:::Sigh:::: the adoption fell through today. The baby was born on Sunday and the birthmother had me come in to watch and be with him while he was born, then we had him to ourselves all day Sunday. She seemed so sure in her decision. On Monday the birthfather's dad offered them a large chunk of money to keep the baby and today they decided to get married and raise the baby themselves. We are sad and feeling a little betrayed, I just wish that if she felt this uncertain about everything that she wouldn't have acted so sure and had us be such a big part of her life and of the baby's. Anyways, we're fine, we're just going to take a while to regroup and heal and figure out where we go from here. We'll probably take a bit of a break from people, so please don't be offended if we don't answer the phone, etc. for a while. Emails are fine and the messages that we've gotten have really helped us feel better and loved. Thanks for all the support and love that we've received, it helps more than you know.
So, keep us in mind and tell people that we're "back on the market" for a baby who needs an awesome family.
Love you all.
Suzanne

I cannot imagine how devastating this has been for your family. This is my worst fear with being the adoption process myself. I feel sorry for that baby who may have had a different life with you wonderful people as parents. Sometimes it is so hard to understand the Lord's ways and how the agency of others affects his plans. I hope that the Lord is with you and that you are able to feel peace at this time.

You are an awesome family and the right baby will make it into your arms. It's hard not to be in control of other people's choices when you wish you could. I'm sure Heavenly Father is heart broken too! We love you!

Suzanne, we are here for you if there is anything we can do. Even if it's a shoulder to cry on. Sometimes it's hard to see what we are supposed to learn from the lessons God sends our way, but he does have a plan for us all.
