The court opened today and I found out that our court date is postponed for two weeks. My first reaction was panic. I want my baby here for Thanksgiving. Well, that was my timing. I realize we can make all these plans but at the end of the is in God's timing. So I trust God and know that He will continue to watch over Wynston. Today I saw on the Today Show, Matt Lauer interviewed this lady who adopted a child and she had five biological children. She had this child for 18 months and decided to return the child because she said the child didn't bond with her wasn't a good fit. Well, do you return your biological child if your child doesn't bond in what you think is the appropriate amount of time... of course not. You stick with that child through thick and thin. I know that it is not going to be all roses when Wynston comes home and I am prepared for those trying moments. One would think after five children, the woman should have known that. I won't judge this woman because I am not that position. But, I would like for everyone to know that just because you hear one unfortunate story doesn't mean all end that way. You have to remember why you chose to adopt. I hope that this doesn't change anyone's mind that is considering adopting because we have to remember...."I will not leave you as orphans." If you are reading this, you are truly blessed therefore, be a blessing to someone. OK- my sermon has ended. Thanks for being a support.
