We got the text today. The Baby will transition to his new home in less than 30 days and T will follow him a few short weeks after that. I believe in this move. I believe in keeping siblings together. I agree with everyone involved that this move is positive. My head tells me how “good” this is, but my heart breaks a little thinking about it. I have been his foster mama since he was two days old. I have been there for everything and have spent 24/7 with him and near him. He and I are incredibly bonded. I’ve given him a good start, a peaceful home, and a healthy beginning. I am so happy to have gotten to love and nurture this precious little one for the past five months. It was a blessing in my life and I am SO glad we got that call so many months ago.
T and The Baby will leave to go and live with Sad Eyes at the end of May. This is actually a VERY good thing and something I am very supportive of and happy about. Often times in foster care siblings get separated and never reunified. That is a tragedy. But, that will not happen in this case. The boys will live together in the foster home where Sad Eyes lives now and will stay there until reunification or adoption. Sad Eyes is doing so much better in his therapeutic home and his foster mother has agreed to take all of the brothers, so that they can live together. This is a success in foster care. I will miss the boys, especially The Baby. We have had him since birth and he and I are so bonded, but this is still a good thing. It will be hard, but in the end extremely good for all of the boys!
