Oh Jill!!! I am devastated for you and your family and for Keith, who will not grow up knowing his twin sister. You will be in our prayers. And if you need to talk, please don't hesitate to call me.

I'm so sorry. I don't understand how that happened--I didn't think they would refer out a child when someone else is doing paperwork on them??? Especially since they were a sibling group.

We will pray for you! What a terrible thing to have happen.

What the!?! There must be some legal recourse you can take to get her back. Have you talked to whoever is in charge and "reminded" them of their 'claimed' status?! Maybe there was some mistake? If you have the opportunity to get down to the bottom of it, I would, and fast...don't be hesitant to submit your case and facts.

I am so sorry. I thought the two were siblings????? I thought you couldn't split siblings.

((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))) The same thing happened to our family in 2006, I know the pain can be unbearable, my heart and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. Too often people shrug off the pain that losing a beloved child you hope to adopt causes.

Please allow yourself to grieve, you loved her, and she felt like your child already, I know Joy did for us.

Perhaps there is another little girl who needed you more, God gave us Kara and Amanda after we lost Eva and Joy.

For those who were asking, yes, the SDA will split siblings if they believe that a "healthy" sibling is unlikely to be adopted due to having an "unhealthy" sibling. They will also split siblings if one if significantly older--say a 12 yo and a 3 yo, so that at least one of them can be adopted (most people who want a 3 yo do not want a 12 yo).

Jill, I am so sorry.

Jill,

I, too, am extremely sad to hear this!! I couldn't imagine having my baby "swooped" out from under me after getting to know her.

That it is so sad that they would break up siblings especially in this situation considering the bond twins commonly share. I'm so very sorry.
