An end to a short beginning.

Rejection is hard, and quite common with adoption.  And we have experienced our first. 
The birth mom previously  mentioned is keeping the baby after all, and I hope this time it's a closed ride, because this roller coaster isn't very fun.
Thanks for all your well wishes and congrats.
We'll save them for another day.

    What can I say that hasn’t already been said? My heart is broken for you, Perry and me too! I felt like it was meant to be and I was so excited to bind our two families together. I feel responsible for inflicting pain on you. 🙁 I’m so sorry it didn’t work out. We love you so much. You all remain in our prayers! I know it will happen again and what a beautiful day that will be!!! All my love, xoxo, Tiffany

    I am so sorry to hear that things didn’t work out. this time. This is Tandy’s sister in law in case you were wondering. I can relate with all of the feelings you are going through right now. We had 3 adoptions not work out last minute before we got our daughter. Take your time processing your feelings. let no one tell you how to feel. Be angry the days you want to be angry. Be happy when you want to. Cry whenever you feel like it. And keep praying even when you don’t want to. I feel a little weird giving advice to a stranger but I hope it helps in some way. You are an AMAZING photographer, keep busy doing the things you love doing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
