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.
