I've mentioned my brother and SIL here before, but just a recap: He (Jared) and Amber were married August of 2003. Amber's daughter Mikkena was nearly 5 at the time (Jared later adopted her). They decided they wanted to TTC right away so that Mikkena wouldn't have a huge gap between her and her sibling.

Well....that was 6 years ago and they've been unable to conceive.

So they decided to foster with the intention of adopting. They were approved 3 or 4 months ago and have just been waiting for a placement.

Well, yesterday they got a call! There are THREE little girls waiting to be picked up on Wednesday. They're sisters, aged 5, 3, and less than a year. I am so stinking excited!!!

Apparently there are also 2 older brothers who have enough behavioral issues that they needed to be separated from each other and their sisters. Oh yeah, and the mother is 21. She decided she couldn't handle the kids anymore and gave them up to the state. I'm hoping that means that Jared and Amber will be able to adopt them without any issues...but if not, they'll be loved for as long as they're in our family!

Just had to share.

Awesome!!! Congratulations to them! Waiting on the call can seem like an eternity. Great that the first step has started. I certainly hope it works out the BEST for those kids. I know they'll be in a fabulous home until their permanency arrives.

Blessings to them all. Invite them to join the JM adoption board if it is something they'd like. Lots of us on there are foster to adopt parents.

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!

That is so sad that the mother is only 21. I personally think if she made the decision in the best interest of her children that that is really loving. I know I've briefly discussed my stepson's mother before and she was 16 when she had him (she got pregnant on purpose to try to get my DH to marry her at the time, he was only 15, so that she could divorce him and be set for life financially since she had his kid...these are her words, not mine) and she also has 2 younger daughters by a different man. DH has custody of son who is seriously messed up at age 10.5 and she signed over her parental rights to the father of her daughter's who then gave the girls to his sister. Now my stepson's mother has nothing to do with any of her children by her own choice. As soon as she was ordered to pay child support for her son whom we have she stopped calling and told us flat out she would not be calling, visiting, writing, etc. any longer. Ugh.

So happy for them!!!!
