Happy Adoption Day, Ben and Lydia!

Does networking work?  It does.  Family Life Services has become known for having great quality, Christian families who wish to adopt and we often receive messages from other agencies, looking for adoptive families for specific situations.  One Friday night in February, JJ and I received a phone call from Life for Kids in Florida, requesting a possible adoptive family for a newborn baby.  We contacted a family who had worked with our agency, who met all of the requirements, on the following day (Saturday) and asked them to contact the agency directly if they were interested.  By the following Friday (just 7 days later), Ben and Lydia were on their way to Florida to receive the adoption placement of their newborn son, Jeremiah Blakely.  Jeremiah was born on February 11, 2010 and placed with his adoptive family on February 19, 2010.  Congratulations!
