We’ve stayed in sporadic contact with the boys’ case worker this summer and it seemed like the timing was right to invite them over for an overnight visit this week. Coincidentally, it also happens to be A4-soon-to-be-5’s birthday tomorrow, so we scrambled together a little party here at our house. Our family alone pretty much = instant party, but we did invite another family over and their three boys and that REALLY = instant party.
It was a tiny bit of effort for a whole lot of communicated love and I think it’s safe to say: mission accomplished. He was one happy boy tonight.
And having the boys back? It just feels right. We’ve missed those little stinkers in a fierce way. But we will love them while we can and then take them back home tomorrow and continue to pray for what the future holds…for both of us.
