Head over Heals... love with my new babies. Yes, we have a 17 mo, 2 yr 8 mo, and 4 yr 8 mo. They are all sisters with the same father, but the two youngest have a different mother than the oldest. They have been with us since October. I wish I could say we have adopted them, but alas I cannot. We are so not a foster family. We got licensed just so that we could adopt... Then we are told that these three angels need to be placed in a home that will want to adopt them... So we did it... OMG!!! Being a foster parent really tears at you!!! I hate it!!! We were told the judge was giving this six months as he is pretty strict...well the father got out of jail right towards the end of that six months so now they are were given their full year. The girls lawyer makes it sound promising for us, but we just have no clue. Based on what the attorney says it is our hope that the father and the little ones mother realize they cannot meet what they have to in the next six months and relinquish their parental rights, realizing the girls are well cared for, loved, and happy. We don't expect the oldest girls mom to make it that easy. So, please keep us all in your prayers.

I miss blogging...will try to make this a regular habit again.

  1. Oh LOOK! *chuckling* MORE kiddos.....and a foster parent situation to boot!
    Oh dearheart--there's no tougher, more rewarding 'job' than loving a matter the role. But boy, you chose a tough role with very loving intentions.
    Best I can offer is, 'love 'em while you got 'em'...and decide if you can do that twice. Who knows what the courts will do--but their objective is to reunite families, not choose who's the better option. (and sometimes that's a tough thing to stomach, I know)
    I'll be praying for you and yours--and for the kiddos who have to be mightily confused in all this.
    And truly--love 'em while you got 'em.
    I bet they're three of THE most awesome kiddos one could have land in their hearts.
