We have been forever changed by experiencing a faith-filled journey that first brought us our sweet Caitlin, then an adoption that ended in disappointment, and now one that placed us in the NICU with a sweet little baby boy. Never would we have chosen the disappointment and grief of losing children we had come to love and now worrying about the health of our new little addition, but God's plan has been to forever leave His mark of grace, brokenness, and freedom to obey even when we don’t understand. To Him be the glory for what He has done, and is doing, and will do!

With love and gratefulness to our Heavenly Father who has adopted us into His forever family, and to you, our family and friends,

Robert, Carlene and Caitlin Belue

Joy. Uncertainty and Trust

Cannon was born about 8:30 am, Sunday, Feb. 12th via emergency c-section, and weighed in at 7 lbs 11 oz.! Our attorney didn't find out until a day later, and was uncertain about some comments made by the birthparents that perhaps they were re-thinking adoption. So, we waited and trusted God to work out the details. We were given clearance to see Cannon two days after he was born. He is in the NICU for a variety of issues, and could be for some time. However, he is making good progress on a daily basis and we are able to spend time with him and help with feedings and hold him while he naps. He has a great team of doctors and the Great Physician who loves Him and created Him. We are grateful for this blessing! "Some of the greatest works in My kingdom have been done from sick beds..." (Young) We are trusting God to do a great work in his little life. We will post pictures when we are able; he is a blonde-headed cutie!
