Well, our foster parent break lasted three days. We just got another call to pick up a one month old baby. Heidi said “No” with no small reluctance — we just haven’t caught up on sleep yet — but agreed to take one of the older siblings. So Heidi’s on her way now to pick up a three year old African American boy. So we’ll have a new kid when I get home from work. Merry Christmas!
And this is a CPS case where they’ve been removed from the home. We don’t know the story about what this kid’s been through or how long he’ll stay with us. We’re going in blind here. Blind faith
