I think insanity has hit this house hard this week. Lol
In Monday I got a call from SS. I presumed they were just doing their normal call. Checking to see how things were going. After all it’s only just over two months that we’ve had the girls. I mean there is no way that they would want to place another one with us. Would they? We are first timers. This is our first year. The girls are our first placement.
I was wrong…
After the standard how are things going. She asked me if I felt we were at capacity. (Now as hard as it is to say I had to be realistic on what I can handle and it has been HARD), so I said yes we were.
She then said oh. Because the reason I’m calling is the girls birth mom just had another baby and we would like you to take her as well.
That was such a hard decision.
We talked. We prayed. I asked for prayer. We asked our bio daughter who is 17. We really weighed it out.
This was huge. Our girls were settling in. Calling us Mom and Dad. Pushing. Being normal. Being 3 and 1. Rob works away 2 weeks at a time. And then we were going to throw a brand new baby into the mix?
We said Yes!!!
We brought home with us their sibling.
We now have 3 under 4.
I’m now a mom to 6.
And truth be told I’m loving it.
Hubby is exhausted.
But I have such peace about this decision.
So without further ado I would like to introduce our little bug “Drey”
