Broken Heart Ahead


Friends, I don't even know where to begin. I've just discovered some tragic news. No. Devastating news. Someone whom I've had the pleasure of getting to know and adore here in "cyberville" has just learned some very sad news. Her heart is breaking. Crushed. She was betrayed. I still don't understand how it happened. She was referred a baby, a gorgeous baby girl. Charlotte. She was making plans to travel. She was excited. Really excited. I was excited for her too. Not only was she going to be a mommy but she was going to be adopting two babies as a single professional mommy. One domestic and one international. But, she just learned that Charlotte was no longer available for adoption. WTF? She would not be her mommy. Please, I'm asking(begging) all of you to stop by her site and lend a hand, a hug and lots of prayers. She needs us now. My heart is so heavy. How could something like this happen?

Update: Lilly has posted under comments on this post under "Lilly" with a giant white L on black. Read what she has to say. She has un-deleted her blog so that you all can leave comments. Her e-mail is lillyjohnson253@ aol.com if any of you would like to contact her privately.

Rony, I commented on Lilly's blog and sent cyberhugs her way. I never thought this could actully happen to someone, and she did not even begin to deserve it. I thought your comment was very well written, and it came from the heart. I am so glad there are people like you in the world.
:( [I would sign with my normal smily, but I am to sad]

Lilly said...

Thank you, dear friend. As I learn more from my agency I will post it on my blog.

I just left a message for her. I can't even believe it. I would be raising hell with my agency, if I were her, especially if they were less than honest. You just don't hear of this stuff happening w/China. China adoptions are so straight forward, etc.

So very sad.

Christy said...

I will too leave a message right after this. I am so sorry about her situation. It is just heartbreaking to hear that these things happen. I will pray for her.

By the way-- you guys aint too shabby yourselves-- hot momma!!!

I went to her blog as soon as you sent me the email this morning. It's gone.....what a terrible thing to happen. I'm not sure if I have been to her blog or not. I can't remember names that well, but i remember the "blog look", so I am not sure. I hope she heals soon. Life seems so unfair at times doesn't it?
Hugs to you my friend....so glad you are back with your chicklets! ;)

How very sad. I know her heart must be broken. I will stop by. The only comfort one can get from this is the knowledge that God is on the throne. Perhaps this sweet baby girl needed someone at that time to love her and pray for her. That is why she came into her heart and life. How very difficult to go through. I cannot immagine.

Jewels of My Heart said...

Ronnie, there isn't a way to contact her anylonger. When you speak with her please tell her I am so sorry and will be praying for God's Peace for her, for Charlotte and for His will for their lives. I know she must be devistated.
Love you,
Daleea

shelley said...

Let her know she will be in all our thoughts....something like this hits too close to home...it is too tragic to even imagine.

Cindy from central NC said...

Oh no. It's just too tragic for mere words. I cannot even fathom how she and her family must be feeling. Can't even fathom. How in the world did that happen to someone in the China program....? Please do extend to her our condolences...

Hugs,
cindy

Hugs to her. The blog is not working.

That is such a horrid story. Sending love her way...

kris said...

Oh my gosh... I am SO sorry for your friend. I wish I could send her loads of encouragement and support, but it looks like her site is gone.

I cannot imagine the pain she is feeling... my heart breaks for her.

I'm stunned but sadly not shocked. This happens more than we wish to believe, but when it happens to someone you know it is devastating. I am thinking of her and praying she is able to get through this loss.
please send our thoughts and prayers her way.

Hayley

Hugs,

Lilly has un-deleted her blog and she has posted here under comments under "Lilly". Still so shocking it makes my head hurt.

Ms. Dragonfly said...

Will she still be going through with the domestic adoption? She will still be getting the other baby? Will she still be able to get referred off the next SN list?

Sam said...

Rony,
That just breaks my heart! I am furious that the anonymous coward wrote those hurtful words on her blog too!!!! What is with people?! Nothing like kicking someone when they're down! I hope and pray things will work out for her.

Is there any way she can be referred another child from China?

Lori said...

Thanks for letting us know, I'll pop over there. :(

Lilly said...

I know a lot of you have asked: "can't she just receive another referral?" I wish it were that simple, but I do not wish to pursue another adoption from China sue to my experience. I was screwed over by my agency my daughter's orphanage. For those of you who think that there is little to no corrpution in China - think again. I am currently living this nightmaree.
