sacrificial love

I was going to write a frivolous post today about Philomena’s new ability to sit up by herself for long periods of time, but then I was stopped dead in my tracks by this blog post.

My old friend Alison and her husband have been eagerly awaiting the birth of their adopted daughter with spina bifida. After spending one precious week with Seraphina Caritas, the birth mother decided to take her back.

I can’t even begin to imagine their heartache, but even more than the pain I feel for Alison,  I am completely, utterly moved and humbled by her witness of sacrificial love and forgiveness.

Please, please read this. And pray for Alison and her beautiful family.
