3 years!

Today marks 3 years since we brought Hallie home from to be our foster daughter!    Here's what I remember!

After a 6 month hiatus from doing foster care that enabled us to mend broken hearts from sending our two foster boys back, we decided to do foster care again.  We called our Resource Family Consultant and told her that we were ready to do it again, and said that we only wanted to have one child in our home and less than a year old.  While she was thrilled that we were ready and willing to foster again, our new stipulations resulted in telling us that we might be waiting a while.  Unbeknownst to us, it would be only a short 3 week wait before March 3rd, 2010 we got a call telling us that an adorable little redheaded baby girl nearly 11 months old needed a foster home.  Excited beyond words, and feeling very strongly that we needed to meet this littlel girl, we went and met her that evening.  We brought her home the next day and the rest is history!

We adore this little kid more than words could ever describe, and are blessed beyond measure that she is ours!
