sad news........

Recently I just signed us up for a online forum through Bethany, so we can post things along with other people who are adopting, in particular from Ethiopia. It has been such a great thing to be a part of, and helps the time pass as we are waiting for our referral. Just this past week we learned that one of the little infant boys who was just referred to a family just passed away. If you are reading this post, please pray for the family who just lost the little one, and never had a chance to meet him. All that is really known is that he had diarhea, was taken to the hospital, then released, but then taken back to the hospital, but died on the way. My heart goes out to this family for their loss. On top of that, 2 more little boys, one who was just referred is in the hospital for what seems to be the same thing. I can't even imagine this either, and makes me a little scared for our own little one, or for others who are yet to be referred. Makes it even harder to wait, when all we want to do is go over there and get our little one, just to know he/she is safe, and so that we can take care of him/her. We are still hoping our referral comes very soon, but at this point I am not sure that this would be something to cause more waiting on our part or not. Again, please, if you read this post, please be lifting these families, and the little ones who are in the hospital, and the ones who are to be adopted soon, in prayer; that there would be healing and protection. My heart wants to see the little ones healed, and united with their families, along with others without any setbacks. But then again, going into this, we knew unknown things happening was a possibility..........
