We heard yesterday that Whistle's case is moving forward. Apparently there are some new people involved who think this has dragged on too long. Some of us would agree with that! ;-) A late February date has been set for having certain information to the court, and that's the first step - or at least next step - the first legal step toward making Whistle a permanent part of our family. He feels so much like one of us, I hesitate when people ask me how many kids we have. It's 5, legally, then there's Whistle, and then there are often foster kiddos who will not be staying long term. It just depends on how you count. Birth certificates -- or heartstrings.
We are so blessed!
