Going ahead with the Home Study..

..After talking with the social worker there really isn't much that could be refunded because she is almost done with our home study. So we are gonna finish it since it will be good for two years. If we got another call we would be ready.

We are still so sad about losing Bradshaw but last night we prayed for him, his mom and that he has a good life. We are not at all mad at the birth mom. From what I heard the birth father also wants her to keep the baby so I just pray they can be a good family to Bradshaw and that he grows up to know and love God. Yes, we are still calling him Bradshaw, we are pretty sure we wont use that name again, that is his name as far as we are concerned.

Dean said he is really feeling like we should foster, maybe even children a little older. The bottom line is, this is our ministry, God has given us a heart for Orphans so we know he will use this to draw us closer to Him and he will guide us where to go next.

He gave me Psalms 146 and It still holds true.

..2 I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. 3 Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save. 4 When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing. 5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God, 6 the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them— the LORD, who remains faithful forever. 7 He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free...

Praying for you.
It's hard to understand things & God's infinite wisdom, but we have to rely on our faith to comfort us.

Again, you guys are in my prayers!
