Adoption Update

We haven't heard anything more about the twin boys/little girl sibling set, still waiting for court papers to go through before setting a best interest staffing.

We did get another profile and I really can't believe the decision we made about this one. The profile was for a 10 mo. old baby boy, he had a few minor issues...we have choosen not to be included in a best interest staffing for him. I'm still in shock that we made that decision but I feel 100% that it's the right decision. That little boy will find HIS family (I'm sure there will be a ton for the worker to choose from). As we told our worker when she first visited with us, we are not in this to find A child or children we want to find OUR child(ren), the ones meant to be with us. We had an overwhelming feeling that this little boy was not our child, that we are being led to adopt more than one child this time...a sibling group that needs a family that is willing and able to keep them together.

In a way it breaks my heart to say no to a baby but I've come to terms with the fact that our baby days might be over. When I look back, we had a baby almost constantly for the entire 8 years that we were a foster family...maybe it's time to move on. We'll just have to wait and see what's in store for us :-) Most certainly with as hectic as our schedule has become with Brooke and Lexy getting older and involved in more things children that are a little older would be easier when it comes to all our comings and goings but we are open to whatever is meant to be!
