I’ve made a name for myself at Lil’man’s school, and school has only been in two weeks. The only time I have had any lengthy conversations with the school was at the IEP meeting.
A friend of mine told me today that a friend of hers (who is a aid at the local Elementary school) is interested adopting a little boy.
The little boy is a student in one of the classes she helps out in.
My friend asked the aid what the Childs name is..Turns out it’s Lil’ Man.
The aid then said “word around school is that the foster family has their shit together, but they don’t want to adopt him.”
She cannot understand why we do not want to adopt, “such a sweet little boy.”
I told my friend “geez that makes me feel real good.”
Yes, he is a sweet little boy, and I love him.
We are foster parents, not adoptive parents. We did not come into this to adopt. We were chosen to be his foster family until he finds his forever family.
I wonder what else they think about me.
