Good Bye For Now Baby Paxton

Thank you to Diane Seamans for this wonderful family photo! We've been so blessed to be able to use it as our Christmas card photo for this year.
It is with a heavy heart we said goodbye to baby Paxton yesterday after the court hearing. The judge decided that he could go back with his mom. No one really expected it at all, but we know it wasn't a surprise to God. Such is the uncertainty of being a foster family.

We were so blessed to have had Paxton in our family for 7 weeks. He has done so well, and of course he had NO shortage of love and attention here at the Winslow farm. 

We know that the foundation we laid in his life can NEVER be taken away. We will continue to pray daily for him and his family. We have been praying Jeremiah 29:11 for baby Paxton and we trust that "God knows the plans He has for Paxton, plans to prosper him and not to harm him, plans to give him a hope and a future. We know that our lives have been made brighter by having been blessed so greatly by this precious little boy.

We look to the Lord and pray for His will as to who He'll bring into our family next! It's exciting and we promise to keep you posted.
