I am still praying strong for you.
Praying hard, especially for peace in this storm.
Loving, praying, and crying with and for you. JV
I am praying for you all. Including the birth father in the hopes he too will see what is best for Matthew!
God has carried you through everything so far, He will be sufficient for everything yet to come. In my flesh, this wasn't what I was hoping for, but like you, I know God is in control. Continuing to pray...J
Oh, Lori! My heart sank when I read this. We know that God is in control of Matthew's life and that God is bigger than all of our fears. I am praying praying praying for you guys! I didn't want to hear that, but now we wait to see what happens.Love & Hugs,TRISH
Will keep praying! Love you guys.
continuing to pray, and not just for you but the birth father as well, that yes, he will have wisdom for what is best for Matthew. (or come to his senses and drop this insanity!)hugs
Praying for a reality check for this guy and for peace and wisdom for you all as you move forward.
Oh, hon, that's not what I was hoping for, even though I know this is not in our control. Hugs.
crying and praying for you.
We are bathing you in our prayers. Love, Steven and Shannon
We are down on our knees for you. Stay strong - God Bless.
Lori, I am so sorry to hear that news. We will continue to pray that Matthews best interests prevail and also that our Lord would keep you and Troy strong during this trial. God is much bigger than all of this.Our love to all of you,Linda and Doug
i have no words...i am praying. hard.
A plus: at least you now know who is the biological father, and will have access to medical data if needed in the future. Also, if you raise Matthew, you will be able to honestly answer the question of whether or not he was wanted by his bio parents. Won't having the answers be better for him than not knowing who his bio father was? That his bio-mother knew who his father was, instead of "could of been a number of men..." A mysterious "could be anyone" answer is not nearly as satisfying as a name, and a specific reason why he wasn't able to be a parent.Just some thoughts that you may have already considered. Doesn't change what you have to go through to keep Matthew, but perhaps it is a positive part of the puzzle of "why".
Don't worry, God is on your side. He knows that your intentions are good. And He will guide you til the end. :)
