This is beautiful, I wish them all the love and joy of the holidays. My wife and I are in the early stages of adopting and I could not think of a more perfect day for this to take place. It reminded me of the old song called "Christmas Carol"( I am really not old enough to remember this song but I have heard it!!!)

I my heart goes out to the birth parents who decided to give their precious baby up for adoption. For whatever reason they decided to do it, it takes love and courage to give your child up to strangers to take care of because they were unable to care for her. Obviously, they did love their baby and wanted the best for her and they should be blessed for that. Congratulations to the new parents of Amelia. Merry Christmas to both families birth parents, and new adoptive parents. God has blessed you both and you have both shown love for Amelia the child. Also I think it is wonderful that the adoptive parents gave the baby Amelia the birth mothers name as her middle name. She will someday want to know about her birth parents and what a great thing to have a tie to her always.

God is so awesome, loving and all knowing!! I remember when I was in a Bible study with Barbara and Darlene and Barbara had just had a miscarraige. She was heart broken and we all hurt for her and prayed for the whole family. Not understanding why, but still believing in the only one true God, the Creator Himself, we knew He was on the throne and would bring good out of it - for the Bible promises this to His children. Wow, when God does something, He does it right!!! What a beautiful miracle their little girl is and she is very fortunate to be raised in this loving Christian home.

Love in Christ,
A Friend

I'm a little late but just wanted to say that God knew who to give that little girl to... I can't think of a more stable loving family than Barb and Mike and Danny. Amelia will forever be loved and very well taken care of by them....
