This is the coolest and sweetest story ever, also grab a tissue.

We never know what plans God has for us, nor
what life brings, but the only thing we know is that we should never lose hope that at
the end things are going to turn just fine as long as we don’t stop believing in miracles. This is the amazing story of Heather Crockett
Oram of Utah, submitted by her. It’s about her life, her struggles, and
her joys. She’s being honest when she speaks of her
inability to become a mother of a child she would carry inside of her, which doesn’t
make her less of a mother to the beautiful children who entered her life this way or
the other. It’s so touching and sweet that you may
not be able to hold your tears back. When I was 6 weeks old, I went to have an
ultrasound for tummy issues and they noticed my ovaries were not hooked up right. The doctor at the time felt it would be best
to remove them completely. When I was 13 years old, I found out I would
never be able to have children. It was then that I started researching adoption. As I grew older my biggest fear was to have
to someday tell a prospective spouse that I would never be able to birth our children. Then I met Jason. He was a single dad to 2 wonderful little
boys and we fell head over heels. Before we got engaged, I told him the biggest
secret of my life. One that only a handful of people knew about
me. I sobbed as I told him. He then grabbed my face and told me it did
not matter how our children came to us. They would be our children. Last June we were approved to adopt. After a lot of research, we did not want to
go through an agency. There were too many shady ones out there and
they cost close to $55K when all is said and done. So we set out to do it on our own. We ‘marketed’ ourselves online and through
social media. We made a Facebook adoption page and paid
for targeted ads. We had an Instagram page with pictures of
our life and we also put our profile on adoption.com. We were contacted by a handful of women and
most turned out to be scams. Then we got a message on Facebook. A young woman emailed us telling us that her
friend was pregnant and looking for a family. September 1st we got a phone call from this
woman in Missouri and we talked for an hour and a half. Over the next month we built our relationship
and became increasingly excited. However, she never got us official proof of
pregnancy. People can fake ultrasounds and blood tests
online all the time. I was ready to commit because I trusted this
woman, but my husband wanted to renew our adoption.com profile one more time. We renewed it on October 1st and on October
2nd we got a message from another expectant mother. She had been watching our profile and wanted
to meet us. Two days later we met in a little diner 20
minutes from our house. Just when we thought she had stood us up,
in walked a very pregnant girl and her mom. We hugged and she showed us the ultrasounds
of a little baby boy. He then started kicking and she had me feel
her belly. Towards the end of breakfast she asked us
how we felt. She then asked us if we would adopt her baby
and love him forever. Jason and I sobbed. In the middle of a diner. In complete shock. 3 weeks later we stood there and watched as
our son Andy was born. I was the first to hold him and kiss his tiny
hands. That was October 30th, 2017. As we took Andy home and adjusted to being
new parents, I had continued to talk to the first expectant mom we had matched with. She had still never given us proof. She had also told us congratulations and that
she found another family for her baby. I was happy for her and we maintained occasional
contact over the next couple of months. In January of this year I received a phone
call from this same woman. She told me she had just told the other family
she did not feel good about them adopting her baby. She then told me that she knew this baby was
supposed to be ours. I stood there holding my 3-month-old baby
boy and she sent me pictures of an ultrasound of the baby boy growing in her stomach. I was speechless. But I also knew. Deep down I knew. Over the next two weeks my husband and I prayed
a lot about adding another newborn to our family only months apart. The same resounding answer came again and
again. Six weeks after that phone call we flew out
with Andy to Missouri and met a woman and her three children the night before she was
being induced. We all instantly connected. The next day we stood at her bedside and watched
as our son Ellis was born. Jason even got to cut the cord. I was first to hold him and again kiss his
tiny hands. Never did we imagine having 2 newborn babies
only 4 months

  22. โคโคAwesomenessโคโค You're an Awesome set of parents who are showing Unconditional Love to these children! They will grow to be amazing adults because of your love, empathy and compassion! These birth mothers are so amazing to share their little miracles with you and I commend you for keeping the lines of communication open with them! That has to be the best feeling knowing that their babies are thriving in a home so full of love and even tho they're separated, they're only a phone call away! Post partum depression is Very real and some mothers that make the painful decision to adopt their babies out, whatever the circumstances, are more likely to suffer from depression and separation anxiety; but this way it won't be as bad knowing there's an open line of communication. You are all Amazing and I wish you all the best! ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’›โšœ

  23. Im proud of the mothers for knowing in their hearts that their babies needed Love and order, and a great life… Im proud of you two for being there for the children

  24. Good bless y'all. Lord I wish there was people all over the world like you all. There is a special place in God's kingdom for you guys. Much love๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
