I'm reminded that adoption is not for the faintest of hearts. We let Malachi go yesterday and he was returned to his birthmother. It's really a long story involving legal stuff I don't understand but the birthfather is contesting the adoption and petitioning for custody of him and threatening to continue on unless she parents. She is young and scared and I think she is making the best decision she can with what she is faced with.
I really don't know how I'm going to move past this. We understood all the risks with Isaiah all along and just prepared for that but with this we were just blindsided. I NEVER, EVER held this child and thought for a second he wasn't mine to hold. I don't even know where to start other than just ask for your prayers.
I am also heartbroken. That's not fair for the birth father to do. Is he going to be a parent to Malachi? A true loving father? If not, then he has NO RIGHT to do what he has done, robbed a deserving pair of parents of their sweet baby boy. I'm angry, I'm sad, I'm bitter, I'm really mad. I wish there was something I could do. I will pray, because that's all I CAN do. I am praying that this man's heart turns, and that he realizes the good life his son has with you and Greg.
I can't believe that this is happening to you once again. I am so heartbroken for you and Greg! My prayers are with you, God knows the situation and he has a perfect plan. It is sooo hard to remember that when you are going through something so awful. I pray that God's will is that this boy is to be your's!

Kelly, I am so sorry. I am heartbroken for you and Greg. I can't even imagine what you are going through, yet again. I have been thinking of you both nonstop. I know you have been through a LOT - but I hope you have plans to try to adopt again someday? You two deserve a child and there's got to be one out there for you, I just know it. I will continue to pray for you. Please take time for yourself during this time.
I am so sorry to hear that you had to let your baby go. I cannot even imagine the heartache you have endured and are facing once again. I pray that you find peace with the situation and that your heart will be filled with joy in the future. I hope your arms are not empty for long.
