I got an e-mail today from our worker letting me know that she has changed our profile in the system so that intake can tell we are open for placements. I was wondering what act of God had kept our phone from ringing off the hook for the last week and a half! Shouldn't be long now. She also warned me that they have had a lot of big sibling groups coming into care as of late, and that I really should feel perfectly open to saying no when they call. (She knows me well, ha!) She also said that knowing that we're just the biggest push-overs in the mid-west and that even if she tells us not to feel bad, the chances of us turning down a placement come very close to zero! Ha!
Anyway....I really posted to link to
Let me just say Amen and Amen!
You should read it. It really is fabulous.
