After not being able to conceive a child on their own for years, Matt and Katie were ready to try anything. Then they realized that only one option was the right choice for them: adoption.
As soon as they came to this exciting realization, they started the adoption process within their home state of North Carolina. While it takes time, they braced themselves for the inevitable delays and focused on adopting one of God's blessings that needed a home.
Shockingly, Matt got the phone call they had been praying for shortly after the process was complete! Some people had to wait months or years to receive a baby, but God had other plans for this young couple.
To make things even more exciting, Matt and Katie found out that they were about to be parents to a baby girl born that same day. They could not believe what was happening!
That means that there were far fewer legal matters to deal with. Immediately after bringing their daughter Natalie Gray home, the couple shared an important vow with her. They promised here the following:
"We, Matt and Katie, take you Natalie Gray. We promise to love and to care for you to the best of our ability with the guidance of God, our Father."
They also vowed to guide little Natalie through life's challenges, laugh with her on good days, cry with her on the bad, share day-to-day life experiences and grow together with God! But Matt and Katie's most important part of the vow was to be the best parents they could.
Their heartwarming story shows the true beauty of adoption and how much joy a baby can bring for a couple that just can't conceive on their own! It shows how there are incredible couples out there just waiting for a baby to bring home and call their own.
