Sad news....

We were matched with a birth mom who was due this weekend. a beautiful young woman who selected our family and who she wanted to raise her unborn child. We were very happy and excited about the possibility of bringing a child into our home and had made all of our preparations to do so. 

unfortunately, we found out yesterday that the unborn child had developed some problems and had died. we are shocked and still a bit numb about it all. lots of tears for the mom and the child. we are praying for everyone involved. we know this was gods plan but it still hurts. this is the 2nd time we have had our hearts broken in the last minute so that makes it even harder. we are a strong family of faith and we will get through this. please pray for the birth mom and her child. we care deeply for both of them.

There are times in the lives of all of God's children when we are called on to suffer.  
We read in Romans 5 3:4 that suffering produces perseverance: perseverance, character and character hope.  

thank you so much...
