|Roscoe the fat|
We found out on Valentine's Day that the little girl we have been pursuing in adoption has already been spoken for. We didn't know her yet and we only had one little picture and a description, but still, we had been praying for her since August and imagining her as a part of our family. We are so grateful though, that she has a forever family, but there is still a sense of loss. I spent the weekend growling like a momma bear awakened early from a winter nap as I sorted through emotions. We feel somewhat adrift because we thought we were heading somewhere specific, and now we've been redirected but we're not sure where that leads.
