Lindsay's Maternity Leave

                  This is the Tedder Family Story:
They are so overwhelmed by how quickly God took them from being a couple to becoming parents of Carter Joseph!   Here is their MIRACLE Story!  Lindsay & Todd have walked through infertility, as a lot of you may know, they have struggled to conceive for over the last 10 years. They have had a miscarriage, several procedures, and hundreds of negative pregnancy tests.  For the last 18 months, they have been considering surrogacy, adoption, IVF and even considered just being doggy parents.  A few weeks ago they were at the Klepser's home discussing all of this and what the next steps would be.  Lindsay & Todd both felt that they would walk out whatever path God had planned and do whatever God asked.  Their heart's desire was to make sure they are walking in the way God was directing! Linsday said "why can't God just drop a baby at our door? I would love that baby no matter what!" After discovering some doors were closed it made for a particularly bittersweet Mother's Day, but through Lindsay and Todd's obedience to God's plan they found out about Carter Joseph, affectionately called CJ, on that same Mother's day! One week after hearing that CJ needed a loving home and loving parents, they met the birth mom then the next day they hired an attorney and two days later they had physical custody of their precious son! It's been a crazy, whirlwind in less than two weeks, but they are going to love this baby no matter what!  They still have a long process but are completely in love with this miracle baby and are praying for God's hand to continue to guide them as they walk through the next steps and learn how to be a family of 3 (plus two sweet doggies)! Here's how we can help, Lindsay is taking FMLA for maternity leave, however this is without pay and as most of you know, bein' a parent aint cheap!  Let's join and celebrate with them by given them a chance to bond with their new son and not worry about the money!
