Love and Fear
Think about the last five choices you've made. It doesn't matter how simple or complex they were. Write them down. Now, look at each choice. Next to each choice write down the reason you made it. Now, look at your reasons. Everything in life tends to channel through two things. One is love,...

It Actually Happened!
I had given up hope after almost 15 years of being told my birthmother basically did not exist. My caseworker was cold and unemotional. Ironically, she found my full-blooded birthbrother's death certificate and his adoptive family. I started looking about 5 years before he passed away. Over a...

Reality - Ouch
September 28, 2013, 4:59 am
This is going to be a little off topic. It really doesn't fit into my particular blog scope but it's a story worth telling. On a Sunday night I was home with all but my eldest daughter (Pepper) and my second daughter got a frantic message from one of Pepper's male friends. We will call him...
View from the Cabbage Patch
July 16, 2013, 12:50 pm
Cabbage Patch? Thatís where my parents told me I was from. It seems the stork dropped me off in Ohio in their cabbage patch, their special little girl. How many of us have been told a tall tale about our arrival? There are lots of stories our parents told us: we came from Heaven, delivered by...
Space for Older Foster Children: The Importance of Space of Love
November 21, 2012, 2:01 pm
Rumor warned against becoming foster parents of older children while having younger children. That's the advice I'd heard for years. Younger children can't always express their feelings or what's going on, and sometimes it's just easier on everyone if the ages of the children in the home either...

PJ's caseworker came to see her this afternoon. He brought with him her certified birth certificate. He asked me to make a copy. I scanned it and made a copy on the printer. I took it back to him. He seemed like he wanted me to keep the certified copy - "the way this case is going...". I didn't...
Stopping the adoption
March 30, 2014, 11:15 am
I don't know if this would be considered a disruption, since we have never met the young man or not. Back story: We were matched with a 16 y/o boy over a month ago. Redacted files taking over 6 months, so CPS has allowed us to meet his CASA, therapists from RTC, and a counselor from the...
Music to my ears!!!
April 1, 2014, 4:10 am
We had our monthly visit with BG's caseworker yesterday. She gave us a quick recap of the pre-trial, and told us what to expect at the TPR hearing later this months. She then asked us if we had chosen an adoption attorney yet??!! I was in complete shock because no one had informed us that we have...
Name Change
April 9, 2014, 6:16 am
The state caseworker for the boy we were matched with asked us about a name change before we had even met him. We're not a traditional family with the same last names so we don't have any strong desire to change his name at all, including his last name. As far as we were concerned he has a name...
