not looking good.

I've been doing a decent job of just waiting from a phone call from Sarah or A to give us an idea of where things were headed. But, Sarah called yesterday about something completely unrelated and I had to ask if she'd heard from A's sister lately. She hadn't, but said she'd give her a call.

She just called me back to say that she had spoken to A's sister, who said she hadn't talked to A much. As far as she knows, she hasnt made a decision yet, but A asked her if she could borrow her Pack 'n Play. So, it sounds like she's planning to keep the baby. Unless she is getting a puppy and wants to use the pack 'n play as a dog crate. But, that's doubtful. Apparently there's more to the story and A's sister didn't have time to elaborate. So, I should be finding out a little more later.

I'm trying to maintain my composure. On one hand, I expected this and thought I would be prepared to handle the disappointment. On the other, I was secretly planning my mad dash to the store for diapers and such.

If you know me, you know I'm already wanting to plan my next move so that I don't feel the pain from this blow. But, I'm trying to be still and wait. The thought of fostering through DHS and hopefully adopting thereafter has been on my mind a lot. It seems that the situation presents itself almost daily lately. See...there I go already...

I know it could still go either way, and I'm praying that this takes another direction than the one it appears to be going. But for now, it's not looking good.

Erin, I love that your humor can still be present in such a trying time, or atleast I found the puppy comment humorous. :)

You know I'm praying for you girl.

Oh Erin, my heart just aches for you and Heath! I have no idea what to say other than I am praying for you and that this situation goes your way! ((HUGS)) to you sweet girl!!!

I am so sorry to hear that, but who knows, maybe it will turn around! Fostering a DHS child or children is extremely difficult as those children usually have emotional issues from being abused and neglected so huge kudos to you for considering that as an option. There is definitely a need for good foster parents in this state. From what I've read, I think you guys would be great parents, foster or otherwise.

I can't imagine how hard this must be for you two. I am praying for both of you as well as the birthmother.

I'm so sorry :-( It's so so so HARD not to get attached to each situation.. when in just a few moments time your life could change so drastically.

It always hurts :-(
