Sad news.....

We are sad to report that we lost our referral. This occurred due to circumstances beyond our control and beyond the control of AWAA. We continue to trust that God's hand is on us through this process and that we will be matched with our son soon. We pray for the child that we thought we'd be adopting. We pray that he is in the best possible situation and we continue to prayerfully wait on God's perfect timing for our family.
We want to reassure families with referrals that our situation is highly unusual and not likely happen to other families.
We were told that there aren't any toddler boys currently available for adoption so we wait.......
