Mandi and Tyler Palmers like many couples dreamed of blessing their lives with children and having a family.
They were unable to get pregnant no matter how hard they wished or how hard they tried.
Little did they know the man above had another plan in store for them.
They contacted their doctor after several failed attempts.
Mandi also had Crohn’s disease so that complicated things more.
She explains”We were still hopeful, but I realized quickly that I couldn’t gain weight. So I’m like, ‘how am I going to be able to carry a child?’”
The decision was made they were going to explore the adoption route.
In order to be granted a license, they signed up for classes, in hope that they could one day bring home a baby of their own.
The day they have finally been waiting for happened and the call came.
“Once we got licensed as foster-to-adopt parents, that week, we got the phone call for Hunter. He was 8 days old,” Mandi explains.
A rollercoaster of uncertainty followed.
After encountering a few setbacks — like the uncertainty of the child not being granted — the couple received the official call confirming they would be able to officially adopt Hunter.
The family headed to the courthouse on the 18th of December to sign the official paperwork.
Then came the moment which is being shared with millions of people worldwide.
Mandi remarks, “At the end of the court process, the judge announced Hunter’s new legal name. And they read the adoption decree and that’s when Hunter looked at my husband and he said, ‘Dad!’”
Mandi explained that the whole room applauded as tears were brought to their eyes, such a joyous reaction in the courtroom!
Mandi felt like she got a little urging from the man upstairs despite being hesitant to enter the foster program.
“We prayed on it, and we just felt like God pushed us to do it.”
This story truly shows what a little faith and a lot of love can do.
Let’s share their inspirational story to give other families a little bit of hope.
