After "they" told us no :o)
And we happen to adore him.
Altho we had a rough start. ;o)
You see we had requested the County "use" us for very difficult to place children and they told us no.
(The County describes difficult to place children as mostly boys with aggressive behaviors.)
They told us in February after CC left that he was a onetime "thing". They were desperate then, but not now.
They said we had "too many" children. They counted the 10 here, not just the 6 with special needs. They said even with Tom here 24/7 that we had 5 children each to watch and it was "too many."
Bless their hearts.
So where do the boys like CC, TA and G go when there is no inbetween from abusive family to permanent Group Home??
To our house! :o)
Yup, they say no to us, until a little boy named G was in the Hospital ER with no one to care for him because his behaviors are over the top. He- was-left-there.
Unlike CC who had no where to go until his state funding would pay for his Group Home. G had a foster family- they gave up on him.
We don't do this for money. We do this for LOVE.
We've done such a good job. We have successfully integrated 2 very aggressive little people into our home. This is Thanks to all of us here, we work together, we don't do it alone.
even me. :o)
We work as a team. We are therapeutic. Our weapon is prayer, God leads us in LOVE.
G's little duffel bag and back pack. These were packed for him as by foster mom as she left him at the hospital and walked away. He cries out her name.................
G adores Tom. Tom drives him to and from school it takes forever for bus service to set up. Tom wears G out when his energy levels are high. Silly Tom, 61 years old chasing G around the kitchen.
We noticed after we bought Mercy cute plush dolls like Minnie and Olivia etc she did not like them. :o( BUT!!! Our boys did! LOL!! So Moses sleeps with Olivia and Pauly carries Mercy's pink purse- its so silly!
So G fit right in, he even came with his own Minnie! ;o)
G's sleeping in his bed here. He's such a good boy. Faith carried him to bed after he fell asleep on the couch.
There's no such thing as a little boy with no where to go as long as Tom and I are here.
Thank You Lord for answering our prayers, and allowing us to LOVE your fearfully and wonderfully made children.
