Brian and I met with several important “decision makers” on Wednesday, which was awkward, just as I thought it would be. We had to go over everything we felt we already knew, plus: medical history, family history, routines, school, and foster care. I know DFCS workers must hear and deal with the unimaginable, and am thankful for those that care about their cases. I appreciate that they cared what *little man’s foster parents had to say, and am so thankful that he is in a loving home, and that they also attended the meeting. I feel as though they really are part of The Moore family.
We also already have a transition plan! We are shocked and excited to announce that *little man’s transition begins next weekend! This is our last weekend as a family of 4. We brought *Minion and *C$ to get ice cream and tell them the exciting news that they will have another permanent playmate and brother. Their reaction was sweet.
*Little man will be at our house the next two weekends and part of Spring Break. He will move in on April 6th. We will be intentional about our time together. We will be slow to introduce him. He needs to understand who his people are, and we are so thankful for our people, which will become his people. He will be grieving the loss of an amazing foster family, whom he calls mom and dad at times.
We have an amazing network and are so thankful. He has 3 sets of parents that love him, and we plan to include these family members in his near future. I don’t even know how many loving grandparents, aunts, and uncles this sweet boys has. What a lucky kid. I just hope we can help him see how lucky he is. We are lucky to have him! Happy Lucky Day! (or St. Patty’s as most call it).
