Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

Devastated

Griffin Allen Haughery was born yesterday (Oct. 18th) at 5:04pm. He is a healthy and content baby. We instantly fell in love with all 10 lbs and 2 ounces of him. Unfortunetly, 15 min. before he was to be discharged to come home with us the birth mother changed her mind. We are so lost and undone again.

Oh Lord Jesus, please comfort, please heal
those dark broken places our souls only feel
pain and confusion and grief for what was,
tears for what can no longer be.
Bring hope to us, Lord, we see nothing but sorrow.
We need a new vision for life, for tomorrow.
Grant us, Oh God, the faith we once held
so easily we trusted, but now it's so hard.
Bring comfort Lord Jesus, your presence is sweet.
If we can't be there with you, there in your street,
then sustain us, our Lord, our good merciful Savior.
Bring comfort, Lord Jesus, help our hearts not accuse.
You are good, always good, there's no shadow with you.
You are good, always good, there's no shadow with you.

I could not believe what I read tonight. Again, I've never met you, talked to you, emailed you, or anything like that...yet I feel for you like I would feel for my best friend. This just seems so unfair. My thoughts are with you.

Oh, Emily!
This is so very sad and gut wrenching; to leave the hospital empty-armed!
When I read the first two sentences of your post, I thought the title was a mistake...but it wasn't.
What a handsome name you have picked out!

Dear Jesus,
Please comfort the Allens and Haugherys. Please bind up their broken hearts and heal their crushed spirits. Please let them know that You have not forsaken them. Please give them strength to go forward and to realize this dream of a baby. Please give them this desire of their hearts. Oh, Lord, we just don't understand, but we continue to cling to You knowing that You are able in any situation. Please work out Your perfect plan for their lives, to Your Glory, Lord.

Still Praying!

Speechless...no words. Saying I'm sorry seems so insignificant! But I really am sorry this has happened, Emily!

I think the post title says it all...

James and Emily - my heart breaks for you.

I'm not sure if this would be right for the timing but this came to mind and I hope that it does bring encouragement.

God is working for your good although we may not see it. While we don't understand his ways, we can without a doubt know his heart towards you both - a heart bent on bringing good to you always.

Psalm 23:6
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life

hugs,
Sara
