My Edith goes.

Today I logged on to Facebook and there in the news feed- I read the news.

My Edith has gone home.

Its hard news to take and my heart feels like its breaking,its crumbling in millions of pieces.

I know the situation in her family life so I imagine it can't be easy for my sweet girl.

She's so innocent and little.

She doesn't have a relationship with the aunt and uncle that have taken her.

I imagine my girl must be so scared. 

Afraid and unsure of what to make of her new life.

Will you join me in praying for peace and comfort for my precious Edith?
That God will provide a way for me to find her family and keep up to date with her?

My darling girl, I will pray for you everyday,
I'm going to miss you forever Edith.
I will love you always.
Don't forget me.
Love Mama Emma

I am so sorry Emma. I know how much you love her! I will pray for peace and comfort for you both! I know it may not seem like a lot right now, but her life has been truly blessed because of the love that you shared so freely with her!

Olivia said...

Praying for you! That's all I can say right now. I didn't know very much about Edith, but from what I have read here on your blog, I know you loved her very much! Praying for you today, and for Edith!

Oh, Emma...I'm so sorry.

She is your daughter, truly.

I pray you find peace, and she find peace. And I pray that you two find one another again.

Much love.

Oh sweetie, I am just reading this news and I am so very sorry for you. So very sorry. I am reminded of singing "Everlasting God" this morning during worship . . .

Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our Strong Deliverer
You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won't grow weary

You're the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need . . .

He is Edith's defender, Emma and He is her comforter-- and your comforter.

Oh Father, please bring comfort to Emma's broken heart. Be with Edith Lord. Be her mighty defender, and the comforter of her tiny heart. Thank you Father for the love that Emma has poured into her sweet Edith, may it carry her through--and Father would you please somehow keep a connection between Emma and her beautiful Edith. What looks tough to us is nothing for You. Our hope is in you, Lord! In Jesus name, Amen

Blessings on your heart, Emma.
