Wow! so much can happen in a few days time.
Yesterday we were asked by the social services if we would take in another foster child, this time a much younger child. This two year-old is literally homeless, not wanted by her mother and her extended family. Our home would be here third move since she was born, and the social services is wanting her placed permanently (guardianship).
Our home is ready, and this is what we wanted, to foster children. But this is permanently and I question my ability, am I ready? Can I open my heart to love someone else's child until they are eighteen? I know we have done this already with my step-graughter, but she came when she was 6, but this little girl is just a baby yet. YES! I know we can, I do feel this a part of GODs plan, this little girl is also family to my nephews children (same Mother just different fathers).
This mother is just a baby maker and has never had custody of any of her children, I think she has 8 total, but two were twins with one who died just weeks after birth. I know GOD will deal with her on His terms and I have no right to judge.
So please, if you can pray for us that if this is GOD's will and plan for that things will work out and that I have faith and courage to accept this. Thank you spark friends :)
