A little girl is coming to live with me!! Pics post 11 :)

I don't have much time to write right now as I've got a bunch of stuff to get ready (as well as packages to get mailed out), but i just got a call from the placement unit and they have a little girl for me I was soooo hoping that the next baby I would foster would be a little girl! What was really neat is that I was specifically requested by the supervisor to be the foster mom for this little one. I had worked with one of the social workers that she supervises for my last placement, and she thought this would be the perfect home for this baby. We will be calling her "Rosa" - with a spanish accent (that is not her given name, but is close enough that she could transition to whatever her parents want to call her)

I don't know all of the reasons that she was removed from her parents, but they are very you (as in probably sophomores in high school if they are even in school), but at least there were no drugs involved.

In one area, I have to give MAJOR kudos to her mom... she is breastfeeding whenever she can get to the hospital, and she is pumping at home to provide the hospital with breastmilk to feed her when she is not there She's young, but at least she knows what is best for her baby. I don't know how long she will keep pumping, but the supervisor was hoping that I would be willing to work something out to get the breastmilk from mom as that is what she wants her baby to keep being fed with. Like I would say no, lol. I'm so used to using formula, but I'm excited to be able to do this for this babe. Hopefully I'll be picking her up tomorrow!
