We might take another placement.
Last year we did respite for an 11 yr old. It is a long story. But, we were called to see about possibly having him come live with us. Might be short term, could be long term.
Since he has been in care for a year, his case is an adoption case - just like Lil J's case. Parents can still work a plan, so it is not a guaranteed adoption thing.
That would make 5 kids in our home (well, 4 now and 5 with the new baby in the fall), and Colin would have to share a room - which he is OK with.
Lots to think about, lots to consider. If we say we are interested, it is not a guarantee that he will come. There are a couple of other fost/adopt families that have expressed interest as well.
Will be having a long conversation with the hubs tonight.
wow - are we crazy????
