A Little One Update...

Well, in yet another change of events,
it's looking like the Little One will be reunified with her mama.

It's bittersweet.

We were devastated when we got the phone call that things had changed.
We were told we were on the road to adoption.
She's been in our family for over a year now.
It's going to be a sad, sad, sad, sad, sad day when we have to say goodbye.
(Could even be before the end of the year.)

But at the same time,
we are happy for her mama.
She's worked really hard for this.
We are praying for her success.

At least for now, we feel at peace about this.
We believe that our children are not our own.
They belong to the Lord.
We trust that He will continue to protect her.
He loves her more than we ever could.
She's a miracle and I know she has big things in store for her future! 

We'd love your prayers for her and for her mama.
This transition will not be easy on anyone involved.
And prayers for Alice.
We've been talking to her about it,
but we're not sure how much she's really understanding.
We're trusting God is preparing her little heart as well.

From a year ago...
We adore that little girl.

ugh. My heart hurts for you all and I can NOT imagine the emotions you must be walking through. We will be praying for all involved and that God will give you peace that surpasses understanding and that He will be with your sweet family. We will be mindful to pray that little one and her momma will have a successful transition.

I'm sorry, I know you were hoping she would join your family. We will pray it's a smooth transition for everyone. I'm so thankful for families like yours that open their hearts and homes to these children! Clementine is adorable, btw:)
