A number of you responded to my blog and are praying. I received
this email from the parents after we’d gotten in touch with a local
pastor who called.

Pastor Mel called our daughter yesterday and prayed
with her. She appreciated that. She is
starting to get very depressed since we are not being sucessful in finding her
a maternity home that will accept her. I
am so proud of her that she left the environment whe was in and decided to seek
shelter elsewhere where she can get counseling, and eventualy treatment for her
addicition. A lot of homes will not
accept her on the methadone clinic, even though she is advised by her doctor to
stay on the same dosage she was on prior pregnancy. I guess she is too “bad” to qualify
for help. Her hopes are to find a place where she can have the baby and get on
her feet and then get treatment for her meth addiction. We have been told it will take her 1 year to
detox, since it is the hardest to detox from.

Our daughter is a beautiful and smart 26 year old who
so much wants to live again. She has
lost the last 5-6 years of her life to drugs.
She is now very saddened by her actions and embarrassed to be around
others. I want her to consider placing
the baby for adoption. I do not think
she can care for an infant on her own. I
am not sure what she will do. I pray the
Lord will guide her in making her decision.
Drugs have taken there toll on her physically. She has nothing, no home, no job and poor
health.

Please pray the Lord will provide her strength and
guidance that she be successful soon on finding a place to go.
