Today we are feeling kind of sad. Early in December we submitted our homestudy for a couple of sibling groups that were foster to adopt. We assumed we hadn't been chosen because it had been so long since we had submitted for them. However, we got a phone call on Monday afternoon saying that we had been chosen as one of three families for a sibling group of three and that the case would be staffed today. We have never been chosen as one of the families before and this brought excitement/nervousness. Three kids! Could we really do three kids! The answer was still yes and we moved forward with making a life book to tell about us. Today the children's CPS workers, CASA workers, lawyer, and current foster families had a phone conference with our social worker and the social worker for the other two families that had been chosen. Ultimately our family wasn't chosen for these three little ones. I'm glad that we had the opportunity to follow God's plan and see it play out the way He wants it to, but a saddened that we weren't the family chosen for these three precious children.
We are continuing to submit our homestudy for legal risk or foster to adopt children only. Hopefully one day soon we will have some forever children living in our home.
