It was March 16th, 2011 when we were introduced to Candice, and our lives were changed forever. Candice was a young traveling girl who had found herself pregnant, but knew she was not ready to be a mother. Her initial decision was to have an abortion, but through the grace of God and the kindness of several friends, Candice decided to carry her baby full term and give her up for adoption. Kelly Boy and I had always wanted to adopt, so we couldn’t have been more excited when Candice asked us to be the parents of her soon to arrive baby. We all hit it off immediately, and over the next 5 months, we had the opportunity to get to know each other as we prepared for the arrival of our baby.
Chapel Augusta Clark was born August 15, 2011. She is a beautiful baby that literally overflows with joy. We could not be any more proud that she is our daughter, and are so thankful that God(and Candice) have given us the opportunity to be parents to another amazing little girl.
The entire story of Candice deciding to go through with her pregnancy and the intricacies of how God worked out ever tiny detail was so amazing, we decided to have a film crew document it for us. We wanted to be able to share our story with others that may be going through the same thing. We also knew how special it would be for Chapel to one day be able to watch HER story and see what a miracle she is!
You can watch our story below. The first version is the full film. The second is a shorter 3 minute version that gives just a brief overview of our story. Thank you for letting us share with you!
