Broken Lives

Two months ago my husband and I prayed about a new life coming into this world. We knew the mother of our grandson had had issues in the past with caring for her kids.  We did not want to see our grandson end up in the system so we prayed and opened ourselves to be available to whatever God put before us. Two days later we received a call from CPS, requesting us to take him home with us when he's discharged.

It's been two months, since we brought this precious baby home from the hospital. After many sleepless nights, feedings, cuddling, lots of precious smiles and a few first coos, we have found out the devastating news that he is not our biological grandson.

I write this news with my heart breaking. This little boy has stolen my heart as I've poured every waking moment into loving and caring for him.

I ask for prayers for our son as he processes through this news. I pray that God blesses his father's heart with many children to love.

But my heart breaks even more now for this precious fatherless child. I ask for prayers of God's protection for him, that whatever the "system" does is in his best interest, that his physical being and his heart is protected and most of all that God's will for him be done.

Thank you to a dear friend for reminding me of God's word....

Isaiah 41:10-13

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
“Behold, all those who were incensed against you
Shall be ashamed and disgraced;
They shall be as nothing,
And those who strive with you shall perish.
You shall seek them and not find them—
Those who contended with you.
Those who war against you
Shall be as nothing,
As a nonexistent thing.

For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand,

Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’
