He's here, and has been.

For the life of me I can't believe I left off like that.  I have found that eight is the majical number of children that makes it official:  I can't do anything I want ever.  :)

He got here on dec. 22, just like his older sister.  I didn't plan that.  God did.

We have had him for 3 months and we will be finishing the adoption around the six month mark.

Him bios didn't fight for him.  They said they would get lawyers and did not.  They walked out of the termination trial.  They weren't interested in working a case plan.  They didn't appeal the termination.


It makes me happy for us and sad for them.


I can't tell you how much I hope they don't have any more children.  We are maxed out.  They won't let us take anymore even if we want to.  I want the kids together.

Sunday is coming.

when I wrote "history sometimes repeats itself" I had no idea how profetic that would turn out to be.


Two years ago my husband drove over an hour to pick up our new baby four days before Christmas.


On Sunday I will drive over an hour to pick up our new baby four days before Christmas.


I could not make this stuff up if I tried.

The Baby.

So, the baby that was supposed to come last week is supposed to come next week.

For real.

This is what I am dealing with.

According to his caseworker, the paperwork got send back to him because they wanted to know the ages of our children (to make sure we didn't already have 3 under three years old I think) and to see if any of them had any special needs.

At this point I am just glad someone is touching the paperwork I guess.

He is coming.

At some point.

This.

Now you all see what I have been going through.  Last Wednesday I was told, "I will get the paperwork pushed through and we will move him next week."

Well, "next week" came and went without so much as a phone call.


Really?


We have had an insane week.  We closed on our house (yea!  It sold!), but that was not without drama and the drama isn't over yet.  It was just one thing after another that HAD to get done...so I never called either.


I know I need to call and I will be next week, but seriously, when are they going to move this kid!?!


I feel so helpless.  I found out who the social worker's supervisor is and was told, "good luck with her.  She won't do anything."  That was encouraging.

I almost feel like I need to hire a lawyer.


It shouldn't be this hard.

Wednesday.

No call about baby today.

Joslynn fell and bit threw her lip so we sat at the Dr. for an hour in order for him to tell us to put a bandaid on it (no stitches).


Brook decided to pee her pants on our front steps.


Elee was ignoring Ben (my husband) while he was directly talking to her.


We missed Christmas play practice at church tonight.


We are doing great.

Weeks.

After weeks of being told "it will probably be next week" I am not surprised that it is Tuesday and I have not yet gotten a phone call letting me know if baby boy is coming this week.

I have a million things I need to get done.  Did I mention we are moving?  Yeah.


I will let you know when I hear something.
