Babies.

Baby is sick so all she wants to do is lay on me and sleep.

Sometimes I think that I may be better at this fostering thing than this adopting thing.

Holding other people's babies feels right and easy.

Holding kids that might be mine, could be mine has yet to feel "right"...and that is bothering me.

Bless you.

What you say about holding the babies--that is right. That is doing it unto the least of these. It is like holding Jesus Himself.

It is all of the surrounding junk that sucks.

You have such a loving and caring heart! Those kids are so, SO lucky! And I am praying for you, that thing with Joseph will be revealed! God has a plan for that little boy, and for you and your family! Don't forget that!

God will reveal His plan in His time. Be patient friend and keep sharing Him love with these little ones!!

I think wkhen you know they will be *yours* it's a whole new ball game...which is why, when people ask if we will adopt him, I always say, "He's a foster child. That's not an option righ tnow." And I'm comfortable saying it.'

It is what it is.

I feel the same way most of the time. I care for my foster kids, I love them, but I feel like I would love them differently if they became my adopted kids.

Lifting you up.

I think in part at this point it's you guarding your heart from falling too far in love with him.
