For His Glory

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Wow--the past ten days have been a whirlwind of crazy emotions and now we have the best news to share with y'all!!

WE HAVE A SON!!!

Just to recap--on Thursday, February 21st, we found out that our first adoption had failed because the birth mom decided to parent.  We were absolutely devastated.  I wrote about it here.  Then exactly ONE WEEK later, we received a call about a baby boy born who is now our son.  God is so good, y'all.  So good.


We are so excited to introduce Harrison Booth Allessandro Shaneyfelt!!
Born February 27 at 11:46pm in Corpus Christi, TX
He weighed 4 lb 7 oz and is 17 inches long

Harrison is a name that Dustin and I have loved for years--way before talk of babies.  Booth was Dustin's grandfather's name and we love that we're able to give him a family name and Booth is someone Dustin admired.  We are keeping the name his birth parents gave him as a second middle name because we love them so much and are so excited to have them in ours and Harrison's life forever!  



Because he was born prematurely, he is currently in the NICU, but he's making gains!  We are praying for no longer than a week NICU stay, but we know that it could be longer.  Paperwork for ICPC doesn't begin until after he is discharged from the hospital and that could take up to 14 days.  Obviously, this is more than we had planned for.



We stepped out on faith and are trusting the Lord in all aspects of this adoption because we truly know that He is behind it all.  Yes, we're terrified of the financial aspect, but we know God is sovereign over that.  

If you would like to donate to our Adoption Paypal account to help us cover the extra expenses with Harrison's adoption, you can do so at paypal.me/DustinShaneyfelt

**I plan on doing a HUGE post later describing in detail the past few days, but right now, I am lacking on so much sleep!

  11. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I read your blog regularly and have been so excited for you, and your last news of the failed match made me only hope for a new match to be made soon...…..but this is VERY soon!!! I am very, very happy for you. As a mommy of an 8 month old, with a new one due in August(!), baby stories are extra special to me right now. I also have some dear friends who have adopted boys twice, not without heartache along the way. Hoping that your little guy will be hearty and healthy enough to leave real soon, and that the Lord will provide for the finances. Money to Him is the tiniest, most superficial detail, so one way or the other, He will see that part of it through. Look at how far He has brought you, and He owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and can easily (if miraculously!) provide extra funds. Don't worry about that, JUST ENJOY YOUR NEW SON!!! =) PS. Babies with a head full of hair are extra cute; my little girl had the same!!! I love it!

  12. Awe, this is so sweet and such a testimony to the faithfulness of our God. As I've told you before, our 2nd Gran, a girl, was adopted at birth and it was one of the most awesome experiences of ourlives. Blessings abundant in the days ahead.
