It's Official!

L went and picked up baby N this morning, along with all his baggage. It was a sad goodbye for foster mom and her daughter. I feel bad for them, but she's adopted her 8 children already. They offered to babysit. I accept! We will definately keep in contact.

Wow! Our own little bundle of joy and bundle of responsibility! It's sometimes weird raising someone else's baby. It's like I worry extra more. If something happens, I have to tell his mom, then there's the possibility of being investigated. I'm even having So Young "babysit" the nurse to make sure she doesn't mistreat baby N or nap all day. It's sad, but you just can't trust people until they can prove themselves trustworthy.

I went to the doctor this morning. After coughing so much I was gagging and throwing up, I called to see if she had an opening. Lucky me, the receptionist told me to come right over. Got some good meds L is picking up for me, so hopefully we will both feel better soon. With a cold that hasn't gotten better in almost a week, I wanted to make sure it wasn't bronchitis.

Baby N is feeling bad too. He went to the doctor and he said it was just a cold, and thank goodness it's not pnemonia. He just came off of antibiotics a couple weeks ago, so poor thing will have to suffer it out.

I can't believe it! My first placement! I hope I get to keep him!

    Oh the joy! Oh the stress!! Hoping your weekend goes okay with all the changes. I think it tough when you get a placement, it is so exciting, but such a let down when you are tired, frustrated, and it always takes a while to adjust. Good luck! It isn't all good feelings, there are some hard times coming too, allow yourself to have ALL the feelings that come with this.

    Yay, how exciting for you!!!! You are in my thoughts and prayers. Yes, here anyway, a foster home study is not the same as an adoptive home study, so off for another round of questions and being under the microscope! :) Have fun with baby N!!!
