Adoption Worker

Well, K's adoption worker came over today. She has a very heavy heart about K's last home. She honestly is questioning her job-wondering if she can do this anymore after this last home.

She gave me the papers to start the adoption process. We are still not sure if we will be filling them out or not. I asked her to still put K up on the M.A.R.E. website incase we decided not to adopt him. She said she is going to wait a couple weeks.

Apparently K's current Judge over his case is the same judge that removed him from his mom 4 years ago. She is horrified by these events and said that she will be overseeing K's case from here on out (it had been being overseen by a referee ever since he was taken away). She wants to find him a good home and said "we are failing him".

On, the way out of the house the adoption worker saw the huge frame I have right by the front door with pictures of all my kids in it. When she saw the pictures of K she almost started crying and said "You know, I don't think I ever have seen a picture of K. Never at the other house. This is what kids need." I told her, "I know you don't know me from anyone, but he is safe. He is safe here and I will not let him go to another bad home."

And I meant it.

I have a heavy heart for you guys as you work through your feelings about K and what you feel God is pulling you to. I will be praying for God to make His will for K and your family very clear to you.

Just found your blog and read through a lot of it. I know the heartaches of being a foster parent. All of these children come to us for a reason, we don't always know why, but He does.
