Our hearts are broken. How could something that seemed so right and so meant to be fall apart so easily? What was the purpose in this? The pain is pretty overwhelming.
Yet, we know that God has a plan. He always has a plan, and His plan hasn't been thwarted.
We will grieve. We will heal. We will forever have a daughter that never came to live in our home, but will always live in our hearts.
We will move forward. Our adoption journey is not over. We will fight the fear and move forward and pray that we find the little girl meant to live with us here in our home in America. We will move forward, but we will never completely move on. That little girl with huge brown eyes and the longest eyelashes I've ever seen will always hold a part of our hearts.
Please pray for all of us as we navigate these very confusing and painful waters. Say a special prayer for Andrew as he tries to comprehend what is happening. It's hard as an adult. I cannot imagine the confusion from the standpoint of a child. Please pray that God brings us a daughter that will live and grow as part of our family. We haven't given up the dream of growing our family through adoption.
We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support these past few days. We thank each and everyone of you for holding us up in prayer.
