sad (nothing to do with weightlost)

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

I am feeling sad today. We are presently in the process of adopting children. We were offered 3 beautiful children from the same family a few months ago. We had them for a weekend a few weeks ago and everything went very well. We were just waiting to see if the baby (18 months old) had neurological problems and we were informed last week that he would most likely be a dependant child all his life. We are not ready to get involved with all of them. We told them if they could find a home for the 3 of them together it would be okay, but if they decided to separate the 2 oldest from the baby, we would take the 2 oldest (6 and 7 years old). We know that it would be the best for the children to be together. But we were just told that their might be some family that are willing to take all of them. I am glad for the children, but still sad on the other end because I got attached to them. Anyway, it is not a done deal with the other family, but still feel sad at the present time. I am still trying to stay positive and I know we will be offered other children if we don't get those one.

I just had to write it down!

have a good day everyone.

    Such a hard decision,but it's better than resenting the baby later on.

    i don't have children myself, but i can imagine how difficult it is to make a decision to take 3 children together, one having neurological issues. i applaude you for wanting to adopt and, even though i don't pray regularly, i do believe the right children will come into your life when you least expect it.
