Lil Buddy has a new case worker. I met her today and she's very nice. I was friends with our old caseworker, so it was sad to leave her, but she was assigned a sibling set of 8 and had to give up some of her singletons to make it work. Lil Buddy was passed on to this new worker who just happens to be one of the adoption workers. YAY!! That just reassures me that they are planning for him to be adopted by US!
She said the homestudy on Lil Buddy's paternal grandmother had been denied. That is FABULOUS news on the adoption front, but also kind of sad for him. It's a weird situation to be in... hoping so much he can be my forever son and also hoping so much that he could live forever with his biological family. In the end I just want what is best for him. So unless the family decides to fight that judgment, TPR should be in the near future. I'm just so ready for him to have that permanence and for me to be able to fight for him like I would my bio child (right now I have to go through SO many hoops instead of just calling the one doctor I need or the one agency I need).
In other news, after being the annoying person who called every single day for three weeks, I have finally got the paperwork needed to get him enrolled into the feeding clinic. I had to take it DHR today to get his worker to fill it out (one of those many hoops to get him what he needs). I'll pick it up tomorrow if we aren't snowed in and take it to the other town over to the feeding clinic and hopefully schedule our first visit... which I'm sure won't be until after the first of the year... but as long as we have a visit, I'm happy. I just want to give him every opportunity and I feel like he's been falling through the cracks for too long.
That is sooooooo wonderful!!!! I imagine that would be tough - you don't know who to cheer for - but as long as you pray for the best, I'm sure it will all work out in the end Please continue to keep us updated! I can't wait til it's okay to show us pictures!!!! I'll bet he's adorable!
