1 Samuel 1:27-28
"I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord."
The little boy we have loved since we first met his birth mother was born March 9 by emergency c-section. (He is fine. his birth mother is fine).
We cared for him along side her and left the hospital with him in our arms and he had our last name.
Then, at six days old, his birth mother called and said this was much harder than she expected. That she couldn't complete the adoption plan.
We placed her back in his arms.
He was ours for a short time, but we loved him none the less.
We named him Samuel.
He was one of the most beautiful babies I have ever seen and such a joy to care for.
I'm so glad I got to be his mama, even if it was only for six days.
I will share much more of the story, but I just had to start writing and start getting it all out.
Thanks for the prayers. We greatly need them.
