This last month has been a month of ups and downs. We were contacted about adopting a little girl through disruption. Another child is always a good idea. However, after a very fast roller coaster ride, we are no longer going to be bringing this little girl into our home. It is very complicated, and I'm honestly not sure what to think...... other than, we have this homestudy.....
Up until yesterday, we had been given a hope and confidence that things were going to happen soon.
We have been practicing having a little sister in the hosue and have been discussing room arrangements etc. We even had a Christmas Present for her, just in case she arrived.....
Last night we received a sad email that things weren't going well, and then this a.m. we received the last email. It is over.
I cannot share details, as it really doesn't have to do with us..... I hope everything gets worked out soon for the benefit of the adoption community at large.
My heart hurts, but we rest in our Lord.
