Wow Mercy!!! I know she hasn't decided to place or parent, but honestly, that's my dream. A bio sib to my DS. Selfish, I know, but a girl can dream! Lol

My DS's birthmom has been on the Depo shot since being released from the hospital after DS's birth, and her mom takes her in every 3 months like clock work. No baby in *my* future! lol. Wahhhhhhhh

I have a high risk of birth defects, including down's, but my testing came back with levels that they see in 25 yr old patients! I, personally, as a Christian, would say to pray,pray,pray & focus on building your life & healing your health issues & absolutely consider foster care. A wonderful woman in our church thought she would never marry & decided to foster - now she & her new husband are adopting her foster kids.

As for me, We still have no placements. So far we have lost out on 7 month old twins, younger twins & a 2 week old singleton. Frustrated! I recall it taking a long time with our last agency, but I did not expect it this time!
That would be frustrating having the calls and then not ending up with a child! We went from October of 2011 till September of 2012 without a single call! Now we have a precious most perfect little boy! God is waiting for the perfect child to place with you!

Re: February Chat Thread

I had calls of placements I accepted for 7 months before I got a placement that actually came! I think it was five I accepted that didn't happen??? Plus a few other calls I had to deny for one reason or another. We were so close to quitting and possibly trying a private domestic adoption, but that's when we received our first placement. Since then, every placement we've accepted has come! Go figure.

Love the pic! He looks so peaceful...I would have never known he's a screecher. Rootin' for ya...really praying you get the twins Mama! eta: I've always felt like God has been telling me he has twins for us...but I just don't know if I have it in me emotionally (the case). Unless of course they would be bio, but I can't imagine that either. Maybe I am just dead wrong. blah, who knows.

Same here.
DS bio mom did have a baby shortly after having my son but she decided to parent her. I still hold a sliver of hope
