Birthmother=not a match

Before I start out I just have this sense of frustration. So we emailed a few times with the birth family and then it was like as soon as we said we were not non-denomination she wanted to have nothing to do with us. I was pretty sure we would have contacts some of which didnt work out but never in a million years did I think it would be over religion. She pretty much said she was looking for someone that was non-denomination.

I will learn to accept it and know that God has another situation waiting for us but its just disheartening to hear that the reason you wont get picked is because of your religion which is Presbyterian (PCA) and not non-denomination.

We havent heard from the family all day today and I doubt we will. I just pray for God to show us the perfect situation and the perfect family in Gods perfect timing.

I'm sorry to hear that things didn't work out. I'm praying that God has the perfect birthmother out there for you.

I'm sorry it didn't work out - our agency told us you never know what particular thing they're looking for, but it's usually one specific thing they settle on - pets, other children, religion...everyone is different. I know the right one will come along though...and it must feel good to have a contact so quick! Hang in there. :)

So sorry, Amber. That does seem incredibly frustrating, but I know you are trusting the Lord to lead you in just the right direction! Hang in there!

Oh, wow. How frustrating, like you said, especially over religion. There's a reason sweetie. Thinking of you!!
