This is also an update from the Due in June post…
I was silent on this situation because the momma did not come back to the agency to see the families that had been applying…what has been found is…
She still has not found “her family” for her son Due in June
5/22/2014 1:26pm still no families for this baby
5/22/14 6:00pm Inna said she has received a few families meeting the criteria. To refute a rumor Inna said is circulating… This baby has not been matched before, and is not matched now, the birth parents have not chosen their family yet. They are wanting more information on two families, but her choice has not yet been made. Once she has chosen a family, I will update with a new blog posting.
5/23/14 3:37 pm Inna said they have many families and are waiting on pictures and profiles from the ones that have met the criteria. Praying the birth family chooses soon. Tomorrow I should know if enough profiles have been received to close this posting. Thank you all for sharing and praying for the right family for this little one.
5/27/13 1:29 pm It is so hard to be in my position… I am trying to be wise. I thank all of you who have replied and shared this need. I have heard such conflicting information regarding the matching of this little baby. If you were hurt in this process, I am so sorry. I have heard from the agency and from people who have had direct contact with the agency in regards to the placement of this little one. All I know is the stories do not match. I would ask you would assume this situation is matched. Either by this outreach or from the prior outreach a month ago. Thanks again, and I wish I could say I know everything, but I don’t.
