My husband and I got custody of my son almost 8 years ago as foster parents. He was in and out of foster care the first 4 years of his life for severe neglect and abuse. 2 1/2 years of court before the parental rights were terminated and the adoption was final. We have had some issues as many of you know, but I love him with all of my heart. I just received an email today from DFYS that David's sister is now in foster care. My son has lit a candle for her for over 7 years every Sunday in church. I have not told him yet and will not say anything until I get more information. But I have emailed and called and I am praying that I can get her too. I would have taken her as well to keep them together all of those years ago, but she was sent back to live with the bio father. I am heart sick at what she probably went through all these years. But I will do whatever I can to help her at this point. So for her to come here and for us to be able to adopt her, at least she would know people who would love her. She would be with her brother. She would never have to be worried about being taken away again. I know I will probably have to deal with some serious issues. I will pray for God's help on that but I just so need to do this. So anyway, praying for the call that we can take custody of her. So everyone out there, please say a prayer for her and for my son and for my family that regardless, everything works out for the best.
