Our foster son is here!!

Yipee! He is almost 14 months old and he walks...So far he has given me some tips on babyproofing and crashed in the crib. I wonder what kind of day he's had...the case worker called while I was at a zoo (30 mins away) and said he was in her office. Today was a little bit of a situation and when could we take him? I read up on him and there are no major issues, he just needs a lot of love, stability and attention =) I think we can handle that! Moses is not exactly sleeping, I can hear him banging around up there but go figure. He seems happy to have a 'brother' and has already been caught rubbing his hair and kissing him. He shared his toys extremely well (even the tools!!) but not his lunch. He didn't really want the kid stealing the crusts from his sandwich - who can blame him? Those crusts must go in the trash can, like they do every day - if they're not good enough for Mo, they're not good enough for anybody! Well, I shouldn't be spending time doing this...although it requires less energy than other things right now...I will be writing more later, as I can, of course! I have a feeling a bunch of posts are going to have the same label for a while...

That's exciting, I'm so happy for you guys! Looks like you were worried for nothing. He sounds like a good little guy. Any idea how long he'll be with you?

How exciting! We did this years ago ourselves. It can be very challenging, even with such a little person, but very worthwhile.

How awesome is that! I can't wait to meet him tomorrow - and I'm looking forward to spending time with all of you, in general. :D
