Meet sweet Benjamin, the son of dear friends of mine.  He entered this world on February 14, the perfect Valentine’s Day for his family.  I received an email from Ben’s mommy the Friday before his birth saying that they were being blessed with another adoption miracle.  Our God is so good.  I could not be happier for Mitch, Krysta, Kaden and little Ben.  Welcome to the world, little man and congratulations to your family that loves you to the moon and back.

You see, if it wasn’t for Krysta, I wouldn’t be blessed to work with such an amazing adoption organization here in town (read more about it here).  What an honor.

Meet Benjamin Patrick and his parents:

Mom and Dad have been married for 9 years and they were looking forward to starting a family. After several years of infertility drugs and treatments without a successful pregnancy, they decided to pursue adoption. They found an adoption agency, Crisis Pregnancy Outreach, where they immediately felt right at home. Mom and Dad created a lifebook for birthmoms to view and after their book had only been available to profile for a short 2 weeks, they were chosen to parent a baby boy that was 4 weeks old. On July 7, 2009, they met their son, Kaden and brought him home where he has grown into an active and adorable boy.

In the Summer of 2011, they decided that they were ready for number two and created another lifebook of their family. They waited about 7 months the second time around and met a birthmother that was due in just a few days. They met her one day, saw their baby on ultrasound the next day where they found out it was a boy and the next day, on February 14th, their second son, Benjamin was born. Ben’s birthmom was incredible and invited Mom to be a part of the delivery. She witnessed Benjamin being born and even cut the cord. It was the most amazing and emotional experience. They love both of their birth mothers for their bravery and selflessness. Without them, Mitch and Krysta wouldn’t be parents. They love adoption and are so happy to be a family of 4!
