After something coming up last week, I finally got to talk with the girl's case worker on the phone. Wow. Each of these kids' stories break my heart, and hers is no exception. She's been in theraputic homes and such to help her, but she is doing much better now from what I'm told. I felt I could trust the case worker on that because she was open and honest about this girl's past.
Its a little scary. It
makes me a little nervous. But I think that's a normal reaction. We
found information out about another child and I just knew she wasn't for
us. With this girl, I think she could be. I think we could be a good
fit for her. And I was glad to hear that non of our "deal breakers"
were met. After learning all I did about her, the picture painted in my
head came down to a girl who needs permanancy, who needs to be wanted,
who has a caring spirit and just needs time to heel and grow.
I should be getting even more information in an email. Tonight my husband and I will be able to go over everything I know and decide if we want to put our hat in the ring. It sounds like there are 2 other families being considered and one family will be chosen relatively soon for her. I will be praying continuously until a desicion is made on both ends.
