We are in the throes of another devastating loss in this adoption process. Yesterday morning, we got a call from our doctor about a little one we thought would complete our family, that left us brokenhearted for us and even more brokenhearted for her and the severe reality of her needs (needs we sadly cannot meet). I don't have the words to express our sorrow or the words express the pain of grasping for hope. Just as the rain falls outside this morning, we feel the rain of sorrow washing over us, but we know the rain won't fall forever. Maybe your heart needs these words today, too.
Come rejoice now, O my soul For his love is my reward Fear is gone and hope is sure Christ is mine forevermore
Even in our grief, we know that hope still wins.
