The Story

Ross, Party of Four- Help Bring Baby Ross Home

The Ross family seems to have it all. Matt and Monique have been married for six beautiful years, and have watched God fill their lives with blessing after incredible blessing. When little Carter came along in 2014, their hearts were full. They were a party of three when they ate at their favorite restaurants. They took up three seats on planes as they traveled to visit friends, and hung up three stockings at Christmas.

But the Rosses know the incredibly humbling and grateful feeling of being adopted into God’s family. They know what it is to have a seat saved for them at His table and a new eternal home of safety and joy. Because of this, they have heard God’s call to adopt and are answering with a resounding, “YES!” For Monique, this is the answer to a lifelong call God has given her, while Matt’s call has come more recently. God has united them as they embark on this journey to bring a child into their faith-filled home.

Matt, Monique, and Carter are overjoyed to walk in obedience to God, following Him in adoption as He has adopted each of them into His own family. They are thankful for the tribe of friends and family that surrounds them with prayer and encouragement as they walk this path. They can’t wait to hang up four stockings. They are anxious to take up a whole row on an airplane. And, as they partner with their tribe and bring Baby Ross home soon, they are overwhelmed to be “Ross, Party of Four.”

Stay tuned for updates on their family’s walk to bring Baby Ross home. Adoptions are costly journeys, so we will be doing a few fundraisers throughout the process. Matthew and Monique are so thankful for your partnership, whether you feel led to give financially or (most importantly) as a part of their prayer team. God’s timing is perfect, and they eagerly await His provision to complete their family.

With Love,
Their Family

Hello sweet family and friends! It has been a bit since we have updated y'all on the happenings of our adoption so I thought I would take a minute and catch you up!

Since we started this process on March 31st we have been in the what they call the home study. Lifeline conducts several interviews with us, together and separately to get to know us on a more personal level. We also have an abundant amount of paperwork and discussion questions that are to be completed together at home before each session. This has been about a 4 month process. We had our last interview yesterday and we may or may not have done a happy dance when it was over! Don't get me wrong, it's been pretty awesome to see how much these sessions have prepared us and strengthened our marriage but we are more than ready to move on to the next step of our adoption. What is the next step you ask??

While we wait for our home study to be approved we are working on our profile book. With a domestic adoption, each family puts together a profile book with pictures and descriptions of what it would look like to be a part of our family. These books are then given to Birth Moms to review and prayerfully consider a "match" and ultimately a placement of the baby into our family. This book y'all. It may not seem like a big deal but it's pretty huge. It has brought me to tears, and not in a good way. I have had to just stop and pray about the words, pictures and what this Birth Mom must be thinking as she is reading it. It's consuming. Just being real! We took a few days break from it to attend the Lifeline Adoption Conference in Birmingham, Al. Wow, talk about God's perfect timing. There were testimonies shared from Adoptive families, Birth Moms, and a lady that was adopted herself. We also had breakout sessions with different topics such as Birth Mom Ministry, Transracial Adoption and How to Keep your Marriage First. It was a fabulous weekend. We were able to meet other couples that are going through this journey too. Anyways, back to my major God moment... the panel of adoptive parents spoke of their story, timeline and just encouraging words. One lady started to talk and just stopped and said "some of you are working on that dang book. Please please please do not stress about it. God has your child picked for you already and no matter what your book says, she will pick it because it is God's will, not because your pictures looked professional." Oh friends, I lost it. This was meant for me to hear. I needed that so bad. I wrote that quote down right away because I know I will need it again, but that is what I need to remember always. This miracle of a baby is already handpicked from God for US. So we will continue to work on that book with a smile and happily submit it once our home study is approved. Then, we wait. We wait for that handpicked family to be matched with us and we go from there! Friends, this is such an exciting time for our family but we are asking for your prayers. Prayers for our Birth Mom, what a courageous woman. She is making the biggest sacrifice for her baby to have a life he/she deserves. Pray for her heart and most importantly her salvation. Pray for us as we continue to fundraise. Pray for us in our time of waiting. Pray for our hearts to be open to any type of situation. Thank you all so so much from the bottom of our hearts for your love and support. We are beyond grateful!
