1:31pm…”She chose the other family.”
Three weeks waiting.
Twenty days of dreaming about meeting our baby.
We felt “K” was THE situation.
I watched my husband and I’s hearts, minds and lives be filled with anticipation and love for this expectant mama and baby.
Last week we found out we were one of the two families she had narrowed her decision down to. We were over the moon.
We prepared that the decision would more than likely be made within days of the baby being born. There was no way to protect and guard our hearts, it was too close.
We were completely “in.”
This was the first situation we have seen that felt right, but someone’s heart is always broken and for this situation it had to be ours.
Adoption is messy, hard and confusing.
Our consultant reminded us that when we hold our baby, we will be grateful she chose the other family because it led us to our baby.
I can promise you this… tonight I will cry and take a few moments to process these emotions.
But even still…I will always care for and respect “K”. I will continue to pray for her, her baby and the adoptive parents in the coming days.
They have left a deep imprint on my heart over the last three weeks.
This was not our decision, it was hers and it’s a big one. She needed to take her time and she needed to feel confident in her decision.
We feel God on the move and we pray that we will be renewed with clarity and hope. This was not our baby.
