Not Ours

The baby that our lawyer found for us was claimed by his family during the process of declaring him abandoned. We are very happy for the baby, but very sad for us. We are so tired.

I am so sorry that this child did not work out for you. I'm sure this is hard to deal with, but I have confidence in God that He will send you a child that needs you and Jeff for whatever reason. Continued prayers for both of you.

Hey guys, sorry to hear, I know you were waiting and praying for this. But just think, God's got something so special in mind for you, it's hard for even him to find! He wants your child to be just perfect for you, and it will be. Keep your chins up, we'll be praying for your special phone call!

We lost a referral in Uganda as well. Oh, did it hurt!

We're praying for you. And also praising God that your attorney was doing a great job following the rules and finding the true story of the little one. I know that doesn't make it any easier. But I also know a couple who found out there was a family after they traveled, met, had court and were bonding with the child.

We will continue to pray that your attorney finds your little one and that our Heavenly Father comforts and protects your new one while you wait.
