So we're sitting in meeting today and Ian kept whispering "I want to hold Tana. Can I hold Tana?" So finally I passed her over to him. Very quietly, so quietly I wouldn't have heard it if there had not been a pause in testimony, he whispers to Tana, "You are the best little sister I could ever have in the whole, wide world." I burst into tears.
I haven't had time to post this recently as we were out of town, but I wanted to let you know, another baby has a home. The agency called me again last week with another "baby born" situation. A half Hispanic, half Caucasian baby girl born to a mother who did coke and drank beer through out the pregnancy. The urine test for the baby was clean however, and the doc said there were no signs of fetal alcohol syndrome, (apparently you can spot that immediately) and while the baby was premature, she was otherwise healthy.
So, I made calls and the people I called made calls and a little baby found a home. God did His work, and I cried again.
With regards to Shel Silverstein....
My skin is kind of sort of brownish
Pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are brownish blueish green,
But I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is brownish blondish brown,
But it's blackish when it's wet.
And all the colors I am inside
Have not been invented yet.
