Our circumstances have not changed.
... birthmother K remains committed to her last minute plan to parent. Neither K nor her parents have contacted us since the day before the baby was born. And today we were told that both attorneys are essentially closing the case and settling accounts payable. Blah.
Our circumstances haven't changed, but neither has our God.
"I the Lord do not change..." (Malachi 3:6)
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." (Hebrews 13:8)
A "head knowledge" that God doesn't change doesn't take away the ache in our hearts for the babies we have loved and lost. Not at all.
But with each passing day we are renewed in the hope that our infinite, eternal, and unchangeable God has called our family to welcome our daughter through adoption- and in HIS perfect timing she will be home. We know that this journey is not about finding "a baby"- it is the path to our daughter that the Lord loves more than I do and already knows by name.
We want to say a most sincere "thank you" to all of you. We have been overwhelmed by your prayers, your hugs, your kind messages and your care. You have helped sustain us, through the love of Christ, like only the body of Christ can. We can't imagine our life or this journey without Him or you!
We wait expectantly upon the Lord; trusting and believing that He is already doing immeasurably more than we could ever ask or imagine.
