A Big Year for Little Boy Blue...

When I think about this year, I've realized that the person who has the most at stake this year in our current 'family' is Little Boy Blue. Prince Caspian is settled. Yes, his adoption will officially take place in March - a huge celebration.

But itty-bitty is the one who has the decision of a lifetime being made for him this year. We received news today that the termination trial starts on January 31st. Little Boy Blue has one more visit with his Grandfather and Great-Grandmother this Friday. They will be bringing a list of relatives who want a home study done to be considered as his permanent family. We are absolutely the back-up plan ... which is a better place to be than no consideration at all, right?

We really are trusting that the very best will happen for Little Boy Blue's life. The thought of letting him go pierces me; and yet we've known all along that either his Mommy or a family member were the first and second choice.

Thank you, thank you, dear friends for praying and loving this baby boy. I know how many hearts will break with ours if we have to say good-bye. Yet, because of the many people we know are praying, we will rest in the answer.

You, each of you, are a blessing to this family. It is so wonderful to walk beside all of you in this life.

Would you just stop making me tearful when I read your blog? Don't take that seriously. I do love your posts and this one only evoked emotion because, once again, you are called by God to do this incredibly hard thing. And by that I don't mean the loving . . . nothing comes easier than that, but I mean the uncertainties of it all. Praying for sweet Gaby and you guys in what changes may be ahead this year.

That's very interesting...we have a court hearing for visitation termination on January 31st. I have to testify. If you email me, I will give you the details.

I'm behind as usual on reading (I'm just so used to reading your blog in Google Reader that I forget it's private now and I have to come over here and read it this way!)

I can understand and relate to what you're feeling in a little way. Although actually having the one you long to keep living with you has to be way harder than our situation.

We have two more days to wait for a permanency hearing. They're forecasting snow for Sunday afternoon and evening, but I'm praying very hard that it doesn't interfere with court on Monday...
