parents...(finally)

So we got placed with a 2 month old foster baby this week. I can't say any details about his situation, but I can say that he is really adorable. We are so grateful he's in our home. His circumstances for being placed in a foster home are sad, but we feel blessed we can love him and keep him safe.

He smiles at me often and looks at me with so much love. He is precious. I feel like I've been given a million dollars and that nothing in the world matters as much as him. We don't know how long he'll be with us, but we hope we can be good parents to him while he is here.

EM! Haven't been on here forever, I didn't know! I hope things are going well, what a great attitude, to "love him while he's with you"- you can fill up his love basket for as long as you can and that will bless his life forever. I'll be praying for you to have energy and peace and help when you need it.
