This little bundle of joy was added to the Groman Family :)

Here's the story...
As you all know, my in laws Tim and Beth have been trying to adopt for about a year now and when I got the call in March that there was a possibility that a new addition could come in May, ON MY BIRTHDAY, I was way more than psyched! Well, Zeke didn't make his arrival on my birthday, but he did make it eight days later. But here's the thing, I had no idea this little boy would impact my life so much. You see, I have always prayed since I was a little girl, but this new addition had me praying like never before. I have never in my whole life prayed for something so often, so consistently, and so intensely. For the first time and with someone so dear to me, there was nothing I could do to help Tim and Beth have a child. I couldn't make them have a baby, I couldn't pull any strings to get a baby to them any faster, there was nothing I could do...but pray. And I have never felt such an urge to pray for something so passionately than in March when I heard the news of a possible birth mom choosing Tim and Beth. From that day, until 5:30 AM the morning he was born, I prayed every single day, multiple times a day. Every time I thought about Beth (which was quite often) I prayed. Because of Zeke, I has seen and experienced God like never before. Because of Zeke, I learned that what the Bible says is true, that God will give you the desires of your heart. I whole heartedly had every piece of my heart praying for this little boy to be the child that God had planned for Tim and Beth from the beginning. And when I saw him for the first time in Fort Wayne the day he came home, tears welled in my eyes as I saw God's faithfulness through this little baby. Zeke to me is a physical form of God's faithfulness that I have never experienced before through such persistent prayer. I am blessed to be apart of this little one's life and I owe him a lot for showing me how truly big our God is. I love you Zeke and can't wait to give you a cousin to play with soon!
