    This is heartbreaking news for anyone to read. For the person responsible: I honestly and sincerely pray that you would come into a knowledge of God’s indiscriminating grace and love for you, it’s never too late change and no one is beyond saving. However, should you not feel compelled to come forward and give Ivy back to her family, I pray also that God’s hand of justice and rightful judgment would be upon you and you would have no peace until you do.
