Just wanted to briefly say a few things before we shut the computer down and head to the train station.
It is very tempting for people to judge us, I made the mistake of getting on facebook and even among all the beautiful and loving and caring posts and prayers, I saw those who want to judge our situation. First of all, have the guts to use our names if you are going to talk about our situation. Don't be a junior high kid and talk in half-truths and imply things to leave people wondering what you are talking about. Please leave us alone if you can't truly be on our side. Pray for us, not against us and stop trying to pretend you know what God's plan for us is.
God Bless all of our true friends and our amazing church for everything they are doing, I know I don't even know half of it. We are mature enough in our Christian walk to know that God has never left us, He has a plan and it is so much greater than ours. We have an entire community of believers who know us and know that we can be hurting without blaming God for what has happened. God allows things to happen so He can be glorified. We will praise Him in this storm. But we are still broken hearted and that is where the body of Christ comes in. Thank you to everyone who came to LifePoint to pray for us on Tuesday night. My mom was so impressed and told us how much we are loved and supported. It was awesome for Isabella and Becca to witness that.
We were left with no choice but to leave this place without Ethan. We were not allowed to make the trip to see him and we will have to live with that fact. We will do everything we can to come back and adopt him. He is our son and that will never change. God is good ALL THE TIME.
Prayers are appreciated and needed.
