Faithful. Through thick and thin, staying faithful is how I would describe Cecily & Eric.

“Eric and I have experienced tremendous loss, the loss of six babies. After the sixth we stopped trying and began pursuing other options.” – Cecily

* Warning : This is real joy, so only read on if you’re ready to smile today.

“We began the process of adopting through our fertility clinic, we were told the wait would be up to six months. Two months went by and I received a call, I remember to this day receiving that call while I was driving. I had a long list of things I had to do for that day and when I got the call all I could think was I needed to get out of the car and get down on my knees. We had three embryos available! For us!! Our God chose us!”

But wait, it gets better.


Favorite Cecily quote:

“I truly believe God was winking at me, saying, ‘I have you, keep your eyes on me.’ ”

On a whim, I looked up the meaning for the name Ellis. It means “the light of God.” Fitting, hm?

I feel honored to have captured this journey for these two, so they can always remember how God came through for them when they stayed close to Him.

Congratulations to Eric, Cecily and this cute little bundle they’re so excited to meet!
