Well. I don’t know if this is me back, or not. It is an attempt to plug back in.
In brief. Simeon is adopted.
I am now the mother of a beautiful, whirring, creative little boy. Pinch me. Somedays it still feels like a dream.
Besides the adoption, since I last wrote, we’ve said goodbye to D after 8 months.
We also got a newborn baby boy. He’s amazing. We had planned on taking in his 2 year old brother. Yesterday we were scrambling to figure out if we could also take his 4 year old brother. Then, in a crazy and sickening turn of events, he’s being returned to his family this week.
I have no idea what’s happening to his brothers. Also, he has a herniated belly button. Also, he has reflux. Also, his mom is… his mom is…. Well, I don’t think his mom is going to succeed. I really don’t . And I really don’t like saying goodbye when I don’t even have an inkling of confidence that this is all going to be OK.
But I trust that God is in this. If I didn’t, D’s goodbye and this one would not be possible.
In lighter news, I’m feeling a bit dry. So, we’re going to take two weeks off (I think) from fostering. Then we’re going to reassess and we may stay this break through the first of the year. I’m looking forward to speding some much needed time loving on MY SON!!! and catching up on some blogging.
Friends, I actually have a lot to say. And I’ve sent some prospective foster parents here, so I should probably talk about what this crazy journey is like. I’ll try.
Thanks for remembering us. Thanks for checking in. Love y’all bunches!
