And There it is....


Got the call, and here is the story.
Carrot top was featured on "Thursday's Child", for our state's adoption advocacy initiative. This was taped long before we had inquired about him. However, it JUST aired this week. The SW said "that due to overwhelming response to his case, they have decide to put him on hold until all home studies can be read and reviewed."
So we wait. AGAIN! For all home studies to be received, read, and reviewed.
BACK TO SQUARE ONE!
When you decide to do this, you put in the training and hours needed to become a certified adoptive or licensed home. You then, Naively, think that you will be getting "THE CALL" the very next day. No such luck.
We have been at it for a full year now. There is no end in sight. So, we will continue to wait...for carrot top, for "M". For just the right fit.
**SIGH**

lord. come ON!!!!! This totally sucks.

Out of curiosity - you mentioned a while back that you were thinking about doing the foster/adopt... opting to assist kids that were going to be TPR'd.. is this where the adorable redhead was found? Or was that still through the adoption process?

Our red head was found through JUST the adoption process. We will continue oersuing the foster/adopt avenue.

Hey...thanks for your comments!
