This is going to end up being so hard. It's already hard. I can tell you right now that I'm going to need to be prayed up every minute in order to have the wisdom and discernment we need in order to know which child to take.
I can't help but think of these kids they called about tonight. I heard the one year old little girl in the background crying for her daddy. I'm in tears right now just thinking about it! I wanted to go grab that child and just rock her to sleep. And her 3 year old big brother too. They cannot help what's going on with their parents or what they may have seen already in their little lives. I just think about Porter and how scared he would be if he was taken from our home. He would be crying for me and for his daddy. He would be so confused as to why he wasn't in his house, in his bed.
There are so many things going through my mind right now. Way too many and way to fast for me to even get them out. I'm so very thankful that the Holy Spirit can understand my thoughts and my groanings because I can't get many of these things into words. I'm just so broken for these kids.
God, meet their needs tonight. Bring them someone that will take care of them tonight and love on them. Give wisdom to the caseworkers and those trying to place these kids. They have such a hard job - give them patience and love for these kids.
