case closed

We got a letter in the mail that from the Department of Human Services that they had closed our adoption case. It was a sad moment and oh so disappointing. Unfortunately though, I know that it is for the best for now. I don't have the energy required to deal with another child. The ones I have are relatively drama-free except on a few days, and we like it that way.

It is so disappointing, though. Luke especially was bummed as he was still holding out hope of us getting him a little sister. I told him he'd just have to wait until he could have his own kids.........YEARS from now!

However, we know that God knows best.

I go back to the dr. in Charleston on Tuesday. I had some lab work done, and things look a little worse which probably rules out lupus, but still leaves us in the dark as to what is wrong. So, I'll keep you posted.


  1. Oh Patty, I am so sorry. :( I was just thinking about you as I have a friend who has just begun fostering (15 month old twin boys!). Praying that you find answers for your health problems soon and that God will give you peace about this decision.

  2. So sorry to hear this. Praying the doctors will find answers.
    Keep up the God work.

  3. Hope all goes well, you'll be in my prayers.
