Another family has inquired about adopting “Jay.”
Our prayer is that he find a family and his God-given place in life, regardless of whether that life includes us. We’re not legally available to adopt him while in process to adopt Amelia, so of course we want other families to consider loving him forever.
I’ve felt so guilty about our relationship with Jay ever since we got our referral for Amelia. We are head-over-heels in love with Amelia, because we know she is designated to be ours. But what is the healthy emotional balance with Jay, who may or may not be adopted by another family?
I truly love and enjoy Jay. But I often feel anxious about him, wondering whether we’re all going to be hurt in this process… wondering whether I rely on Christ enough to have the love, strength, and wisdom I need to navigate this situation.
I know what I need. I need to fix my eyes on a God who is bigger than this situation, bigger than our life stories, bigger than any hopes Jay or our family may have. Please pray that we can rest in the love of the God who writes each page of history.
