We were no longer "chosen"

Today was a sad and joyous day for us.

The precious baby girl was born. We don't know when.

She did not have Down Syndrome.

She was placed with a family who would pay much more money to adopt a "healthy" baby girl.

We thank God she has a family.

We wept for the baby we thought we were adopting.

A Dear precious friend had sent our baby girl a car seat to the agency for her to fly home in. From Florida to our home in MN.

We had her bag packed, waiting to go get her, at a moments notice.

The agency has all our money. We paid up-front. We are out thousands of dollars.

If that wasn't frustrating enough.

Yesterday we found out Tom's fingerprints for Adam Walsh had to be re-done- thus our Home Study cannot be complete without them. We did our Finger prints the 23rd of October, we thought after not hearing so long they had "passed". Four of us had to do them, we have not heard if the other 3 were accepted. This makes me mad.

We need a lot of prayers. Thank You (((HUGS)))

In the mean time we are all holding FIVE SUPER PRECIOUS BOYS close to our HEARTS!! What a GIFT from God they are!!


  1. Oh wow, that's a tough one. I am so sorry this happened. You are all in my thoughts :(

  2. Oh my. Sad. You know I understand. Loving a child you haven't met and then loosing them is so painful. God bless and help you through this and hug them boys. They're so precious!

  3. Oh Elizabeth, My heart just dropped for your loss. Yes, I'm thankful the baby has a family but was so praying that she would be YOUR baby. I am so sorry. Doesn't seem right at all that the agency would keep your money, esp. if another family is adopting her. That's not right.
    Praying God will give you all comfort . . . I know He already is because you know to take delight and comfort in your five new sons. I'll be praying for all of you. Love and lots of hugs!

  4. My heart weeps for you. It's so hard sometimes to understand God's plan. I'm so sorry and you will be in my prayers.

  5. I am so very sorry !!!! I don't understand why these things happen - but there IS a plan for you, and you will have your baby girl - just not this one :( Thinking of you all.

  6. My heart breaks for you and for the sadness of this situation. :'(

  7. (((((((great big gentle hugs)))))))

  8. This makes me sad for you but I'm glad she has a family. I can't imagine being out all of that money! There must be a baby girl out there for you. God bless.

  9. So sad for you and your family. I will keep you in my prayers.

  10. I'm so sorry :( Prayers for you all..... Blessings, Jennifer

  11. Oh Elizabeth, this is so sad for you. I am so sorry you are going through this hard time. Praying for you. ((((((Hugs back))))))

  12. Elizabeth, I know this might sound weird, but their asking you to adopt this baby when they thought she would have DS was a huge compliment--and them withdrawing the offer when they found she did not have DS was a huge compliment too. It means they know you are a very special family, and that your arms and hearts are open to receiving a baby in need of a home. Once they found out the baby did not have DS, the baby was no longer in need of a home. The family who now has a healthy "normal" little baby girl is fortunate--but so are you, because this little one must not have been your Belle, and whoever made this decision is keeping you in their back pocket, saving your family for when they have a child who no one else wants. Then they will offer the baby to you. And that sounds terrible, but what a testament to your heart for all people, and for your ability to see beauty and value in any child, no matter the labels.

    You are so beautiful.

    1. Oh my Blessed, you are making me cry! Thank you for your kind words. You are precious! (((HUGS)))
