Family found? Diego

I have written before about the love of my life, Diego . I got word yesterday that my sweet little boy from the Hogar in Guatemala has a hearing court date because his aunt was found. My question is, How?? Wasn't he found in a septic tank? My heart broke into little pieces knowing that he might leave the Hogar prior to me getting to Guatemala. I cried and prayed for God to be in control. It's almost a miracle to think that a family member was found. It's easy for me to be selfish and want him for me, but God has an amazing plan for this little guy. I believe that with all of my heart. So July 23rd is the big court date. I need to prepare my heart to be ready if he ends up going home with his aunt that day. The picture to the left is when I met him and the picture to the right is a year later. He has gotten so big and I hope and pray that I will be able to keep in touch if he is placed with his aunt.

God, I give you my broken heart so you can restore it. 

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. (Psalm 42:11 NIV)
