Yes………countdown time. I met with Blessing’s social worker today and the plan is close to changing from reunification. Blessing will be moving with her sibling at another foster home in about 1.5 months! I am genuinely happy for her and her sibling. I have never been on board with separating siblings but I understand the reality of it all. I’ve been a first time foster mama for going on 7 months now. My stinky fairy has grown taller, got a little fuller, mostly uses the potty, she smiles often, laughs loudly, claps and dances arounds, loves to look in the mirror, loves to read her Llama Llama Red Pajama…I literally could go on. I will miss her little self and the bond that we formed in our family of two. I have accomplished many things in life…seeing her change has been the most rewarding.
SIDENOTE: I believe it was in January that I placed Tigger (my cat) in a no kill animal shelter. He was nice to Blessing but literally would urinate (mark) on her toys, jacket, spot on the couch that she normally sits….if you get my drift. Clothes have been trashed and I’m hanging on to my (brand new) leather couch to get the stench out. I suppose, I should change the name of my blog now? I do miss him but it is nice to be able to live in my house and not around my animal.
