Yesterday I called Sherry just to check in on her and see what was going on.
She told me that she spoke to “Roseanne”, a woman that has taken care of Buddy before her and has said if Sherry & Charles don’t want to adopt him she would, and asked her to consider what was best for Tyler and told her about us. She said she would consider it. Sherry also called Buddy’s social worker and left her a message and plans on telling her about us when she calls her back.
Of course Ben and I have been discussing that many possibilities that surround us perhaps ending up with Buddy. There are many questions and concerns, especially with us going to the same church as them and living so close to them. I am hoping that it could be a positive thing, that not having to have them completely yanked out of his life would help him not feel so abandon but it might do the opposite. I don’t know. There are so many if’s and and’s and but’s it makes my head spin. I know that the chances are slim in everything working out in our favor, but we all have to leave Buddy in God’s hands. He loves him more than any of us do. He will take care of him.
