............................................

I mentioned we were adopting and Griffin was born yesterday at 5:04 pm. He is the most precious thing. I fell in love the second they put him in my arms. Unfortunately, 15 min before he was to be discharged to come home with us we found out the birth mom changed her mind. There is nothing to say. We are devastated.

I am terribly sorry to read the news, Emily. It doesn't seem right that it is allowed to happen. I am praying for you and James.

There's not much to say, but I am and will be praying like crazy for you tonight.

Emily, I'm so sorry. I've been following your blogs for about a year and praying for you and James... I've been specifically praying for you this week, as I know so many others are. I'm continuing to lift you up. There are no words.

i don't even know what to say. I stalk your blog and have been praying for you guys since you first posted about the adoption.
I will continue to be praying for you now!

I'm so sorry Emily and so sad. We were all so excited and happy for you and looking forward to the new addition to the family.
Perhaps the mom will change her mind again when the realities of this new responsibility become clear to her.
...Regardless, you're heavily on our hearts and in our prayers.
love,
Viv

Emily, I am so sorry to hear, I found your site through a friend of a friend, and have been following your journey for over a year now. Your family is in my prayers. May God lift you up through this, and led you to find comfort and peace in Him.
