Whazzzz up

Hi everyone, sorry about the long hiatus! I was just preoccupied with Not much going on this way, just working and taking care of a very active 20 month old. We've been getting calls about placements but they are not what we can handle right now. I think I've turned down 4 sibling groups. Just to give you an idea one was for a 4 month old and an 18 month old, I can't imagine chasing a 20 month old and an 18 month old while holding a 4 month. Another was for a 3 year old girl and her 5 year old sister, this one the SWer left a msg on my cell phone but I accidentally skipped it and didn't get it for three days. I guess that wasn't meant to be. So we are getting some action just not what we want. I think if spring rolls around and we still don't have a placement we might discuss a sibling group, we'll see what happens.
BTW, A is trying to convince me to switch to our agencies domestic adoption program. It's the same one we use to adopted G but honestly I don't know where we would get the money. And after such a roller coaster ride with G's BM, I'm not sure I can handle being matched and having to wait it out again. But I guess that is also an option if things don't work out through Foster Care.

Oh my goodness...can you imagine a 20 month old, an 18 month old, and 4 month old?? Yikes. Guess you can't either.

It's good that you do have that option of your agency's DA program. Could you do both and see what happens first? Is there a discount for adopting through them a 2nd time? Well, there should be.
