Okay, this is one I hate to write. But, like it or not, you’re sharing in this journey with us now.
We received a call late this afternoon that the c-section did not take place. I won’t go into the details except to say that they are not health related and the birth mom has not changed her mind about the adoption. (Vague enough?)
The c-section has been rescheduled for 3/21.
Our official welcome into the roller coaster ride called adoption land.
Praying for you all.
Keep trusting God! In all things for our good.
Wow! 2 more weeks, the waiting is the hardest. I pray God’s peace is with your family and the birth mother.
It’s like your REALLY giving birth to this baby! Don’t numb the pain (no epidural!) Living through the pain and the waiting brings ultimate joy and peace. Numbing life’s pain will dull your joy. I’m an advocate for ALL that God has in store for us, that means experiencing every step in it’s full capacity. It sounds like your right on track! Trusting in God’s plan….I will pray.
Many prayers and welcome to the wonderful world of adoption.

Good Friday ;)
Hang in there Dad (and Mom – Julie!) What a wonderful Easter gift you will recieve! We will be praying for you, your family, and little Elijah John (as well as for his “birth family”) as you all journey down this new and exciting road!
