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.


  1. :( i hope something happens soon

  2. Take your time to update~you have a "few" things going on. We'll be here waiting :)

  3. First time visiting your blog; I just found you through I Must be Trippin'. Sorry things are rough...I hope they brighten up soon. Hang in there!

  4. Hi, I am a 20 year old college student who has spent the past few days reading through your blogs. I came across this blog by searching for blogs about foster care as it has been weighing on my heart a little more heavily these past few days.
    As someone who has known for a long time that I want to foster and/or adopt kids with special needs, this blog is so encouraging to me. The way that you fight so strongly for these kids to get them what they need is inspiring, and gives me the hope that one day I can do the same. Just wanted to let you know the impact this blog has had on me, and that I will be praying for Baby 4 and Cataleya that everything goes well with court and the surgery.

  5. "Messy and difficult? Yes. Totally worth it? Yes." Oh yes. Some people think we are crazy and many days I don't have a defense against that accusation. :) Who in their right mind would voluntarily sign up for this ride??? But God.
