Somehow, someway, God was preparing me for this. I'd even thought about what to post on this blog if it happened. But now that's it's here, I can't remember what I had planned to say.
We lost Riley.
He was taken into foster care by relatives. The good news is that he DOES have a home now, kind of. At least he has family that cares about him enough not to leave him in an orphanage. But he was not meant to be Our Son.
This has always been a possibility, nothing is ever certain until your court date. Even if we had been in country and met Riley, any member of his family could have come forward to claim him up until our court date.
I just have to remind myself that this is not a surprise to God. He knew this was coming and He has a plan.
Please pray for Rob and I as we try to figure out what to do next. We still plan to adopt but we'll need to choose a different child. Right now there's about 15 different kids I want to scoop up, so how do I choose??
