Another twist in our foster care journey!!!!!!!!!!!

We were out of town all day today, and while we were away, I recieved a call from our new adoption social worker-since we have finally been switched over to the adoption unit as DCFS!

It was a call I NEVER expected!! She asked me something that had never even crossed my mind. I was, literally, shocked!

I hung up the phone...and told DH that he would never guess what she was asking...here were some of his guesses, and none of them were even close:

Oh no! The relatives are back in the picture for baby L now that we are so close to adoption?? Nope.

Baby L's mom is pregnant again?? Nope.

Baby C's mom is pregnant again?? Nope.

Baby C's parent's are making some kind of false allegations? Nope.

So, he also was stunned when I told him what it was all about...

Like I said before, this is something we never saw coming, never even thought about, or discussed, because it is something that we never thought would or could happen. We don't know what we will do. She wants us to call back next week after we have thought about it. Obviously we have a lot of soul searching and praying to do...I am still baffled and surprised and honestly just need to go spend some quiet time with the Lord.

I understand that you need this time to think about things and I will pray for you. I must admit, however, that I am chomping at the bit to know what was so stunning. :)
