Please pray for the Miles Harrison family and the Russian adoption community:
On Tuesday, Miles Harrison left his 21 month old little boy, Chase, in his SUV all day when he went to work and forgot to drop him off at daycare. The child did not survive. Miles Harrison collapsed when he learned about his sons death and was taken to the hospital. He has been charged with the manslaughter of Chase.
Chase was adopted from Russia in March, about the same time as we adopted Aidan. We first learned about Chase's existance upon our return when we took Aidan to the pediatrician. Apparantly, Chase was being seen by the same pediatrician as Aidan and they had remarked at the time how strange it was that there was another little boy from Russia with the last name of Harrison! I wish now we had pursued getting to know the other Harrison's as they live just in Purcellville, the town next to ours.
I can't even imagine what the Harrison's are experiencing at this time. My heart just breaks for them and for little Chase. Please keep them and the Russian adoption community/process in your prayers.
