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.

Today at around 11 we got another call from our case worker saying that the birth mother changed her mind again. So tomorrow at one they will come and take Griffin and he will return to his birth family. We are in shock. This last month has been such a joy and we adore our little guy. Please pray.

Oh, Emily, I am so sad to read this, but know that Griffin has been SOOOOO blessed by his time with you, no matter how short. God brought you into his life to care for him and protect him, and you have done exactly that. I am praying that the birth mother changes her mind again, but know that you have already done so much for this precious little boy by giving him the best possible start in his life.

No words ! Won't risk a phone call ar this time as I can't even grasp the enormity of your sadness. It is not to be understood why these things happen. Will never forget Griffin and his brief stay in our family. Not fair that your joy has been so short lived. God surely has other plans for such wonderful parents as you and James, I pray !!!!Love from your Marmie
