Baby E 7 Week Update


A lot has changed since I’ve last posted.  Lets start with the good.  We found an awesome doctor for Everett, that is much closer to our home.  He is incredible and the visit went awesome.  He took his time, listened to all my concerns, and genuinely seemed interested in our family.  It was probably my best experience at a doctor’s office.  This is all good seeing as we now have children and hope to be living here for a very long time.

Everett is 7 weeks old and weighs 10.6 lbs.  He is 22 3/4 inches long.  The doctor said he looks like he will be a big boy and is very healthy.

In other news….

We got an update about his case.  His birth mom has mentioned family that she wants him with.  Up until this point we have been told she has no family.  Now, apparently, there is family involved (I say involved, but right now they haven’t came forward to claim him… because the bio mom mentioned some names, DHR HAS to check into them to see if they are a valid placement.)  This news saddens us so much.  Obviously they have to want him and they have to check out with DHR standards.  We desperately need prayers again.  This is going to be a long 12 months (if no family checks out then they will terminate the birth mom’s rights at 12 months.)

I don’t mean to sound harsh or insensitive.  It’s always hard to think of a child being taken away from their birth mothers, but if the moms are unfit or unable to care for the children it IS best if they are taken.  They are given 12 months to get their lives in order or come up with family members that can care for the children.

We know we can provide Everett with a loving, stable, God-fearing home.  We know we are what is best for him.  Please pray with us!

This is a story of two lovebirds who got in a little over their heads, or at times it feels that way, remodeling a little home built in the 1940's. Our journey has bumps and twists, ups and downs, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Please join us and our two poodles as we flip this old house and work towards the adoption of our first child!
