A prayer for a friend

Please pray and send good thoughts to my friend Alicia and her husband Josh who literally had an adoption slip through their fingers this week. They have been trying to have a child for over 7 years now and got news last week that a woman had chosen them to be adoptive parents of her soon-to-be-born baby boy, only to change her mind this week. I don't have any judgement towards this mother - but at the same time I am upset that my friend is hurting.

Take a few moments to read her blog, http://www.yayastuff.net/, and their adoption website, http://hopingtoadoptamiracle.blogspot.com/, if you'd like.

Thanks.

I'm so sorry for your friends. Something similar happened to my friend a few years ago and it was a devastating experience. Fortunately, they recently adopted a beautiful baby boy and have started their Forever Family.

I was so excited for Team Jalicia...when I read her post last night I literally read as my draw hung open...and thought "no this just can't be"...seems so wrong. I too am not mad at the birth mother...but perhaps they shouldn't have gotten 'the call' until after the baby had been born and there was no chance the mother would waiver...

I will continue to pray that their baby finds it's way to them soon.

Hey Rosemarie, That is really sad for your friends. I'll keep them in my thoughts and pray for hope.

Thank you Rosemarie.

Yes, I can often find the purpose of even the most horrible experiences in life. I guess I'm still waiting to find out the purpose of us preparing our house and hearts for this little boy. :(
