"Oh good! Now I get to be adopted!" Coming from a 2 yr old's mouth (or any child for that matter!) is so precious. He later was talking to my mom and she asked how things were going for him and he said "I gonna get adopted!" He has no clue what that really means other than it's a good thing! :) We celebrate adoption here and the kids get excited about it!
Yesterday we received an email saying our county intakes were way up and most of the available beds were full. They asked (everyone) to think about increasing capacity, going outside your profile, etc. I started to pray about it and was going to talk to hubby. Well..that didn't happen! I got side-tracked and forgot about it.
FF to this morning when I got an email from the supervisor at our agency asking us to consider a 5 month old baby boy! Ok... first the 5 months hit me, then the male thing! God must really think I need practice with boys!! Am I not getting this right God??? LOL! Anyway, as you read several posts ago, I am not sure where we are at with this! I called hubby (it took forever to get a hold of him!) and I asked him to pray about it and I will defer to his being the head of the household and leave it at that. If he says no then I trust that God has told him that and God has another home for this little one to go to. The supervisor said that the baby is in a temp home until Monday so we have a bit of time.
It's really weird, but I think I am ok with either decision. It will definitely be hard to have 5 boys, stuff them in my car, the logistical stuff, etc. but we'll be ok :) If we are not to be his family, I am totally full with my fantastic four! Your call God!!!
After thinking/praying about it for a bit I asked my older kiddos what they would think of another little baby in the house. Andrew's response was "Oh yeah! Then we can adopt that one too!" Their sweet little hearts are so full! Of course that may change a bit when Mommy is stretched just a bit thinner, but it's so wonderful to think that my kids will welcome anyone with open arms into our family! They've never had to say good-bye to anyone...yet!
I'll keep you updated on the final decision!!!
