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.

Oh, wow. I'm so glad for him and hope they decide to be done.

The system is so layered with complexity. In my simple mind, I wish parents willing to fight with EVERY ounce of their being would...and those that aren't, wouldn't try. Then the kids would win...every time.

VERY MUCH appreciate your closing this loop. Would love if you could write more often but reality and all your children obviously make this both a low priority and a huge amount to ask for. I do hope you can post when adoption has occurred. I think of you all daily and constantly send good wishes and appreciation for what you do in making this world a better place.

Congratulations on your new son :)

I just binge-read your entire blog over the last week or so. My husband and I have been trying to get foster/adoption started for the last year or so (long story why it's been so long) and I can't tell you how valuable it has been for me to read your stories. Thank you for sharing them. Now I have to go look for a copy of your book :)
