As I stated before, this is a very emotional thing for everyone involved – including the birth mother.

Currently, the birth mom is having some "letting go" issues and is saying she does not want to sign the consent tomorrow and instead wants to wait until Little Bug is released from the hospital. She is not thinking rationally at this point. The lawyers are not certain if she is just wanting to delay things or if she is having second thoughts about her adoption plan for this baby.

As you can well imagine tonight has been extremely hard and very emotional and the most important thing to do at this point is to PRAY:

1. Pray that God will give the birth mom the peace, strength and courage to put her pen to that paper TOMORROW MORNING and sign. Pray whatever reservations she is feeling at this time will be taken away and she will remember that she wants this baby with us.

2. Pray with the counselors, physiologists and lawyers who will be meeting with the birth mom tomorrow. Pray for wisdom and discernment and that they will know the things birth mom needs to hear to be able to process the emotions she is feeling tonight and then sign the papers.

3. Pray for our hearts tonight and that we will be able to rest. This is so incredibly hard. As soon as we learned of all this we started the prayer chains immediately. We called several people to come to our house and we, along with those people, spent close to 2 hours praying. Scriptures were prayed and read and everyone just poured their hearts out to our mighty God asking Him to do another miracle.

My specific prayer was that the birth mom would even tonight call the lawyers and say lets do it asap tomorrow morning. 

And now I call on all the prayer warriors who read this blog to pray! And if you would, spread the word, please.

Thank you for praying. I will update as often as I can tomorrow.

My heart is at peace but my nerves are on edge not knowing what tomorrow brings.

  1. Praying with you guys for a miracle tomorrow morning. I pray that this will be taken care of first thing tomorrow. Praying for peace, grace, mercy, strength, courage, comfort, and joy for all involved.

    “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine!” Eph 3:20

  2. I am praying for you and the birth mother. As a Birthmother myself I completely understand where she is coming from if she would like to talk to someone I am happy for her to email me.


  3. Praying for God’s peace to surround you guys tonight and to touch the birth mother’s heart. Psalm 46

  4. Praying, of course. Is there something wrong with Little Bug that is not allowing her to be discharged on Friday?

  5. 1 Kings 3 keeps coming on my heart. As your blog reader, it’s safe for me to assume YOU are Little Bug’s Mother. If this is God’s will, may the birth mother see it clearly.

    This is my prayer for all involved.

    “3Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. “

    I can’t imagine how hard this is for all of you.

    As I read your post the first verse that came to my mind was the same as Cammi…

    "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." Eph 3:20-21
