All of you who can, please say a prayer for my daughter Rebecca.  She just lost her Dad, the wonderful man who adopted her, to a very sudden, tragic medical complication.  She's heartbroken, as is her Mom, and we're all stunned. Those of you who have read here a while, know it was an open adoption.  I didn't meet her until she was 18, but I've been invited to about every family gathering ever since  A finer father she could not have had. --Brigid

  2. By the God of All Men, Brigid, I will send the prayers of this sinful man to a God who seems to have turned His back on you and your family! My God listens to the prayers of sinners, so I am sure He will hear me, but it saddens me to think that He has not yet finished with you and yours. I will pray for your deliverance until the day it happens!

  7. Thank you. It was so hard to hear her tell me, she was as distraught as I've ever seen her, and rightly so. Family is making plans to get there (much of the family is in Hawaii as her Mom is native Hawaiian). Her Dad's brother is a priest (her Dad was Irish)- I hope he can make it to do the service. He's the one that married Rebecca and J.. Just sort of in shock here, trying to offer what comfort I can to she and her Mom, and my two little granddaughters who loved their grandpa very much. When the time was right, he welcomed me into that clan as one of their own.

    Murphy - God hasn't turned his back on me, he's been holding me up this whole year. Bless you for your prayers.

  11. Prayers offered up for Rebecca, you and the whole family. This is terribly difficult at this time of year. They say that the Lord never gives us more than we can handle. I pray that this is true for Rebecca, you and the family.

  18. I am so, so sorry, Brigid. I know what you thought of her father, what a good man he was. The world is certainly less for his passing. I'll definitely continue to keep her and her family in my prayers. It's never easy to lose those you love, but it's so much harder this time of year.

I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away. So please keep it friendly and kid safe. Posts that are only a link or include an ad for an unknown business automatically to to SPAM..
