People choose to adopt babies for a variety of reasons.
Maybe they were raised in a household filled with foster children and grew up wanting to make a difference in a child’s life themselves. Others are motivated by the desire to help a child in need, while still some are unable to conceive children of their own. Matt and Katie Curtis fall in the latter category.
After struggling for years to have a child of their own, they started the adoption process.
Matt and Katie asked Genesis Media Solutions, a Birmingham, Alabama-based videography company, to document the entire process. The result is the video below, which is a candid and emotional look into what exactly happens during an adoption journey.
The video starts out with them unsure if they’ll even become parents.
But it quickly jumps to the moment that Matt finds out some incredible news. He received the phone call they’d been waiting for: A baby girl had been born that day, her mother had already revoked her parental rights, and she would soon be on her way from Raleigh, North Carolina, to Charlotte.
Matt stops by Katie’s office to tell her the good news.
“She was born already,” Matt tells Katie.
The couple weren’t even sure they’d get a baby — and now they were finding out she would be coming to them in a matter of days! But possibly the sweetest moment of the process comes when they meet their precious girl.
“I’m your dad!” Matt says.
This is one lucky little lady who’ll be surrounded her whole life with more love than she’ll know what to do with!
