I was talking to my cousin last night (mom to four under 5!) who had a large rummage sale while we were in Mexico. I told her that we were looking into foster-to-adopt, and when she had her next rummage sale, to please let me know. She said, “I wish I would have known, I’d have given you two cribs!” (So sweet.) Then said, “Keep me posted when you know age/sex, etc. and I’ll just put that aside for you.
Yes, next April, a three month old baby boy and his 2 year old sister will come into your house.
Doesn’t quite work like that.
I explained that this was about a 12 step process, and we are on step one. And, that we will need to be prepared for the basics by step 10, but it could still be a bit before “the call.”
