This week has definitely been one for the birds. Quite literally. Everything that we knew about this foster process, definitely got thrown out the door. With little mans case they had cancelled visits due to both parents not following the services CPS had laid out for them, and so we just automatically figured that we would have him in our house for at least 6 months. Well, the legal worker came to my house yesterday, and told me that a home study was approved for little mans aunt, and that he will be removed from our house next week on Wednesday after his MD appointment.
We feel everything at this time. Happy that he is being reunited with family, sad that he won’t be going back to his mom and dad as planned, wondering if his family will follow all of the strict rules they place on them, and just continuously praying for everyone involved. His parents, his family, his legal team and all of the CPS working on the case, us during this transitioning period, and of course him.
We pray that he knows how to love, how to use language (signing as well) to communicate his wants and needs, to share with others, to have fun with other children, and truly remembers what it was like when all of his needs were met.
We also got told that baby girls track (that we thought was leaning towards terminating parental rights), might be changing as well. We won’t know for sure until the hearing at the end of the month, but this is definitely a huge change in the Johnson household!
We are staying strong in our faith, and knowing that God is placing these precious kids in our lives for a reason, and we are just going to be the best version of ourselves to these kiddos. We know that there will be more children in our future that we will indeed be able to help, and that’s what we have to look forward to in our future.
Please say a sweet prayer for all involved, that would be greatly appreciated. ♥
