Our match left just as quickly as it came. We received a call from our social worker last night, and Q has decided that she wants to parent her baby. This is her right and it always has been. Her role has been expectant mom with the intention of placing her baby for adoption with us. Though we were hopeful, Ryan and I knew going into this that it wasn't a done deal until the papers were signed after the birth. We also knew that Q had been going back and forth on this over the last couple of weeks. We are very thankful that she came to this conclusion before we met the baby at the hospital. Q has her reasons, and we don't harbor any bitter feelings toward her. I trust that you, as our supporters, will respect her decision as well.
Ryan and I are doing ok. Though, this is a bit of a set back in our plans, it is still God's Plan A. We are not depressed and we do not feel like we are at square one all over again. There will be another birthmom and another baby. This particular one was not for us. We know that we are meant to be parents to one special little soul, and she is not in Q's belly after all. God is still good and in control. We will continue to wait on Him. Please keep us in your prayers. <3
