I am pretty bummed right now. I wish I could have the optimism as my husband at this time, but things are not looking good for our potential adoptions. Our first birthmom does not want us in the room with her and the baby after delivery. Big red flag and change of heart after wanting us to be in the delivery room and be the first to hold the baby, including her desire not to hold the child! She has not called me for rides or anything in a week and a half now. Not like her.

The other potential mom has not picked up the family profiles from the Fed-Ex office! They have been sitting there for a week now. I am not too sure how to interpret this, but my first thought is she is not serious about making an adoption plan for her child anymore. She is to go to court on Tuesday, so maybe she is wanting to gain her son back.

Please keep us in your prayers. I feel hurt and taken advantage of. I feel like God is putting this bait out for us to see if we are really trusting Him, and then pulling it back in. I am not liking this and ready to be a mom!

HI Amy- We're thinking about you too. I'm sure this is all very hard.

Philipians 4:6-7 (The Message)

Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.

I have wondered how a heart could handle this. I know this is extremely trying on you. Praying for the situation as a whole.
