Well, here it is……..The first entry to our website!

We hope to use this site to keep you all posted and up to date on the happenings of our household. I firmly believe that a picture is worth a thousand words….So, grandmas, there’ll be numerous current photos! Marand and I are anxiously awaiting the birth of our first son, due June 4th. I’ll try to make time to post just a few, of the many blessings and challenges of the adoption process in the days to come. Our God is so good to allow us this new life to love and raise up for His honor and glory. Thank you for praying with us, and praising our God for his direct hand in each of our lives!

I would like to send a massage to your birthmom. I am sending the wings of angils to carry you throw this very difficult time. I too have placed 17 yrs ago and know what difficulty you  face. You have to say hello before you say goodbuy. I held my daughter in my arms and gave her a promise to find  a family to raise her with love faith and knowing it was all in gods plan. I kept my promise to her and placed her into her mothers arms . And in return I was given the chance to reach for my dreams, my goals and become the women I am today.  I Have an open adoption and throw this I was able to see my baby grow into an amazeing young women.  YOur steps toward healing has all ready began. Trust your heart and your decision keep the faith. This is not an ending but a new beginning for you and  your adoptive family and your son. Tina zimmermann

Every time I read something that you have written, your heart so devoted to our Lord Jesus Christ just shines through, and it makes me want to cry too! Tears of happiness! God bless you --
