Newest Addition!!

Update: The baby has went back to be with his mom. She got upset with me because I would not let her come to live with me and she decided to come and get the baby. She is still going to jail, I just have to be patient and wait. Her court date is the end of April and I will be there!!


On Saturday we got an unexpected but much loved addition to our family of five. My brother and his girlfriend had a baby about 4 months ago. My brother has been in jail since she found out she was pregnant and will not get out until late May. On Friday I got a phone call asking if I could take the baby for awhile because the mother was in trouble. Of course I said yes because I would never turn away an innocent baby. So on Saturday night the grandma came to drop of this adorable 4 month old baby boy named Clayton and all of his belongings. Right now we don't know how long he is staying, but we are taking it month to month. Please be in prayer for our whole family as we adjust to having a new baby around and pray for my brother and the baby's mother that they will get their lives straight and take care of this baby the way he needs to be or make the decision to leave him with me forever.
