We are closed. I am still trying to get used to that fact. We have been fostering for 12 years. It actually becomes a way of life; new kids, new adjustments, kids leaving (or getting adopted). As the primary caregiver it kind of leaves me feeling lost and a little sad. However, my very active boy keeps me on my toes and active.
In the morning our lawyer called and had us go in and sign some adoption paperwork. Hopefully we will have a new birth certificate in hand soon. Kassi's took months because she was born out of state but the other birth certificates came within a month.
Then I received a call from Medicaid....for Benjamin's birth mom. I do not know how they have our phone number connected with her. She has never lived here or used our number. We still receive mail for her as well. We call and complain and they promise to remove us but we continue to get her mail. Frustrating.
Then I received a phone call from the middle school. It was this call that made me realize that I needed to continue blogging. Even though the fostering/adoptions are completed. the kids don't suddenly heal from their experiences in their biological homes and foster care experiences. So, next post....Anthony.
