Fost/Adopt update

So....we might be getting placement of a 3 yr old boy. He was placed in a foster home last week, but for this reason or that, the placement was not a good match for the family.

I am on a message board and the current foster mom contacted to to see if we would be interested in taking this placement.

The more information that we got, the more we thought we wanted to accept the placement. I got lots of info from the foster mom and then even more from the case worker this morning.

I was confident based on all the info that this would be a good placement for us. I spoke to the case worker and told her that we would LOVE to have this little boy in our home. I then e-mailed the current FM and she was able to give me so much info about this little boy. She then invited me over for a visit.

I thought this would be a great idea so that I am not a stranger. His birthday was just last month, so I decided to buy him a little gift. I went there and spent about 2 hours playing with this little boy. He is so very smart, and so very very sweet.

After the visit, I just KNEW that we had made the right decision when we accepted the placement. I know he will be a great addition to our family.

Since this is a foster placement which may or may not lead to adoption, I can not publically display any pics or any provide any detailed information.

So, for the purpose of this blog, he will be called "Little J". There is paperwork that has to be done, but he could be placed with us as early as tomorrow!!!!

We are on cloud nine!
