Adoption Update

There's a good ending to this situation, not exactly what we were hoping for, but a good ending none the less.

This baby was born to a lesbian lady. The pregnancy was a bitter reminder of unfaithfulness in her partnership. She thought the father was black but this little girl is light-skinned. The lesbian's partner is very controlling and was somehow kept unaware of the pregnancy until the birth. This surprise was very unwanted; it's remarkable she survived.

As it turns out, we were back-ups to a family who had already been working with an adoption lawyer. This is who the hospital contacted with the urgent need. If they could not raise the money needed by today we would adopt the child. We are delighted to learn that although they couldn't pay the bill, their church will. So it appears that God has called out this child and for that we are very thankful.

We are also thankful for your prayer support and look forward to what our Faithful Father has in store for us.

Thank you for keeping us posted with the Lord's answer to this particular prayer request.

I am still praying for the child that will be added to your family.

Blessings to all of you.
