Day 304 - Big Week Ahead...

Foster care is not easy.

On Wednesday of this week, important decisions will be made in Jonah's case. The decisions made will have a huge impact on Jonah's future. Wednesday could either be our last day with Jonah or the day we learn that Jonah will be available for adoption.

No matter what happens, my heart hurts for sweet Jonah. Either way, I am sad this is what is happening in his life one week before his first birthday.

I do know that as much as I love Jonah, his heavenly father loves him even more and that is what I have to keep reminding myself.

I think a lot of people assume that we got into foster care to adopt. That isn't the case. We have always felt the call to adopt...internationally. We felt called to foster children in our city. We answered the call to provide a safe, temporary home for kids while their parents get their acts together. We had no intentions of adopting through the foster care system. However, as we all know, things rarely go as you intend them to go...haha! If things go the way I expect them to on Wednesday, we will have a big decision to make. I just want what is best for this precious, sweet little boy.

Please pray for the little precious miracle we call Jonah.
