Re: My story....(sad)



This is almost exactly what we went thru with our first attempt at adoption... only we brought her home on the second day and had her for 6 more days at home. It almost ripped our marriage apart... but we went to some counseling and then God showed us his infinate wisdom when we were matched with Alli's birthfamily..... she's been an incrediable blessing that would wouldn't have if we had hung onto the first baby.

I don't know what God has planned for you, but just hang on tight - tell God how you feel (He can take it! ) and just pray for whatever doors are to be opened next....

I'm praying for you!

I am so sorry for your loss mama. God has a plan for your little girl.

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

This is such great advice. Sometimes people are scared to be honest with God about their disappointment. The truth is, He already knows anyway. This may have caught you off guard but it did not catch God off guard. Even though sometimes it seems like he's totally failed us His plans really are higher than ours. Trust Him, mama. Praying that your heart heals so that you can walk into the destiny that He has for your family. Do you guys think you want to pursue another baby?

I am so sorry for your pain. I can't even imagine. I pray that God will make that mother the mom that baby needs, and that He will bring you the child that needs a mom and dad just like you and your husband. God bless.
