I am so sad!

I usually make generic cards to give whenever. You know the type ~ they fit a multitude of people or occasions. Today, I have a card made for a specific occasion....well, it was intended for a very special baby! But, alas, things have not panned out as we had ALL hoped.
Our friends have been looking to adopt and had finally jumped through the millions of hoops to even be considered. It has gone so far that they met with the mother and were just waiting for the bay to be born. Yesterday, my husband received a text with the picture of the baby and the pertinent info! YEAH!!
So, I made a card to celebrate....since the baby was born on Election Day, I went with patriotic colors. He needed blue and I liked the striped DP's together. Even followed the deconstructed sketch and it came out beautiful (if I do say so myself).
Yep, here comes the kicker.....the baby's mother has changed her mind..... Not only are our friends and their family devastated, but so are we, part of the extended family so to speak....
Y'all know I don't usually share 'stuff' like this, but my heart is broken! I am going to share my card...I think I need to so that I can move on. I'd like everyone to say a little prayer for this baby, such an innocent little boy in awful situation!




Thanks for stopping by!
HUGGZ,
April

Oh sweetie, I'm praying along with you as I know that God will have to have his army of angels to watch over the wee babe. It's a heartbreaking sceneario but we have to trust in His wisdom and maybe, just maybe, he will grow up happy and healthy. Beatuiful card!
