A little update

Lots of people have asked, so here's the latest...

The little guy went to live with a new foster family on Friday.
While we were sad to say goodbye, we feel really good about the family.
They have 3 older girls who are super excited about having a baby in the home.
Also, one of those little girls had VERY similar reflux issues and didn't really sleep for the first 2 years.
His new foster mama knows what to expect!

I've gotten 10 hours of sleep the past two nights and feel human again.
Hallelujah!

We also received a call Thursday night for a little girl who was born that day.
I immediately said yes!
Seemed like a perfect placement for us.
However, the caseworker had already contacted a family before she received our home study.
Though we were told we were "the perfect family for her", the other family decided to take her.
I was super, super sad.
Super.

But, we're moving on,
trusting God's plan for our family.
Trusting there is another little one who needs to be in our home.
So, we wait.

Again, we aren't doing foster care just to grow our family,
(as far as we know, we can have more bio babies)
but we are certainly open to adoption if that's the Lord's plan for us.

While we wait, we sleep. :)
And we spend lots of time with just the 3 of us.

We went to breakfast this morning for our little celebration.
We high-fived each other saying, "We took great care of the little buddy! Good job Alice/Mommy/Daddy!"
Then, we went to the park to play for a long time.
It was a really nice, relaxing morning.

So, there you have it!
The latest installment of what's going on in our unpredictable lives.
