Worst case scenario isn't hypothetical anymore: the baby's birth parents changed their minds. Their emotions were too strong, their logic not so much. The adoption case worker just left, and Will's gone. We're hurting but not bitter. We knew there would be risks. Now there's an empty spot where a beautiful life used to be. The hole that he left in our lives will grow smaller with time, but now it's raw and aching. However, God has provided and will continue to provide in ways we can only imagine. The only thing I ask is that you join us in taking this heartbreak to the Father of all comfort. Pray for Will's safety; pray for his heart; pray for his family of birth to dig deep and work hard to be able to provide for what he needs in all areas of his sweet little life; pray for us to recover. Just pray.
