Update to "Waiting Game"

Three days after I wrote the last post, we had a training meeting with other local foster families, our licensing worker and others. It gave me a fresh perspective about why we are trying to do this fostering stuff.

When we told our social worker that we were seriously considering giving up on DSS and adopting from another agency, she said "oh, well whenever people say that, they usually have a placement within a week."

Sure enough, 4 days later, she called us.
A baby needed a safe place to stay.
Would we be willing to take a baby?

Well, how could I say no to a baby?!

So yesterday we brought home a new baby.

We don't know how long the baby will be with us, and in this particular case there are certainly more questions than there are answers... but for now, we will take care of that baby the best we can, sleepless nights and all, and leave the worrying up to God.
