going home

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.

  1. I am so, so sorry! Your family has not left my thoughts all day. As soon as my husband came home, I shared your story with him.

    I am just heartbroken over this. I promise to continue to pray. I am going to believe for a miracle yet to come. I can't imagine how you must feel as we didn't have to make this unimaginable trip home without our daughter, but at one point it seemed that was going to happen.

    I am so very sorry. I am angry too, but I won't say more on here. I hope you continue to share your story so that others will know that their is a fight going on in the realms we cannot see, and it is a stronghold.

    God is bigger and yes, He will be glorified. I am so humbled by your willingness to walk this very difficult walk with such grace and with a willingness to give God the glory alone.

    If I can ever be of any help, even just a listening ear, please don't hesitate to contact me. I promise to keep praying for your family, for Ethan's health and for God to comfort you in a supernatural way as you walk this out.

  2. This is so sad on all fronts, not really sure how people can judge you , they are not in your shoes and I cannot imagine how hard it must be to leave your sweet boy without seeing him, I have been praying for you all day and will continue to pray for healing for Ethan and that you are able to bring him home !

  3. So sorry to hear this. Our family was heartbroken to read your story. You will be in our prayers.

  4. We love you all and are praying for you all to have Gods peace. No one know what Gods plan is, we are all just trusting him for you all & Ethans best. We are so sorry for you pain.
