Meet the newest addition to the GLA family! He’s a sweet, healthy newborn baby boy named Jean-Britus. His Papa brought him to us yesterday. Its a sad story. His Mama died in childbirth, leaving behind the Papa, 2 older siblings, and this little one. Papa is unable to care for the baby, so brought him to us for adoption. Its something you don’t always think about: Adoption, as wonderful as it can be, never happens without tragedy and broken hearts somewhere along the way. We are honored to be able to care for Jean-Britus in the midst of the tragedy. Please pray for his Papa and family as they grieve and figure out how to do life without his Mama. And pray for this beautiful little guy; that he grows up healthy and strong, that he knows he is loved, that he is matched with a forever family soon.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Psalm 139: 13-16
