Attention, attention...this is important. This post isn't about me. It's about a friend.
J and I have a couple of friends who have been married for 13 years, together for 16. They tried to conceive for a while and were told by docs it was impossible...not virtually impossible, but literally impossible. That was a long time ago too. They've been bantering with the idea of adoption for a while now, but it never seems to be the right time....especially knowing the consequences and strain something like that is.
Apparently, God thought now was that time.
They received an email this past week from a friend in Georgia (I think - after we heard the news I forgot pieces - forgive me if I am not completely accurate on the story Mrs. South Carolina) about a woman who had a baby and didn't want it. They thought of Mr. and Mrs. South Carolina. The email essentially asked them if they wanted this child. Of course there are many legal parameters to get through and court is scheduled for today for the Grandmother to get temporary custody until an adoption can be arranged, as I understand it. My heart was bursting as this story came out of Mr. South Carolina's mouth! I couldn't believe what I was hearing.
So please send lots of prayers out to this wonderfully deserving couple that this will work out and they will finally get this blessing they have been waiting for for so long. They so deserve this...and this child would be blessed to have them. I asked her if it was okay to post this and she agreed...they just really need prayers right now for many things...things to go their way, keep their sanity, being ready financially, among a few I am sure.
We're sending you lots of love Mr. and Mrs. South Carolina! And I'll keep you posted when she posts me.
Prayers Bleaders....lots of prayers please!
