So our biggest prayers are that the magistrate is looking out for him. We know from being in court at the last hearing that she knows his history, his family and she was happy with him having a routine and a stable life in foster care. As much as we don't want to prolong the inevitable, we also want him safe and happy.
We understand that he may not be with us forever, but we also know how much he is thriving in our home. He knows everyone and everything around him. He is very bonded and happy. He loves Anna and Wy and with school out spends every day with them.
how smart he is
how he knows when it's bedtime
he knows where the candy stash is
he knows what time Daddy gets home
he knows when we turn on mama and papa's street
he knows his teacher at library school
he knows all of the Disney movies
he knows all of his signs
he repeats - daddy, nanny, wy- mommy - over and over until we answer
he remembers all he has learned here
So whose to say he won't miss those things if he leaves.
There are so many unknowns in life. We have chosen to love this little man unconditionally for as long as we can. So far he has made it pretty easy. As difficult and obnoxious as his case has been he has been amazing. Funny, smart, ornery and smiley. An excellent sleeper and a crazy toddler in every sense when he is awake.
So next week or any day you think of him please send an extra prayer up for Baby D. We want what is best for him. A future that will lead him to success and happiness- because even if he is only with us physically for awhile he will be in our hearts forever.
