Hubs and I agreed to take a three year old little girl yesterday. She is in a horrible foster home, and needs a place to stay until she goes to her grandfather who is waiting on approaval as a placement. We are willing to take short term placements of older children, and this one fit the bill.
We ended up not getting her. They found a home that was willing to keep her long term, and even adopt, if the grandfather doesn’t work out and the mom can’t get it together. This is the best plan, even if I am a tiny bit sad about not having a sweet baby girl around here for a while.
