Today we were asked to consider adopting our foster son who has been with us for over a year. We were sort of blindsided by this request. It has always been in the back of our minds but we were afraid to have a real discussion about it this early in the game. Enough of our friends have gone through this for us to know that it's going to be a long process filled with drama and possible heartache. Just because the recommendation has been made, does not mean we will get to adopt our little guy. Here's to hope though, and no matter how it all turns out, at least we will know we gave it out best shot. God has a plan for this little guy and we hope we are a permanent part of it. Either way, we have to trust that the powers that be are looking out for what's best for him.
