Difficult decisions

Several weeks ago, I wrote about some things that had not been very fun that were keeping us busy.  You can read the post here.  In that post, I talked about out microwave going out.  While that was certainly not fun, there were somethings that were much more serious weighing on our minds.  In mid January, there was an announcement made at our church about on upcoming event that the pastor was very excited about.  Out of respect for the church, I'm not going to write about an of the specifics of the event here, but I will say that the event was something that we could not support in good conscience.  We talked with our pastors about our concerns, and after doing that it because clear to us that we needed to find another church.  Our hearts were broken.  We loved the people there, so many of whom had floored us with prayers and encouragement when we began the adoption process.  The decision to leave was very difficult, but we knew in our hearts that it was what we needed to do.

We have visited a couple of other churches, and I think we found we found one that we will eventually join.  We're taking things slowly.


  1. That is a very tough place to be! I'm saying a prayer right now that God will guide you in this decision and you will find "family" to worship with!

  2. So, so sorry that things are not goin well at church. The support of Christian friends is soooo important. I will be praying that you find a new church home soon. And, so proud of you and James for sticking by your convictions, even at the cost of your friendships and church.
