I know this may not make sense to some of you.
We got our first phone call!
Newborn boy. Born drug addicted. Caucasian. Lots of family involvement.
We are hoping for a sibling pair. And are totally open to race. We felt that there are many homes that would want a caucasian baby, and fewer that would want an african american sibling pair, so it just didn’t seem right. And, we can’t afford to take an [unpaid] leave from work, to then have a child returned to his family.
We did tell the placement worker that if she goes through her list and doesn’t find a placement to call us back 😉
And Tracy–looks like you’re the winner of the book “One Day.” Guessed it on the nose. Guessed placement date of 10/21–that’s this Friday–so I hope you’re right.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address & I’ll send it in the mail!
