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.
