Little French Baby

In case you were wondering what is up with LFB, I thought I would give you a quick update.

First of all, she is still here. I think I mentioned she was going to an Aunt and Uncle. We were patiently waiting for them to get their house to pass inspection - all there background checks had come through already.

We all love LFB and she is clearly very attached to us also. But we are trying to keep it in our minds this whole time that she is going to family, blah, blah, blah, and be happy for her.

Fast forward two months, and the Aunt and Uncle have given up their quest. They never seemed super committed to her, but they said they were going to take her and adopt if the mom's rights are terminated - to keep LFB in the family.

I know I really can't divulge personal info on them, but they refused to do something and that is making them seem like they are hiding something. They actually are refusing on principle they say - in other words, pride. Whatever their reason, we are shocked! How could they give up? We love LFB and would love to keep her, but to think they could have here and will not is just hard to comprehend.

So now we wait. Normally, LFB would just stay here. But, bio mom was moved to rehab 90 minutes away. This is not her first rodeo. Normally the court would move LFB closer. Her social worker wants to keep her here since she is already attached to us. What a thought: Let's do what is best for the child. Then there are the visits the mom will get.

Can we drive to Long Beach every week? More than once? Can I keep it a secret from my husband?

to be continued. . .
