Today's the day

I feel physically sick.  Lil' Man's case worker is having a phone conference with the adoptive parents, and their case worker at some point today.  I don't have a good feeling about the adoption.  If they do plan to adopt why haven't they called their Son in 11 days? If they don't plan to adopt why have they let it drag out this long?

On a side note next Wednesday we are taking Lil' Man to the FAS clinic for his one year check up. Can anyone think of anything I should ask? I've got a few questions already.


  1. I had a family that was going to adopt a 6 year old but they wanted to wait until after a family reunion, and then after their vacation, and then after the long holiday weekend, and then... finally the worker told them to either make the commitment or walk away. They walked away. It was a relief at that point because if they didn't want him at the family reunion then they never would have considered him part of the family anyway. Sometimes you have to go by the actions instead of the words.

  2. I know I don't know all of the details, but I just don't feel like this is a good match for Lil' Man. You don't meet a kid, start calls and visits and then just stop.

  3. Sorry to hear you and Lil Man are on the crazy foster-adoptive roller coaster ride. It just stinks!!!!!
