update: more like another turn on the rollercoaster

UPDATE on foster to adopt status.......

I just got off the phone with Baby J's foster mom and she told me of some new developments.  Apparently there is a new relative that is stepping up and wants to try and adopt J.  Tomorrow is an important day regarding that and we'll know more after tomorrow so I'm asking you all to PRAY.  Ultimately J's best interest is what we care about but it's interesting that this relative has known about J since he was born and is just NOW stepping up.  In my mind that doesn't seem like a good situation but really I have no idea....we know nothing about this person. 

Obviously our hearts are already in this and we are very sad about this new direction but we're committed to just praying our way through this.  This is not a surprise to God.  He already knows who J will end up with and I just pray that it's us. 

I really believe that God led us to J.  He literally put him in my lap back in March.  Prayer does powerful things and this journey is completely in His hands. 

On a happy note, we still get to keep J overnight this coming Sunday to Monday and we're really excited! :) Precious time to love on this little boy that has captured our hearts. 

I will update as I know more but thanks in advance for praying with us!


  1. I can only imagine the emotions you must be feeling! I love your perspective and trust and will pray for your family through this.

  2. Oh Marie, i am praying that you will find peace in this whole situation. God's timing is definitely not ours, but it is surely perfect.
