We finally got our call. The judge ruled for a parental termination.

I am both delighted and feeling bad.

I am thrilled that we are one step closer to Little Miss joining us forever, but I'm sad at seeing a family come apart.

My foster parent training was to reunify families. My heart was in putting families back together.

It still is.

I just see now a little more clearly that sometimes families look a little different and how they get put together sometimes takes a winding rocky path.

We are still along way off from a settled adoption, but we've taken another step down the road of our journey with Little Miss.

Well, I'm glad for you that little miss is with you. Yes, it's good to try and keep families together, but with all you have told me, they really don't want to be inconvenienced by this sweet little one. So you get her. Hug her tight. :)
