One Family In A Box Coming Up.......

As luck would have it, we actually got a referral today. Not only that, we got 2 referrals today.

So, Monday, we will be the proud new pseudo parents of 2 boys. One 7 months old, the other 8 years old.

At this point, that is all we know. Amanda went and did her first motherly duty today. Well, we did do something last night that would be considered the first act of motherhood to the lucky bastards that have kids the old fashioned way. Anyhow, she went and got the school enrollment stuff for the 8 year old today. Unfortunately, we can't do much with it. The social worker will do it Monday when she drops the boys off. We simply do not have the information right now.

So, from famine to feast.

We know that the likelyhood of adoptability of these two is slim to none, but that's ok. It will have us doing SOMETHING instead of fighting with all the other states.

We are relatively certain that we are going to switch over to DHHR from the agency and have a call in to them to start that going. We should know more on that tomorrow.
