Today I must mourn the loss of my baby.
November 22, 2013 we welcomed a 2 month old foster baby into our house, for seemingly 1 week. Right before Thanksgiving. We ended up celebrating with him as he turned 3 months, 4 months, 5 months.....and ONE YEAR old! We celebrated through two Thanksgivings, and Two Christmas'. He has brought our family so much joy, love, growth and bonding.
Friday, January 9, 2015, we are forced to say goodbye. Even though we know not to expect anything, and should always be prepared for them to move back, we are not ready. When are you ever ready to let go of someone you love?
The greater the love, the greater the loss.
I have loved on this child with all my heart, therefore I am filled with deep sorrow.
Job 1:21b.... The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.
