No Double Pink Line but a Baby Anyway!

Yesterday around 9 a.m. I got a phone call from our social worker:

Birdie, this is A. We've got a newborn baby boy. He's 6 days old. I don't want to get your hopes up, and I don't want to say that it's going to be an adoption, BUT it looks like this could lead to adoption. Would you be able to take him?

I say YES. But let me call Jay first just to make sure.

Well, it doesn't take a scientist to figure out that OF COURSE we said YES!!! And about 7 hours later I was sitting on my couch holding the most beautiful baby boy with a headful of jet black hair!!!

So now we have Big Guy (our 2 year old foster son) and Little Guy (our week old foster son).

Oh my, God is so good!! Of course, we don't know if we will get to adopt. Only time will tell. Will the biological mom get her act together? Will a relative who has a good home come forward? We just don't know. But what we do know is that this precious baby needed a good home, and we are going to shower him with love while he's here - for however long that may be. (And of course I'm so hoping that this baby will indeed become my son!!)

I just had to share this with y'all. And if you're interested in foster care, please feel free to email me! creek jc @ nctc. com (without all the spaces, of course!)

Oh Honey...what a beautiful Christmas miracle!! I'm a little jealous of you right now...I wish we had pursued foster care and not adoption. :(
