Welcome, baby Jacob!

This past week I got to do this cake for a very special family in our church.  They have been praying to adopt a child for some time now, and had always been told that they would never get a newborn because, of course, everyone wants the babies.  They were fine with that and had even set up a room in their home for an older child.

Well, about a month or so ago they got a call that there was a baby born and asking if they wanted to go through the interview process to possibly adopt this baby. Needless to say, God worked in a mighty way, and this family was able to bring home a precious newborn baby boy.

Because they had such short, short notice about this blessing they were not prepared for everything that is needed for a new baby.  Our church family wanted to bless them and give them a baby shower.  The mom was just told that she was invited to a women's fellowship get-together.  The look on her face when she walked in and realized what was really going on was truly amazing. 

It was so great being able to love on this family.  It is one of the many reasons I love the Awakening Community Church.  When we see someone in need we do our best to take care of them.

Blessings to you, sweet baby Jacob.  God has big plans for you!
