I got a text this morning before we were supposed to leave to pick up the baby:

Hey i am really sorry to do
this but this week came way to fast
i need more time.
and again i am so so sorry.

So there you go. No baby.

(I say, "No baby" rather than, "No baby right now" because I believe that every time we make arrangements, this will happen. I won't put myself or Scout through that. And I don't have that same I Know it in My Bones Feeling like I did with Tucker.)

I know how upset you both are, but like I told you this morning, it's better you found out now than wait for 6 months to have it turn you inside out. There will be other opportunities.

I've been a lurker for quite some time, and am not sure if I've ever commented, but I feel like I need to now. So bear with me.

My heart breaks for you into one million pieces. It's this type of situation that has kept us from adding to our family via domestic adoption in the past; it's selfish I guess, but we've seen this heartache come to too many of our friends. My daughter is adopted from China and we will have our four year family day in February. We want to add to our family, but have had hesitation because of the hiccups in domestic adoption. Without going into the politics of understanding birth mothers and their choices, how brave they are, etc., it still has heartbreak on the back side of it. I'm sorry. Terribly, terribly sorry.

Dad's words have a lot of depth to them and he's right, but, unfortunately, it doesn't lessen the heartache.

I have something I'd like to share with you; a program we've recently learned about. I didn't see an email link on your sidebar, but, if you'd like, feel free to email me at potandkettle at gmail dot com.

Hug Tucker extra tight today.

I will be praying for you and your family, Erin. Stay strong and I'm sorry your going through this. Keep your head up, all great things in life are worth the wait, even as frustrating and heart breaking it is to go through.

I'm sorry.

Thanks, guys, for all of your sweet comments. We'll be fine, and there are other children meant for us - we know that! Thanks for sticking with us through the good and the not so good. :)
