I have a feeling that I’m going to be consuming a lot of coffee in my future. It’s been a crazy 30 hours. I worked Sunday night, went to breakfast with some girls from work and went home to clean. After I was done cleaning, we went to look at a house we were interested in. While walking through the house, we got a phone call from our foster agency saying they had a kid for us. A beautiful, two year old girl who needed a safe place. We instantly said yes and rushed home to finish up her room.
While frantically trying to pick things up and make her room cozy and safe, we got a phone call saying her dad had disappeared with her and they couldn’t find them anywhere. I instantly started tearing up and worrying about her. We all said a prayer and waited anxiously for a phone call. An hour later, we were rushing to the ED to meet the caseworker and our new kiddo. She instantly came to me and fell asleep on my lap. I knew this child had my heart at that very moment.
I wish I could post pics of how adorable she is and how much she loves to snuggle. I wish I could tell you her name but I can’t do that either. We’ll have to come up with a nickname for her.
Jaret is enamored with her. He read her books, played games with her and gave her at least 5 stuffed animals. He has been begging to stay home from school in order to help out with her. She was very leery of Rustin and his beard so he kept his distance and just shared some apple slices with her. I think they will soon be friends.
So, I’ve been up for 30 hours now. I am so bone tired but so wound up. I haven’t slept with a baby monitor by my bed in YEARS. This is going to take awhile to get used to.
But she’s so worth it. It’s going to break my heart to give her back.
