The Ball is Rolling. . .Slowly, but Rolling

L talked to our home development worker and her supervisor. She thinks baby N is a wonderful opportunity for us and will push us near the top of her list to finish the home visit since we have a placement oppurtunity! She says there is no reason to delay, because he needs to start bonding with us as soon as possible. She told L she would email the social worker as soon as she got off the phone with him.

The next step: A meeting with social worker and her supervisor to discuss baby N's medical needs, to make sure we will continue with his surgeries and discuss how to care for him with the cleft lip and feeding tube. The home development worker suggested we get a second opinion from another doctor. We will ask the social worker if that is OK if we pay for a consult and finish treatment with another doctor after the adoption (Texas Children's hospital probably).

I think we will get to meet our possible future son soon! I just pray I have the strength and ability to take care of him and that after his surgeries, he will be a happy healthy little boy!

    Congrats. It sounds like it is moving right along. If I could offer some advice. This little guy has been through a lot. I just finished reading a book by a guy named Peter Levine called Waking the Tiger, Healing Trauma. He has a lot of info about healing trauma with children (medical procedures can cause major trauma) on his web site http://www.traumahealing.com

    VERY exciting!!!! My husband had a cleft palate when he was born. He had a few surgeries-- but turned out fine! :)

    I am praying for you and sweet baby N. It sounds like you will make a very loving home for a little boy that needs so much love right now.
