The holidays are usually quiet in the Land of Adoption. People tend to put off their decisions for the new year. That being said, there have been three emergency placements in the last three weeks at Bethany.
Sadly, there was an incident of a failed Foster to Adopt through another agency that came to my attention, it really made me sad, and the situation, from what I hear is just another example of how DSHS gets it completely wrong. I'm really happy that we chose the agency we did. I want all of my disapointment before placement. I want placement to be uneventful and as smooth as possible. My prayers are with the couple in question tonight, as they've become empty armed again and now face the decision to put themselves back out there. I can't imagine their sadness. I don't want to imagine it, and I REALLY don't want to experience it. I pray for their strength, their courage and their committmement to being parents. God knows why; and someday you will know why too.
