Friday, October 23

We've got the sweetest little redhead sleeping in the library-turned-family-closet-turned-bedroom right now.
Social services called while we were at homeschool co-op lessons this morning and asked if I could pick her up in an hour. Some frantic scrambling (um..where DID today go?), a visit to her pediatrician, and before I knew what hit me I was home with a little girl Chase's age, sipping a cup of Earl Grey and watching Sean make an amazing rack of venison for dinner. Whew!
My kiddos are fascinated by her and everything she does. Even Chase. Ella is currently sitting in the rocker in her room, watching her sleep and giving me updates every 2.4 seconds.
I don't think this will be a long term placement but we have happy full hearts to share this evening.
Enjoy yours,
Hannah

That is so wonderful! Is she your first foster child? My husband and I have been thinking about this ourselves. Thank you for sharing this part of your life. It encourages others more than you know.

P.S. Are you able to post pictures of her online?

Allison, it doesn't take any special superpowers to foster. Plan on doing it!

Thanks, Carissa... and Anna... and Acacia!

Jenn, she is our first placement and while we are hoping to foster to adopt, it seems like she'll eventually be going to one parent or the other. Do it -there is such a huge need!

Thanks, Lydia, I can't post photos of her face online so you'll have to see her in person on Friday.:)
