Boys

Well, first I let out something about the conversation with Princess' mom. She said she was clean, but her speech was slurred and L could here it and wasn't even on the phone with her. I don't know if that means she was lying, or her voice is permantly like that for years of using. I will give her a follow up call in two weeks to check on her. I pray she really turns it around.

Well, we got a call for 2 boys, age 2 and 7 mos. Mom has repeatedly been testing positive for mom. Boys are with grandma, but she cannot adopt them. Great grandma(she's 68) just started the paperwork for an out of state homestudy to take them. After some thought, we decided not to take them. We really want a girl.

Friday(the next day), we got a call for another 2 boys, age 2 and 1. Mom has just been sentenced to 15 mos, and hasn't done a bit of her caseplan and dad wants nothing to do with them. They want them moved from a foster to adoptive home so they can go for TPR. We decided to take them. If we get a girl or newborn later, we'll take it too. Hey we are crazy since we're foster parents.

The boys should be here by the end of the week. Help!! I'm seriously outnumbered.

    Yay!! Boys are great. We had 3 boys before we got our princess and let me tell you, boys are MUCH easier. (((HUGS))) You'll have your hands full with 3 toddlers though, how exciting. :-)
