I Quit

Ok, not really. I feel a little bit like quitting, though, because this fostering stuff is hard work. You know what else is hard work? Trying to write anonymous posts when you really just want to tell the world every crappy thing that foster care has done to your child and family. But, Alas, I am neither quitting foster care or blogging. I'll find a way to make it work.

I wanted to let you know that "update Love Story" is on my To Do list. There has been so much going on with Baby 4, and it's all so frustrating and crazy. But we're here and still moving along. This is what you can expect from the next couple of posts as I get the chance to write them:

Relative Resource came up for court last week and had a visit with Baby 4 where we met at a public place. 

Nothing happened officially in court.

TPR has been filed and we go for the 1st appearance next month

My homefinding caseworker single handedly took on CPS to get 4 the therapy he needs. It turned really ugly

BioDad has decided he doesn't like us and feels it's OK to voice that to Baby 4 at visits.

Relative Resource plans to come back for court next month

We got Baby 2 & 3 for the long weekend and it was awesome.

I'm not prepared to ride this case out for 2 more years, though I think it may take that long to adopt Baby 4

It's our love story, but it's not all lovely.

Messy and difficult? Yes. Totally worth it? Yes.

First Day- October

We've been home for 3 weeks now. Baby 4 is doing really well. There is bound to be some court excitement tomorrow, but today was pretty quiet except for an impromptu cardiology appointment that turned out to be okay. Have you fallen in love with Nicole and her adorable kids on Journey to... yet? You should check out everyone's first day and link up for November!
