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.
