Well, today was the day that we were going to meet our new daughter. The day that Abi was going to become a big sister. But sometimes life takes some very unexpected and heartbreaking turns.
Wednesday afternoon we got the call to come on down to Las Vegas as they were going to be inducing the baby in a few days. But on Thursday afternoon we got another call that the birth mother had changed her mind and decided to keep the baby. She had severed contact with our adoption agency so there is no way there will be another change for placement. The agency advised us to try to move on and just head home.
We are obviously broken-hearted, but know that this is a major decision for the birth mother to make. One that we will never fully comprehend, and one that we can not bully her into making in our favor. We just pray that she will be able to take care of and provide for that baby.
We know that good things are headed our way in the future and we are managing to stay upbeat. Like I had mentioned before God is good and I know He has a plan for our little family.
I’m going to be taking the day off to settle back to into our normal routine so I apologize for the change in the schedule and the time that it’s taking so long to respond to your emails. Be on the lookout for the season 14 auditions bright and early tomorrow morning.
PS – I HATE that I had to lead this post with a social boom. It sort of makes me feel like a sell out, but it is a commitment that I made for this date well in advance and I couldn’t back out with such late notice.
