Bubbles' Sibling

First, please, please email your requests to enter the palace to lhotard79 at yahoo dot com. I have a hard time keeping up requests from the comment section, so if you don't mind, those of you who requested entrance to the palacein my comments a couple posts ago, please email me and I will add you as soon as I can.

I am so furious right now and waiting on a call back. The supervisor at social services told L that I told her I wouldn't be able to take the baby because it would be too much on me!

That is not true. I've always been aware of the possibility of the baby coming into care and always agreed Bubbles' and the sibling would be a "package deal." She must be confused, because we told her we could not handle her mom. Anyway, when she calls back, I need to explain that I am willing(and thrilled) to take a newborn, which will make my 3rd baby under 2 years old! I will attempt to explain this without sounding insane.

Will it be hard? Yes, but no harder than twins or triplets, probably easier because there is space between the babies. I have made arrangements. Child care is lined up. I'm working ahead on my lesson plans and Smiley and Bubbles both sleep all night (8pm-6:30am knock on wood), so I would theoretically only be up with one baby. The first few months will probably be very rough, but in the long run, I may get to adopt 3 wonderful kids!

Oh, btw, Bubbles' mom is released but Dad is still in jail on an insanely high bail.

    Did she have the baby yet? Do you know what she is having? Due date??

    Stand your ground! We lost a baby because she had to be placed with her siblings adopted by another couple. You have Bubbles & should have first choice at fostering the baby too!

    Praying for you!!!!

    You should have 1st chance at a sibling to a child you already have in your home. At least in our county there is no other option unless you absolutely positively cannot take the sibling for some reason.

    As for 3 kids under 2 - It's a LOT of work but it's do-able. I did it for a few months with 2-20 month olds and 1-8 month old. It's so rewarding!

    Praying for you...
