Our hearts our sad tonight. We found out yesterday that we can no longer adopt the two children we have fallen in love with and planned for. Unforeseen circumstances came up making the adoption not possible for these children. International adoption comes with risks. When we started our home study process, we were informed of many risks. We felt prompted to move forward regardless.
The complications that arose were not the agency’s fault. Even through our grief, we know we can’t give up. We have felt God’s guidance and love. I believe God is watching and has a plan for us. We are moving forward and praying about other orphans that need a family. Those orphans know all too well about grief and loss.
We feel such gratitude for the love and support showered over us. Strangers and people we don’t know have contributed. The miracles are too many to count.
We thank you for all your prayers and contributions. We will keep you updated as we move forward with this journey of adoption.
