Chase Coleman

Meet the Colemans.  This is Ken & Stacy Coleman with their new baby boy Chase.  In the middle is Chase’s biological mother who selflessly assisted in completing Ken & Stacy’s family by allowing them to adopt Chase.  Chase is a beautiful baby.  Ken & Stacy are blessed.  They are great parents to their oldest son (Ty) and will be great parents to Chase.

Let me reflect on the lovely young lady in the middle.  As an adoptee (40 years ago) my mom was likely the same age as the girl in yellow.  She graciously gave me to a family that would be able to provide better care for me than she was going to be able to.  I have to believe that this is whats going through the mind of the girl in yellow.  I so appreciate her love, care, & sacrifice.  It makes me wonder if my biological mother had the same look on her face when she gave me away?  Was she happy that I was going to a better home?  Did she miss me?  Does she miss me today.

I do know that I was raised in a better environment than I might have had she not made that choice.  Adoption is a good thing.  More pregnant ladies should seriously consider this option.  God bless the Colemans.  God bless baby Chase.  God bless the girl in yellow.

 Who are you thankful for today?

  1. That Loran Lichty came to New Life. Your sincerity and depth are helping people to grow in their faith, your encouragement is helping to build up the church, and your direction is helping the church to reach more people in our community for God.

  2. The girl in yellow… the ultimate in “no strings attached” sacrifical giving… interesting this post follows the message on giving fully of your heart… equally hard to receive fully of your heat… the gratitude forever mama’s feel to their birth mama’s is litterally impossible to put into words… a daily experience of joy and appreciation… I feel it every morning when I walk into my sweet baby girl’s room and she greets me with, “Mama you’re here!” I follow with, “I am!” and “Good Morning my SONshine.”
