Prayers for Jacob please!
And then our Dear Sister in Christ saw him last August. And he was the size of Noah 9 years old. And he was terrified of our Sister, so they took 2 photos of him trying to escape her and the staff quickly took him away.
No one knew where he was or saw him again until the fall. Another Dear Sister in Christ saw him. She said he could stand!
Then again in March, 2 more precious Sisters in Christ saw him. And he looked well. But always the look of fear in his eyes. It broke my heart.
When Jacob left with Tom, his Baba was not there to help us in any way with insight. Moses' Baba did not see him off either. Tom was told Moses caused trouble there. (Are you kidding me??) And Noah's file had listed some negative behaviors. But Noah's Baba who saved his life was there to see him off and she cried. She is precious. She really LOVES him. His behaviors are only self abuse, he is gentle as can be and now happy!
Jacob is a beautiful little boy and we think they may have liked him. Maybe he was treated a little better, by someone, most likely someone he loved.
But now he is terrified of everyone he sees. He is grieving heavily. And even though he is a gentle boy. He is frightened terribly about his new circumstances.
So he does not want to eat. :o(
Like a baby, we woo him to LOVE us in return. Tom is trying to win his trust. He misses everything about his home of 7 years.
My youngest birth baby is 8. What if this had been my Isaiah. Oh my heart breaks for everything this precious boy has had to go through.
Please pray for this little boy's wounded heart. And that he trust Tom or Gabe enough to eat more than a tiny bowl of oatmeal.
tomorrow more photos!
