Foster Care Family Planning

It takes a special kind of crazy to have a not-yet-three-month-old and be shopping for a second crib or toddler bed.  Debating the merits of each.

It’s a special kind of family planning. Will we have a 4 year old and ten year old this summer?  Will we have a second small one?

How many emergency placements will we have between now and May when Croi and I make a decision about the next big one? (if I can push her and her ticking clock off that “long.”)

I don’t want to buy a second crib if Pumpkin’s sisters are coming this summer… but we may need one for the meantime.


Catholic wedding ceremonies include the phrase “Will you accept all children lovingly from God?”

Guess I’m pretty Catholic after all.

  1. That kind of crazy is the best.

    We have a permanent crib. We also have a small pack n’ play with a bassient option in our room for emergencies. Simeon has bunk beds. We have one bed in the same room as the permanent crib. We also have three twin bed mattress sets stored in our basement for emergencies. We’ve been blessed with more storage space than living space. It is a strange kind of planning… wonderfully strange 🙂

    A very special kind of crazy. 🙂 But you’re getting as prepared as you can be for such a wild unpredictable ride!
