3 More Months

Standard

Baby J is staying!… for at least 3 more months.  The case has been extended and we get 3 more months of giggles and cuddles and love from our sweet boy.

I am so thankful for this extra time with him.  So thankful that for 3 more months he stays here… the home he knows, the people he loves, the family he has relied on for a year.

It is also bitter in the fact that it also means 3 more months of him (and us) getting more attached (if it’s even possible to be more attached than he all ready is). 3 more months waiting to know what the future holds for this little man.  3 more months of being seperated from his biological family.

Fostering is hard.  It’s bitter sweet.

But for now I am so thankful that he is sleeping soundly in his bed, in the house he calls home with the people he loves watching over him.

About thefosteringlove

I love Jesus. I love my kids. I am a foster and adoptive mommy. For 4 years my life has been turned upside down and inside out by 8 kids- some who have stayed for forever (my boys were adopted in March 2011 and I was given custody of my daughter in 2010), some who have left our home but not our hearts... all to the glory of God, all for the call I've been given. In the spare moments of my life I sometimes find time to write down my thoughts and my heart... my heart that is working to foster love, hope and safety into every child who we welcome home. Currently I have 3 forever kiddos and one foster baby... it's a good life!
