Default So. I'm here.

I've always wanted to adopt. But didn't really know how to go about it. I didn't want to do international. Didn't want to do private adoption. Didn't want to foster because I couldn't handle giving them back. I was also terrified of getting older kids who might do something to my kids (strangely specific fear, but it terrifies me.)

Anyway. I have a coworker who fosters. A year and a couple months ago she got a new born baby and his almost 2 year old sister. Mom quickly became pregnant and now she has their newborn sister. DCS is going to start termination on the 1 year old in 3 weeks. After 6 months they plan to start termination on the baby. Their older sister is probably going to go with her dad (different dad).

My coworker LOVES these kids. But she doesn't want to adopt them because she feels like she's too old to start over again with babies. I asked her how she would feel if we were able to adopt them and she likes that idea. She could stay in their life. They asked the case worker about it and he took our number and said that he didn't have any other waiting families for them.

So it's a long shot. But how amazing would that be?? We went and hung out with them and the babies are so sweet.

That's awesome!
and waay easier than here. We were foster parents for over 7 years and never once had the opportunity to adopt. I hope it works out!

The case worker still hasn't called. So I don't know if he isn't interested in looking at us or if he is just waiting. Or... ?
