So it looks like we wont get the baby, despite the fact that we are more than willing, and able to care for him. He is from a county six hours away from us. They are trying to place him closer to accommodate visits with his birth Mother.
So the baby will stay in the hospital where he has been since birth. Unless they find someone in their county or come to their sense, and place him with us.
So his monthly visit with his birth Mom is worth leaving him alone in a hospital without a family. I am all for reunification, with the birth family, but at what cost?
I should have known better, I shouldn't have gotten so excited.
Maybe I am putting too many emotions into this whole foster care thing, but its upsetting when we get a call. They give you all this information. You paint a picture of this little person in your head. You open up your home, you get excited, you make a mental list of everything you need
All for nothing..
