With a heavy heart

I found out tonight that some friends of our received bad news. We knew the Bradford's back while we were in school and attended the same church until their move to TX a few years back. They have struggled with infertility for a long time, trying various methods to conceive. They decided to go with adoption and were placed with a family back in the fall. This last week they drove to a Iowa to await the birth of their son. The due date passed and there was no progress. Then yesterday they found out that the birth parents decided to keep the child. There are no words to describe what sadness and anger they are feeling at this moment. Please say a prayer for them. That the Lord will wrap them in His arms and give them peace and comfort that only He can provide. Pray that they will not be discouraged and will know that there is a better plan out there for them. Thank you for lifting them up before the Lord.
