This is a post we never imagined writing...and one that hurts deep within.
We received a call from our adoption consultant last night. We instantly knew the news wasn't good.
The details are sparse--but the facts remain the same.
The sweet little boy whose smile permeated our hearts--who we have prayed for by name--whose room we painted two nights ago--and whose closet was beginning to fill with well loved hand-me-downs.....
is no longer ours-
for reasons we may never know or fully understand.
The tears, confusion & uncertainties are many.
We fully believe God called us to this little guy--for reasons we may never know.
But, His plan didn't end the ways ours did.
So, we'll keep trusting and continuing on in this journey.
We will mourn and, we will move on, leaving behind a small part of our hearts
with a little boy that we already loved so dearly.
thanks for the prayers and love.
