Phone Photo Friday


As quickly as little Pumpkin came into our lives, he’s back out again. It’s amazing how much I can fall in love with a little person in just three days. Though I’m sad, I’m also happy because he’s on the fast track to adoption by a lovely couple from his mom’s support network. He’s going to be loved and treasured as the blessing he is. Yesterday at 9:00 we had a meeting where I learned about this alternative placement for him. At court later that afternoon it was decided and I kissed him goodbye in the courthouse parking lot. Bittersweet.

    I’m forever in awe of your ability to care and release. Long time reader, you make me want to be more compassionate.

    His adoptive mama is very pleased to see you write that. My heart is so full of love for pumpkin (his daddy’s too). Thank you so much for giving him a safe and loving place to go until he found his way to his forever home.
