Elizabeth delivered this beautiful baby boy into the world yesterday. Isn't he perfect? They've named him Telenken after her father.
My heart is so conflicted. I hate being in this place, of not knowing if he's ours and hating that if he does become ours, it's a loss to her. Elizabeth has told me that she would like to keep a boy, since family has taken her older two and they placed Fire with us. There are so many other factors in the decision though, like what her husband and her mother want, that it's not as simple as you might think it is. Adoption is a terrible and a wonderful thing. A blessing for one family means a loss to another.
he is such a beautiful baby. and i understand all too well that something that might make our life more full and sweet means another family is losing something huge. i pray God will give her wisdom and peace about whatever they decide. and that He will walk with you and your sweet family as you wait.ReplyDelete
Thanks Maggie! He looks so much like Fire at that age... And thanks for your prayers- our hearts could use them and so, I'm sure, could Elizabeth's.Delete
Precious boy! Praying for you and her, Amber!ReplyDelete
Thanks Shannon! I feel so torn about this. I know it will work out in His best way but these in-between parts are so hard.Delete
