Well, it seems like grandma is going to keep all three of the kids.
Of course, she hasn't said anything to us either way about it, but Foster Care Woman said she can speak with authority and say that AJ ain't coming home to us.
I'm really disappointed, heartbroken, and heartsick about losing him again. And, truth be told, I'm also really relieved since taking on an emotionally/physically/possibly-mentally damaged 4-year old really wasn't on my list of things to do right now. Of course, if he'd come home, we'd take him into our arms and do our very best for him because that's what parents do; nonetheless, we also know how much work that would take.
At least one thing is good: living the life of open adoption (BabyGirl and her daddy are at her first-mommy's family reunion this afternoon) has given us plenty of opportunity to hold two conflicting emotions at the same time!
