A Hurting Family ....

I have a sweet friend hurting today ... This family has received news that they will not be able to adopt two precious children they have been advocating for over a year to bring home unless God brings them a miracle... They have been visiting these precious angels and considered them part of their family. I ask you all to pray for them and pray God's will be done ...

Adoption is a journey that is hard to explain at times, hard to understand, and even harder to get your heart strings around ... I know as a community we can wrap our prayers around them as we do many others ... I appreciate how my blog family always stays on their knees ... I appreciate you more than you know ... As God says, "a strand of 3 cords is not easily broken" ... We will be those strands for one another ...

Love You All ...

Praying for your friends as they try to come to terms with this. Heartbreaking!

I was just reading these verses in my Bible this morning, and I will pray for them. Psalm 5:1-2 Give ears to my words, O Lord, consider my sighing. Listen to my cry for help my King and my God, for to you I pray. We can not help but "sigh" and pray for all those who are hurting in their wait to love children.

I just had a friend go through a similar situation. Her's was a private adoption and she had taken the birth mother to ever Dr. appt. The baby was born and had to be in the NICU for a few days. My friend stayed with him for 3 nights with out the birth mother and then the birth mother changed her mind. It was very painful for my friend. She held on to Jesus with everything she has. She has grieved as it was a terrible loss. I will pray for a miracle for your friends.
Blessings,
Cecelia

Oh how my heart aches for them. I never had the pleasure of touching W and B and my heart loved them just the same. Will pray for a peace that only the Lord could bring to them.

I'm really sorry to hear this and I will be praying. We still have a daughter waiting in Romania. She just turned 13. We first saw her when she was 6. We maintain contact with her and she calls us Mommy & Daddy. So, my heart really goes out to your friends.
