...the uses of adversity...

...i'm still trying to figure it out.

thank you for the prayers.  we have felt them. 

we were blessed to come in contact with a sweet birth mother a couple months ago.  

she brought us hope and light when we felt like it had ceased to exist.  (after losing our sweet baby k.)

a sweet little boy was born yesterday.  we love him.  we wanted nothing more than to give him a good home.

however, his sweet mother decided to parent. 

prayers are needed for so many. 

keep this precious little guy and his brave mother in your prayers.

and please, if you can, a prayer for me and studly. 

 

our hearts are broken.  our souls are weary.

aaaahhh! I am so sorry! How much can a person take? I wish I had any comforting words for you. But all I can think of is life is so unfair. There will be prayers for you most definitely.

I think it says a lot about your character that the words you choose to describe her were sweet, even though you are really hurting. I just wish it didn't have to turn out like this. Praying for you.

Kenna...
My heart aches with yours at every post. You are an amazing lady and far stronger than most people need to be. There is something more in store for you. He would not leave you without some fantastic purpose.

Oh Kenna. I am so sorry you are going through this. It breaks my heart for you. PLEASE let me know when you want to talk. I love you! God loves you. And your babies love you. They're coming. It's just taking a while for them to get here.

Heather said...

Love and prayers for all.

My heart is breaking for you.

Brenley said...

My heart so breaks for you! I will be adding you to my prayers. As well as this baby boy and his mother.

Josh and Kandice said...

Wow Kenna. I just don't know if I could endure all that you two have. You are amazing. I'm so sorry. You'll be in my prayers and so will the baby boy and his mom. I love you.

You're a better person than I am sister (but I guess I've always known that). All day I've been having to supress my anger and resentment. You are meant to do amazing things. Things that I lack the courage to even dream of doing.

Angie said...

Oh my goodness Kenna!! I'm so SO sorry! You are always in my prayers. Sending lots of hugs your way.

My sweet Kenna,

I don't know how to buoy you up. I wish I did. You deserve every and all happiness this world has to offer. You have not been forgotten. I promise. Your Heavenly Father is aware of you and loves you. Rolls and Jam are headed your way stat.

I love you. More than Mucho.
Kristin

Erin said...

I'm so sorry. You and Josh epitomize endurance and tenacity even when it feels like a broken heart cannot be crushed into yet a million more pieces. I love you girl.

Jeanne said...

Kenna, I know you don't know me, but I've been praying for you, and will continue to do so. I am so sorry. So very sorry.

Rebecca said...

I know you don't know me, I recently stumbled across your blog and now I'm hooked. I'm so sorry for your heartbreak and I'll keep you in my prayers.

....I can't imagine.... We mourn for your extreme losses. Tim and I are praying extra hard for you and Josh. We are devastated for you both.
I know there is nothing I can say and nothing I can do other than pray, to make it better.
Know that I love you dearly.

Gio, Tasha, and Bella said...

So sorry, Kenna. You guys deserve so much more. Please know you are in our hearts and prayers.

I totally feel for you. I can't go through with traditional adoption because of the risk of this happening. It seems to happen to so many people I know. Its so unfair and I know that you can't experience the joy and the wonders of parenthood without opposition. I just can't do it. You are so brave. I can't let myself go under the knife of adoption again and again and again. You and Studly are amazing to me. That you keep going forward with faith that, even though its hard, even though it hurts, you still see light at the end of the tunnel. I just don't trust birth parents. I understand that its hard to give up a baby, but I think its a crime to "promise" something to someone and then go back on that promise.

I love you Kenna! You are amazing, the Lord loves you. He has a plan for both you and the Studman! I think about (not in a creepy way) often and I pray for you to have strength to overcome demons that plague you so you can feel peace.

I don't know what more to say then to tell you what a spiritual giant in heaven. Heavenly Father knows you can get through this, stand tall your a daughter of God!

Sam and Lacey said...

Kenna-

I don't even know what to say. There is hope in adoption. Don't give up. You are so so strong. Our prayers are with you. The lord will compensate you for your trials. I know he will!! BELIEVE

Mary said...

Prayers to you.

libby said...

oh my gosh--I can't believe it-- again. no one deserves to go through what you have/are going through. you are two amazing people. I'm praying for you.

Jewls said...

Oh Kenna!
I am so sorry. We'll keep you all in our prayers!

Kayla said...

Everyone else has already summed up what I would say. I think of you often and will continue praying with everyone else!

Ashley said...

you're amazing and i love you so much.

prayers for all of you right now.

Holly & Kasey said...

Oh Kenna- I'm so sorry. I can't even express to you how sorry I am for the hurt that you are experiencing. What an amazingly strong woman you are.

Jamie said...

:( My dear sweet Kenna. My heart breaks for you. My stomach is in knots. I am very, very sorry and sad that this has happened once again.
