Adoption Update...

I guess I have been avoiding this update post...but it is time to let it out.

We finally heard back from our social worker and the birthmother who had it narrowed down to us and one other couple picked the other couple. The reason we were given is that she felt a deeper connection with the other couple. We were expecting this, but that doesn't mean that my heart doesn't break a little when I type these words.

I have been copping fairly well...keeping myself busy with new Jazz It Up inventory and work at the boutique. It's funny because I guess you could say that Jazz It Up has become "my baby". I hope things are going well with all of my blogger friends...keep me in your prayers and as always I will do the same for you. :-)

I'm so sorry, Rachel! Even though you suspected to hear that, it is always harder to actually hear it. I know it is going to work out so wonderfully for you!! You're definitely in my prayers!

I'm sorry, too. I think it probably wasn't meant to be this time. Your time will come. Take care.

I am so sorry, Rachel! Maybe this isn't the right time and that God is still preparing and looking for the best baby for a best Mom like you. Time will come.

You will always be in my prayers.

Hugs,

I'm so sorry to hear that Rachel. I can't imagine how hard it must have been for you and your husband. Keep praying. God doesn't say "NO" but "Later" when He wants the best for us.

This hurts my heart...I know it's cliche but when that time comes for you, it will certainly be worth the wait!!!
