Guys, I’ve tried to write something articulate and moving with a little dash of humor, but I just don’t have the brain power. Here are the facts.
On Tuesday of last week, our caseworker called to tell us that another birth mother has chosen us. We met her and her two children on Saturday morning, and we are moving forward with the adoption. Birth mom will have a scheduled c-section next Tuesday morning. Which means that one week from today, we are back in the hospital. The baby is a girl, and she is part Anglo/part Japanese.
I can tell you that we are having a hard time feeling excited. We are still mourning Ruby, and we know the reality of leaving a baby behind. The thought of going through it again makes me a little sick to my stomach. But the fact is: this is where the Lord is leading, so this is where we are going. One foot in front of the other – trying desperately to fix our eyes on Jesus. ‘Cause focusing on anything else right now is proving to be difficult. I know we’ve asked you to pray a lot, but we could use a few more if you’ve got ‘em.
