Update on Richie and Lydia's Adoption

Richie and Lydia recently received the news that their treasured baby, adopted at its earliest, most vulnerable age, did not make it.  It's been such a very emotional time, and the loss has been so very difficult in many ways. This is what Lydia shared from her heart on her facebook page:
"We lost baby Tevis last weekend...a tough blow to take.  But as hard as it is, we know that God is faithful and he will see us through. Right now we are putting our trust in knowing there is a master plan, though it is always a challenge for our human hearts to understand why he sometimes chooses to " give, and take away." It is such a crazy feeling to be at your highest high, and then lowest low in a matter of hours. All the hurt, fear, pain, anger of loss after such a long hard battle doesn't just disappear. But my Daddy put it so well... "God is not surprised by our emotions, he made them!" It's ok to be angry. It's ok to say "God, I really don't get what you are trying to do right now!" I don't understand, but I continue to trust him. Our only hope is in the truth that nothing is random or without meaning, and his purpose--though unseen--is good, loving, perfect. And someday...someday, I just know that He will turn our sorrow into joy."
Thanks so much for praying for them!!!
