Placement #2!!

So after almost 15 months we are accepting placement #2 today! Hubby and I decided awhile ago that we were going to open our home up to a second placement and this one kind of just landed in our laps! Our social worker called and asked if we would be willing to take a 3 day old AA little BOY :) He was going to be released from the hospital this morning and we will be receiving him this afternoon. People may think we are nuts to have 4 boys ages 6,4,1, and newborn, but we have the space, we have the love and God wants us to do it, so there! :) My good friend who has fostered lots of newborns in her first year of fostering is bringing over a bassinet for us to borrow, a bouncy seat and what leftover newborn diapers she has! I am so thankful for the support :)

More details to come....when I know them :)

Get all the help you can!

We adopted an infant seven years ago (through the foster care system). There is something totally different waking up in the middle of the night every single night when your body hasn't been being prepped for that by being pregnant.

You're not nuts for taking the placement though. I think it's beautiful!!

Ack! Congratulations! Now that our foster son is walking we told the SW to keep us in the back of her mind. It is crazy to think about getting a call again. It is amazing how quickly your life can change in the foster world. Looking forward to your updates.
