heavy heart.

Friday:
One of my kiddos comes up and gives me a big hug and says...

I love you, Mrs. Jones.
You look really thin today.

Seriously love this kid.
Seriously.
For so many reasons.
Not just because he called me thin. (But that did score him some points)



Monday:
Mom dropped him off at SRS and said she didn't want him anymore.


Please pray for this little guy.
Pray for his heart and his broken spirit.
His little voice that said, "I don't know what happened."
Pray that he will be able to come back to my class.
Pray that he will find a family who will love him and hug him and tell him about Jesus.
Pray hard for this little guy.

Not only praying for him but his mother and possible future family. It is hard to understand how a parent could do this to their child but we do live in a world with sin. She must be hurting too and I pray she gets the help she needs and learns about Jesus.
Also, we missed you tonight and hope you get some well deserved rest tonight.

How horrible.

I stopped over from Beki's blg and now my heart hurts. I am a Mom to two very amazing little boys and one beautiful little girl and I can't imagine walking into a place dropping my child off, telling someone I didn't want him anymore, and turning around and walking out on them. My heart aches for him, my heart aches for him Mommy, and my heart aches for you. Please keep me posted on this little boy as my heart seriously is breaking for him. I don't know what you have to do to give a little boy like that a forever home but I want to help him find one.

I came here through the link on Beki's blog.

I can't even imagine his pain. Praying that God will hold him tight...and the mom too.

I came over from Beki's blog...and I'm heartbroken. How?? How can this happen? I'm praying for him. I'm praying for the mom that broke his heart. God is a good God and he can heal all things that are broken.

How awful! I can't even imagine doing that to my child. Praying that little boy will soon be with a family that will treasure him.

Please do not judge this mother, can you imagine the sorrow to reach this point?

As a mother I weep for her. Being a mother is tough and if you have to do it without support it would be crippling to the thirsty spirit.

Don't each of us reach a point of longing for a minute of peace or silence or self-indulgence? I do, but I am blessed to have a supportive husband (no other family though, so it is a juggling act). In those moments, if there were no relief, no chance to renew my spirit, no re-energizing, no hope left....I can only imagine the desperation and so the tears fall for this mother.

Please let this remind us to reach out to one another, to offer a smile to the struggling momma in the checkout line, to support one another in this journey of motherhood.

Lord, please let this mother with a broken heart feel Your love and forgiveness and we are trusting You to comfort this abandoned child, Your child.

This little boy may well be the answer to a childless couple's prayers. I took in once such little boy, almost identical wording, once, after 12 childless years, and I can't tell you what a wonderful blessing he was, even though we were not intended to be his permanent placement. The family that did adopt him wanted a child just as we did, and they raised him well.

I will pray this little boy finds a good home, too.

Can't say anything...just praying for this precious little guy.
