Another Delay

Don't worry. The visit is still on for tomorrow.

Bad news: It is unlikely he will get to come home with us for the weekend.

Here's the new plan, though it's not set in stone.

1. Visit Baby N tomorrow. Foster mom will bring feeding supplies and teach us. If we are comfortable (and want to assume liability) and her supervisor approves he gets to come home for the weekend, but it's not likely.

2. Schedule a visit at foster mom's house with nurse. Nurse will determine if we understand the care he needs.

3. Social worker comes to our house. We give an official, "yes we want him."

4. Bring baby N to stay with us.

Her supervisors want him with us before his first surgery, which is May 12. I told this is all fine, but I do have a job I need to keep and it's approaching the 5-10 days that I really cannot leave work.

Her reasoning makes sense, but it sucks REALLY BAD. She doesn't wanna give birth mom any reason to throw a wrench in the case. She wants a solid, legal adoption.

Will finish story later. I'm running out of lunch time.

    THE VISIT IS TODAY - WOOOOO HOOOOO!!! I'm stalking your blog to see how it goes. :) Dear Lord, please give my friend your peace that surpasses all understanding. Guide her thoughts that she would know your good and perfect will. Hold her close, yet allow her to feel this joy that comes from you!
