We just received word that the teenager who had chosen Tom’s sister and her husband to adopt her baby girl, who was due to be born any day, has changed her mind and will keep the child. We’re crushed because Noreen and David are wonderfully equipped to be parents; because we had already accepted this baby into our hearts; because… there are so many reasons. This just hurts. I understand the bond she feels with the baby. I understand the bond they feel with the baby.
Please pray for Noreen and David. Please pray for the child that they will receive into their family when the time is right. Please pray for the young woman who will now keep and raise her baby girl, giving thanks for her choice of giving the child life.
