Talking to BabyCentre.com, Lacey said “waiting was the most difficult thing”.
“No one is going to know how you feel unless they have gone through it. All the tears and all the prayers – when you finally get what you were longing for – it is so worth it. Waiting through the darkest moments is so hard.”
Lacey and Banks were connected with Finley’s birthday mother through Binti.com, an online adoption matching service.
It’s understood that throughout the pregnancy, Lacey and Banks developed a close relationship with the birth mum and when she gave birth, the couple were there straight away to begin caring for Finley.
