I cannot think about this child (on the left) without crying. This post will be short...
Please pray with us today for sweet Dominick who is now 6 years old.
We met him when he was only 18 months old. He came in and out of our lives and our home many times over the years. We never refused him - even after the pain of having to say "Good-bye" way too many times and even when his behavior became more and more challenging as a result of being bounced around too much.
In my opinion, the systems put in place to protect him and the people with the power to make healthy decisions for him, utterly failed him. My eyes were painfully opened to the depth of the corruption and brokenness in our own backyard.
I still don't know why God chose to allow things to happen the way they continually have in his young life. BUT, I have to remember and believe with all my heart that God loves him more than I ever could and my job is to pray for him...for the rest of my life. I will always love Dominick...no less than all my other children.
It has almost been a year since I took this last picture of Dom with Hezzie. It was the day they had to say good-bye....again. It still hurts. BUT, I went to every court date, I fought for him in every possible way and I was willing to take him whenever, no matter what...every.single.time. I know I did all I humanly could....the rest....I leave at the feet of Jesus.
God bless you & keep you...close and safe, sweet Dominick!
