Because I need them to know

Jess and Darrell have been on my mind lately. I have followed their blog from well before they received their referral last year and check in on them often as they fight to bring home their beautiful girls. After I read their most recent post, I cried - I cried for them and the pain they must be going through and the unimaginable tragedy that they must be living through right now.

I need Jess and Darrell to know that if there is ANYTHING we can do to advocate to help bring those girls home - letters, emails, phone calls, etc. I will see to it that it happens. I would never want to impose at such a difficult time, so I would never act until instructed to do so. But when ready, I will fight as hard as necessary - I've still got lots left in me!

I could not sit quickly without sending my thoughts, hopes, prayers, and admiration to Jess and Darrell.

I am with you, Ready to do anything that can be done.
I have followed them since this summer and I am still in shock and at a huge loss of words to even try and imagine the grief they must be trying to grasp.

I have no idea how they could even try and put one foot in front of the other to get on that plane, I can not even imagine the flights home, or every hard step that comes after that.

I have some friends not even in the adoption world when I shared part of the story to send them some good vibes, The first words out where " well what can we do " "how can we help "

So thanks for sharing your thoughts in this post and all my good thoughts are with them as well.

Hi,
I can't remember if I have already introduced myself (maybe I'm following too many adoption blogs!) We adopted our youngest daughter from Ecuador 2 years ago. Now I follow other peoples adoption blogs - as if our own waiting/adoption process wasn't enough, now I vicariously stress about strangers adoption progress. My heart goes out especially to Darrell and Jess. If there is anything we can do, let us know.

Oh my. And you can't comment on their site anymore. I am shocked and can't even imagine exactly what they are going through and what M&M are going through. I'll be praying over here too. This makes me feel so sick.
