about the idea of adoption. Josh had already decided he wanted children, and he had enough love that he didn’t care whether they were related by blood or not - he just wanted a family. So when we talked about it, the decision was simple. We know that God has called us to adopt.

We'd appreciate your prayers, thoughts and support as we take this journey. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask. We're excited about this stage in life and are relying on God for wisdom. Thank you so much for partnering with us!
