Updated.. she's gone to a family memeber

Maybe I'm seeing things, I though it was called fostercare and adoption
Anyway we have some good news, we are getting a baby tomorrow 11mths girl. I can't wait. Dd (3) is all excited, I have to dig through the closet to find clothes till we go shopping. Good job I still have all Dd's clothes form years gone by.
No info on her size, they said no problems.
Not that I believe them till she's here. I've been to pick up a 2yo before that turned out to be a on year old. You ever know.
I pulled out the Graco bucket seat from my closet, seeing she's 11mths I'm assuming she'll fit, if not we'll have to go get another rear facing seat that goes past 22lbs.
So I'll update when we get her and I get everyone settled.

She's gone to family this morning, no baby for us.

Re: Wasn't his called Foster and adoption or something?

Congrats girl! We do foster care as well! We currently have 5 children under 5!!! We are in the process of adopting 2 of them. They call it fost-adopt.

I am so happy for you! That rocks! I am in Sacramento.. it says you are in N cali... I just opened up a group for women in our area on meetup.com. If you'd like to come on there and share your stories and meetup every once in a while with others who are fostering and adopting we'd love to have you!

fosterparent-24@meetup.com

Come join us! And have fun tomorrow picking up your little girl!

Thats funny I looked at the group in Sac on meet up .com just the other day.
I'm in the hills east of Lodi. I'm about an hour an half from Sac.
Takes me 1.5 hrs to get to the Folsom outlets straight across on the hills.

Will you get to keep her and adopt her or is there a chance she will go back to her birth parents? I would love to do this one day but I don't know that I could handle giving the child back. Congrats by the way

She is an emergency placement, we won't know what is happening with her till the first court date sometime this week then go from there.
We already adopted Dd and think we are done, but if she fits our family and it turns to adoption we will probably say yes. She is baby number 16 for us in the last 8 years and so far all have left (except for Dd) they have gone to family or home to Mom or Dad.

Congrats and have fun getting everything ready for the little one.


I worked with a guy that wife did this. She only took babies but she loved it, she was one of the people that got me hooked on cloth and prefolds. Said it was easier to keep the on hand and not worry about a bunch of different sizes since she never knew ho big or little the baby would be.
