My home supervisor called last week to say I've received a foster parent award.
I thought she was joking.
But she wasn't!
I even received flowers!
She said that only 4 parents received the award from our agency (out of 140ish families)
and I was one of them.
A couple things to clarify:
1. I did not create a website.
I have no clue how to do that.
I did, however, set up a private blog for our baby's birth mom.
It's an easy way to share photos and information without her having any of our personal info.
2. I'm thankful the desires of my heart haven't been super obvious to her mama or to the visitation supervisor, who nominated me.
The bottom line is that we love this baby and hope she gets to stay in our family forever.
Though it's true we are supportive of her mama, wanting her to get clean and to ultimately know the Lord, we cannot imagine them being reunified.
But, we wait and see.
It is completely out of our hands.
