Tomorrow we will hear Matthew's birth father's voice for the first time. We have a conference call scheduled tentatively for 2:00 pm PST. The lawyers will also be on the line. According to our attorney, this is an opportunity for the BF to tell us his side of the story. We will listen and offer him reassurance that his son is being well cared for while the state works out his permanent custody.
Specifically, pray that he would have a softening of his heart after speaking with us. Pray that we would be able to adequately handle anything he might throw at us and that we would be able to convey our love for his son in a non threatening way. Pray that our toddler would not interrupt our conversation. And, as always, please pray for Matthew and that whatever is best for his future would ultimately prevail.
Please tell anyone and everyone you know who might lift us up in prayer.
