Today September 9, 2011...while we were at work, Henry and I got the call for our first Foster Care Placement!!!!!!!
It was funny and surreal. Not scary at all. I felt very matter-of-fact about it. We've waited and planned for this day, and it was finally here...finally.
The crazy part is running to Target to get some things...you see, when you go pick a little person up for Foster Care, you never know what stuff they'll come with.
I'd never given myself the pleasure of spending much time in the baby department of the store. How the hell do you find anything in there???
It's all so little!!!!
I'd gone by myself because Henry was working, and I found myself on the phone with my Mother every 5 seconds. I didn't even know which baby lotion or soap to pick up.
Diaper size anyone???
I'm laughing now, but I was freaking out a little. I wish there had been a camera...and a mic...Seriously.
We left work today, headed over to the appointed location, and picked up the Cutest Little Muffin you've ever seen. I can't say too much about him or the situation that he came to us from. This is Foster Care, and it maybe be temporary, but it sure is a good start.
Here's to semi-sleepless nights and feeling a little fried in the morning!!!
