until we get to see "our" kids. I know I shouldn't be looking at them in that way yet (afterall, we know way too well how this could go from our experience with G last Fall) but I can't help it. I received a 16 pg fax from the kids' current foster parents about their behaviors/likes/dislikes/etc and now I am even more excited to meet them. We are meeting for breakfast on Tuesday am at 9! Wow, I'm excited, scared, nervous, anxious, you name it, I'm feeling it right now.
Hubby hasn't said too much. I showed him the pics and he's like "Yeah, they are adorable". He's leaving all the details up to me. I know he's scared that we'll get them and have them for the next 2 months and they will be part of our family and then something will go wrong and we will lose them again like we lost G. I know he's got a point and I should be a little cautious, but it's hard. I guess I survived and worked thru our losses with G and if that happens, I know that someone higher up has plans for us and things will work out EVENTUALLY!
I'm thinking about getting some sort of gift for each of them when we go meet them on Tuesday. When their sw asked them about their favorite things - neither of them really mentioned any toys or anything? So now what do I do? Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated.
So now work has slowed down a little bit for today and I've been sitting here thinking about them. (I started this post over 3 hrs ago and am just getting time to get back to finishing it). What if they don't like us? What if they hate us? I mean - we're young, we LOVE to have fun and be with family/friends but what if they absolutely do not like us? then what? Ok, I can't let myself keep thinking this way but the thoughts are crossing my mind. I know they like cats and dogs and animals...well with our cows/chickens/dog/5 grown cats/9 baby kitties and more baby kitties on the way - I hope that is enough to at least win them over for a little while! :-)
Work is piling up again so I better go.....send me those ideas to get the kids!!!!
