Adoption is Hard

This is not a post I ever thought I'd write and I'm not sure how I'll put my thoughts into words. We are saddened to share that we will not be bringing baby girl into our family. She was born last week, healthy and beautiful, and her sweet mama decided she could not place her for adoption. We have loved this baby girl and her mama for 18 weeks and are grieving deeply but trust that the Lord is sovereign, good, and faithful (was, is, and will be). We believe this is just the beginning of a beautiful story He is writing, for our good but ultimately His glory. Our house can flood and our adoption can fail but our hope in you Jesus will not be shaken. 

We are asking for prayers and also privacy as we start the healing process and navigate what is next for us. #hartlittlesadopt #adoptionisbeautiful #adoptionishard

So many prayers of love, comfort and peace to you and your family.

Many prayers! This is one of the things that I'm terrified about happening when my husband and I finally go the route of adoption (Still hoping for a little Gilbert miracle!). I hope your hearts heal and you are matched again soon!

Unknown said...

I'm sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine what you and your family are going through. There is a sweet spirit out there waiting for you!

I am so sorry for the sorrow you are experiencing as you grieve this loss. Psalm 138:8, "The Lord will work out his plans for my life, for his faithful love endures forever."

While I do not know you personally, I have truly enjoyed your posts about your beautiful children, your hubby, your family as a whole. I have prayed often for your family through your adoption process. I pray for complete peace and comfort for your family during this time. I pray that you will be blessed with the child GOD has for your family, that even as I write this, the next chapter has already started and will bring you, and your family, much joy and many blessings.
I am also praying for this mother that has decided to keep her baby, that all goes well for them in their future as a family.
Keep the faith, GOD has it all worked out.

Ruthie and Jon,

I'm so very sorry to hear of this development. However, as you and Jon know, Jesus has something else in mind for your beautiful family. God is holding you in the palm of His hand. Believe it.

Sending prayers to you and your family every day!

I am so sorry to hear this news. I can only imagine how sad and disapointed you are. I am sending many thoughts and prayers your way.

Devastating news and I'm very sorry for your broken hearts. Keep the faith and I pray you find comfort in knowing a child is out there
that will love coming to your home at some point. Big hugs and hang in there. I had family that went through the exact same thing and it's a very hard time.

Mckenzie Jean said...

Oh, I am so, so sorry to hear this. I can only imagine how broken your hearts must be. I have a dear friend who went through the same thing just a couple of months ago. I will keep you, your family, that sweet little girl, and her mama in my prayers.

I pray that God will give you peace that surpasses all understanding.

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
