There are Three.

Well, there are four. But, in our city, there are 3. Three children by Pumpkin’s mom who are in foster care. Three children–in three different homes. (A fourth is living in a state far away with her father’s family.)

When we were originally called about Pumpkin, we were told, “There is a four year old girl that someone may approach you about someday.”

We were so proud of ourselves for not thinking obsessing about this child (too much.)

Then, we were told, there is a 4 y.o. and a 6 year old 9 year old that someone may talk to you about. Now, someone has talked to us about them, a little.

We developed the pictures from a disposable camera we had sent to a visit, (wanting to have pictures of Pumpkin’s family in his room).

Put faces to the names. Spent hours looking for the story in each of their faces.

During visitation drop-offs and pick-ups we have each met them.

Put a little personality to their faces.

They’re beautiful. Adorable girls.

It’s out there now. It can’t be put back.

No one is pressuring us now, but it is out there.

    How do you feel about taking on the sibling group? I’m assuming that’s what the “talking to you” is all about. Wow. That’s a lot to think about. ❤

    Wow. Definitely something to think carefully about. Hope you can find time for some soul-searching among the newborn care, job changes, etc. – not an easy task!! The right answer will find you, though. I’m sure of it.

    This is how it happens. They wedge their way into your hearts. You see their little faces when you close your eyes. It’s really amazing that way. And that you are open to loving them says so much. Prayers that your decision will be the right one. Prayers that wisdom for all involved abounds.
