A New Development ~ Asking For Prayer!

We received an email from Lymaris, our agency director this afternoon telling us she had received word from our attorney, Beyla that her investigators have been in contact with Olivia's birth mother's father (Olivia's maternal grandfather). Apparently the reason she disappeared was that no one in her family knew anything about her having children let alone relinquishing any of them for adoption and was in fear they would find out (at the time she relinquished Olivia, she had four children). Needless to say, the father was quite upset about this. The investigators explained the situation to him and he agreed to try to reach out to his daughter. Beyla is waiting to hear back from the father hopefully later today.

Please pray with us that the birth mother comes forward and now that "the cat is out of the bag", will be willing to complete this process she started two years ago and do the right thing for her child.

I will update again when we hear something more.

Great news that you may be able to find her birthmother...I understand it does make you worried. I'm sure if she is found she will make the right decision for her daughter and this should help to speed up Olivia's process of coming home to you forever!
