Broken heart

 

I recently came accross a blog entry containing this picture...



This is sweet little Ryan. After his mom gave birth to him they found out that he has Down syndrome. She, along with her husband and other child decided to put him up for adoption. Ryan is currently 2 months old and lives in NY. Please pray for this sweet little boy, he needs a family asap. Josh and I have e-mailed the agency his is currently with, as we are trying to see if this sweet baby is meant to be here with us. Unfortunately,  the next step is to get them a copy of our home study. Our agency wants to charge us $1500 to do a new home study. Unfortunately, we do not have that kind of money (my husband is a teacher and i stay home, money isnt exactly flowing in) . So please pray that doors be opened (to us or another family) we want Ryan to have his forever family!!!!

Oh come on people. why do they have to make it so hard to get kids into homes they deserve. Praying this baby gets into a good home, and yours would be a great one. Is it a private adoption?

Oh that just made me cry. Why... why would people not want such a perfect angel? I will pray that this sweet boy finds a fabulous home soon.

That's sad that his family put him up for adoption just because he has downs.......It's even sadder that loving families who desperately want to adopt these beautiful and sweet little children are forced to pay outrageous amounts of money to do so.

My prayers are with you and your family!

Oh how very sad, I wish that you could gather those funds for the study. Sweet little Josh deserves a good family now.

It makes me crazy the things we have to do to adopt! We had to take out a loan to get Max, and are currently applying for a state subsidy to help pay it back. You know about the adoption tax credit, too, right?
Praying he finds his forever home soon.

Oh so sad. That family sure gave up a lot. Wish it didn't cost so much to get these darling kids into homes that they deserve. We will be praying for that little guy!
