There is a young woman whom I will simply refer to on here as M. M is related to me. She was married in the temple and had a baby girl whom she named Bella Rose. M had a mental illness and while she was pregnant with Bella, She was off her meds and put in to a psychiatric hospital. The Doctors in the hospital decided that m wasn’t fit to raise a child and as soon as Bella was born, they took her away from M and put her in foster care, telling M that she could choose the adoptive parents.
M chose her sister R who is married and has two children of her own to adopt Bella. But R is an atheist and will not raise Bella in the church of even with a knowledge of God. this bothers me and I wish so much that I could adopt Bella and raise her in the church. Also, R doesn’t plan on telling Bella that she is adopted and I would tell her that if she was mine.
M is insistent that R adopt her baby and I know that the plans are already in the works for this to happen but it makes me sick that this child who was born int he covenant is going to be raised without a knowledge of her savior and I would do anything to change that but it’s out of my hands.
This has been making me a little anxious. I know that starting over with a brand new baby would be so hard. I am so close to getting mine raised and I would have to hire a babysitter while I went to work which is something I never did or wanted to do when my children were little so I need to let this go and put it in God’s hands but I just can’t help but worry about this little girl and how she will be raised.
