#AdoptionTalk Linkup: Foster Care Chaos

Since May in National Foster Care Month, we decided to add foster care as an optional topic for this week’s “Anything Goes!! #AdoptionTalk Linkup.

I had a great post planned for y’all – all the different ways (besides fostering) that you can support foster kids and foster families. I was going to have a roundup of great articles with different ideas, as well as my own thoughts….

And then Tuesday, I got a call…

Waiting for Baby SisterWe have a baby girl being released from the hospital today. She’s 11 days old and are you able to go pick her up? 

Long story short, I asked the twins if they would like a baby sister for their birthday (today), started dragging out the baby gear, and waited to hear when I could pick her up….

Which ended up being late yesterday afternoon, after sitting in the NICU watching her sleep for a couple of hours.

So as you can probably imagine, my life is just the tinest bit chaotic at the momFoster Care Chaosent….



I promise that you will get the roundup post this month, just not today.


But don’t let that stop you from joining and enjoying this week’s

    What exciting news!!! Wishing you all the best as you add one more to your family! If baby girl is coming out of NICU, my guess is that you may have your hands full with her special needs. My thoughts and prayers go out to you as you calm her nerves and spend lots of one-on-one time with her.

      Thank you. When I read your comment, my first thought was “what do you mean? I had 24 hours notice…” LOL – Realities of foster care. 🙂
