My oldest daughter had an unplanned pregnancy 2 yrs ago. The entire time my daughter was telling me she didn't want the baby. She would even yell at her stomach sometimes and say, "I hate you!" and this would make me cry at night.
I would pray to God that he would tell the baby that it was loved by me. We found out it was a girl but I felt I already knew it. I felt really close to the baby for some reason.
Adoption preparations were complex and very unsettled. My daughter refused to meet the parents.
Two weeks before the birth I was sleeping on the couch and cried myself to sleep. I told God I was going to have one more last cry and then accept His will for the baby.
That night I had a vivid dream where a baby girl came to me but just her face, fading in and out. I remember her face. She seemed to be just under a year old and about 8 months.
She spoke to me in my mind, reassuring me that everything would be ok and she even called me grandma. I woke up the next morning feeling like God just wanted me have peace with the situation.
After she was born and while we were in the hospital, my daughter had a really difficult time giving up the baby. She postponed and we were all bonding to the baby already, including the prospective parents.
Exactly one hour before the parents came to pick up the baby my daughter was holding her and I said, "If you don't want to do this then you don't have to.
I will help you." She changed her mind and 30 minutes later we were on the phone and making arrangements to take the baby home. I couldn't believe it! I was in shock. After 3 months my daughter said she just couldn't "do it" and I've had my granddaughter in my care ever since.
She ended up looking exactly like the baby in my dream. As God is my witness, this is the honest truth! What a beautiful gift and I just praise God for his blessing.
