Put Off Long Enough

I have been putting off this post for as long as I could...

About a month and a half ago, we found out that Brandon had much more severe needs than previously thought.  After prayerful and frankly gut-wrenching deliberation, we realized that we are not the family that is equipped to give him what he will need.  We had to give back our referral request for Brandon. 

This does not change the fact that Brandon desperately needs and deserves a family of his own.  We are praying that God brings this about soon and we hope that those of you who read this and have blogs of your own would consider taking a minute to pray and advocate for Brandon.

We are moving forward with our plans to adopt and feel like God is asking moving our hearts to adopt Easton.  He will be 5 years old on October 30th and has CP.  I will add pictures soon, but you can see him on the following Reece's Rainbow link

I'm sure this was a tough decision! I just prayed for Brandon. I'm so glad you chose to still adopt -- Easton is a special little guy. He caught my eye some time ago. So glad he will have you for his family!

What a difficult decision to make! We will add Brandon's photo to our fridge--right next to Easton's photo--and pray for them both. I can't wait to see both boys in the families God has chosen for them.
