A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

A Month

Little Precious has been with us a month!  It doesn't really seem like it's been that long.  She is growing like gangbusters and has officially outgrown NB sleepers (not long enough).  She weighed 9 lbs 3 oz at her one month check up, where the doctor pronounced her good on all fronts.  That's up quite a bit from 7.5 lbs at birth!

She sleeps well, over three hours at a time, which lets me get some sleep at night.  I am getting better at staying awake during the middle of the night feedings so I can go back to bed.  Spending three hours in the recliner/rocker just doesn't make for a good night of sleep.

The other kids have adjusted really well to Precious.  I honestly don't think we have struggled at all, other than me getting enough sleep. 

I have heard nothing from the case manager or case aide in the last week.  Apparently mom is not asking for visits, because none have been scheduled after the last two no shows last week. 

There is so much to be thankful for...
   a healthy baby
   all the kids getting along
   no sickness in the house
   Sweets here this weekend
   all doing well in school
   a great job
   good friends
   all of our needs met
   an awesome God whose plans are bigger than all of ours!


  1. I just love hearing about this sweet baby girl. God's plans sure are bigger than we can even imagine! And aren't they GREAT?! :)

  2. I have followed your blog off and on for awhile now. Was excited to see that you had a new placement! We have had many foster children, one we adopted, and one biological. Yesterday we handed over our 1yo foster son to grandparents, so at the moment no fosters. It is truly quite the journey.
