Thank you, thank you for all your encouraging and kind words as well as your prayers. First off, I changed the word "loathe" in the post after last to "tares at my heart." Please forgive me if I offended any of you. Never my intention.
Secondly, a few of you have asked about a photo of our new son.....This is such an extremely touchy situation. Of course I will get photos of all the kids on Christmas day, but as for an "alone picture," I am going to wait. I believe many of you know who the child is, please keep praying.
And thirdly, the Lord gave me a beautiful picture tonight. Instead of saying that Ephraim has "attachement disorder," as the world would like to label his behavior, I believe the Lord would have me to say that he is a sheep that has never had a Shepherd, who needs the "rod and the staff" which will draw him into the fold.
Oh, praise you Jesus, our Shepherd.
