SAD day! Izze’s birth mom is contesting relinquishing her parental rights. We are still dealing with major GI issues due to her birth mom’s drug usage – including cocaine usage through 6-8 weeks prior to Izze’s delivery. It seems surreal to me that she would really do this – I feel like it is so selfish on her part. Izze will be in such bad circumstances if she is awarded to the birth mom. The birth mom is currently living in an unfinished basement with a 70+ year-old male sponsor. She has no means of supporting her much less any type of “home environment”. She is currently on parole (as is her boyfriend) and has previously lost custody of 2 previous children due to child endangerment charges. This is heart-breaking. I am praying that her heart will soften and that this will not turn into a long, drawn out legal battle. We so LOVE this little girl – I can’t imagine losing her after all this time…. May what is best for Izze prevail! Praying, praying, praying…….
Hoping that God will open the windows of heaven and bless Jon and Sarah and Izze.
