Heartbreaking News

Last Monday we received a phone call that broke our hearts. Cooper’s birthparents have decided to parent him. This was definitely not the news we were expecting. Things were going so smoothly, and we hoped he would be home in just a few weeks – just in time for his 1st birthday. We had everything ready for him!
Even though we are very sad that he is not coming to our home, we know this is a huge blessing for Cooper and his family. His mom and dad get to raise their beautiful baby boy, and he gets to grow up with parents that we know love him and want the best for him. Our hope for him is that he grows up healthy, happy and loved beyond measure.
We know he is a special little boy, and he will always have a special place in our hearts. Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers - especially that our children understand. Finally, please pray that his transition to his parents goes smoothly.
