Decision


After much thought and prayer we have decided to not pursue another adoption. Our hearts are very raw and hurting right now, so the explanations don't come easy. We know that this is the best decision for our family as our girls needs ALL of us right now. We will take our time in mourning the loss of our precious boy, but we know that this is the right decision to make. God will take care of the healing and help us move along in life. I will take a short break to let my soul and mind truly believe that this is the best decision to be made at this time. Please pray that I can begin to understand why this has to happen this way and I will continue to trust my God. He loves me and wants only the best, I must believe this and help my family to heal.

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
