  8. Oh Jen...I'm so sorry. This is the hardest part of adoption. It is so raw, painful and debilitating...BUT...I'm here to tell you that your heart will heal, you will move on and you will love another baby again. Big hugs! I would text you but I know right now, you just need your time alone. If you need a friend who gets it, message me. Love you friend.

  63. I'm so sorry. I really wasn't expecting this post. I told my husband about your story and I showed him the pictures from the hospital.

(((hugs)))

  72. Jenn,

    I'm Andrea and I have come over from Kelly's blog. My heart aches for you and your husband. As someone who has lost a child I can relate. A loss through adoption is no different and the hole in one's heart hurts so very deeply. I walked this very emotional road with a very dear friend just months ago.

    Many prayers going up for you and your husband.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I just started reading and following your blog. Im so very sorry to read this last post. that is very unfair. I really really hope one day you get your wee baby. So so sorry and hope all these comments can give you some help in this hard time. stay strong and look after each other, you are bound to get there. good things will happen. take care

    ReplyDelete
  76. Still thinking of you. I hope you're hanging in there.

    ReplyDelete
  77. This happened to us, too. It was one of the hardest moments of my life, and of my marriage. We went on vacation, turned off our cell phones and recharged emotionally. A few months later, we were matched again and although we were much more guarded, it worked! That HOPE is what kept us going through the pain and loss. Don't get discouraged; your baby IS OUT THERE waiting for you to find him or her. You never know how things will work out. Take some time to grieve. Stay close, lean on eachother and let people comfort you. Keeping you in thought. Hang in there.

    Best wishes :)

  79. I'm so sorry. Thinking of you and your family as you go through this.

  80. I am just heartbroken for you. We had a scare at the end of our adoption that things wouldn't work out and it was terrible and I felt how painful and grief stricken I would be if things fell through, so I can just imagine how devastated and angry you and your husband are.
    I am so sorry.

  81. My friend Kelly wrote a little note about coming over to give you support - and after reading this there is no way I couldn't. I know we don't know each other, and we haven't even found each other in this blogging world, but my whole heart goes out to you. I can't imagine how hard this is for you, but know I am another person here for you. I'm just so sorry. (((hugs)))

    ReplyDelete
  82. I don't know you, but I came here from another blog. Just wanted you to know that I'm praying for you and your husband. I cannot imagine how heart breaking this must be. Even if you're the type who believes everything happens for a reason and that all things work together for good, that belief doesn't make you feel better in times of crisis or loss. Take time to grieve and know that a lot of people are praying for you. I'm going to follow your blog, because I want to keep up with your journey through this. I hope that you're doing okay. It seems you have a lot of people thinking about you. Best of luck.

  98. it is with GREAT sadness that I'm commenting on this post. I've been following the story and wanted to comment in the past few days without knowing what to say.
    What I will say is that I am so sorry.
    You guys fully opened your hearts to a baby knowing the risks, and for that you are to be commended.
    Keep faith.
    Keep your heart open. Because your baby, whenever he or she comes, will love you for it.
    Much love & prayers.

  99. My heart is broken for you! I'm so so so sad that you got to fall in love with that sweet boy and have him yanked away! I haven't read your whole story and came over from Kelly's blog, but having suffered a failed adoption and having an empty fully ready nursery, my heart breaks over and over again for you. I'm sooo sooo sorry for your loss!

  101. I found you blog through another one and I am so sorry. We just adopted our son in September(Lifetime Adoption) and no matter how much his birthmom said she wanted us to parent, I was still so scared. Your time is near, but I know you are grieving theis baby and you have every right to. I hoping the right match comes soon.
