Please, please pray for this family

Sweet Kim is one of my sorority sisters...she is a couple of years younger than me and I didn't know her very well when we were in school, but through a mutual friend I started reading her blog about a year ago. After reading for a short time, it made me wish I had worked harder to get to know her in college. I am just in awe of her strength, her faith, her compassion for others and her grace. This amazing woman has endured more in the last few years than any person should ever have to, and she has done it with an unwaivering faith. Her life is an inspiration to everyone who knows her. After giving birth to a healthy daughter, she has buried two babies, adopted a son and was in the process of adopting a daughter. The baby was born last weekend, and she had her home for only a few hours when the birthmom changed her mind.....She is feeling broken and hopeless and is in dire need of prayers. Please find a few moments to pray for Kim and her husband and for ALL of their children and stop by her inspiring blog and leave some words of encouragement for her . She is also asking for prayers for the birthmom and baby Tess.

Man, isn't that just wrong when stuff like that happens. I know that God has a plan for her but sometimes, you just have to wonder why that happens. I am praying for her and her family. And how nice of you to post for her while she might not be feeling the best right now, I bet she is thankful for that!

Kim was one of the sweetest girls in our house! I planned the funeral for my still-born nephew... and prayed no one I knew ever would have to feel that pain. To see what she has gone through just breaks my heart! Her story is one of incredible faith. If only we all had such strength! She and her family are in my prayers!

I can;t remember how, but I found this blog the other day and started reading it. I can't imagine the hurt and the heartache that they must be feeling. I will for sure keep them in my thoughts and prayers.

I saw her blog the other day from Kelli Lay's status update. So sad. What was her maiden name? Was she two years or three behind us? If it was three then I wasn't there anymore.

I'm praying. I will head over there now to leave her a note.

Sending prayers of comfort for your friend Kim. She sounds like a very amazing/inspiring person. We may not understand now why someone has to be put through such tramatic situations like this one,but it is part of what "is to be". This is the true testmony of what our future holds. Keep the faith Kim.~Darlene
