Hi, I've been following your blog for a while. I found you from Innsane Womb. I haven't gotten it together yet to start my own blog (maybe someday). I have two kiddos (4yearoldgirl, 8monthboy). I'm excited for you to get your placement call. I have a twin sister and we were adopted at the age of 7years. My mom had two boys and had always wanted a girl to add to the family. and she got her call and it was twin girls! we were also fostered to adopt. We have an amazing loving family that we grew up in and I'm so thankful for loving parents and people who work to hard to give children a good life away from all the brokeness out there. My sister and I are a "success story" in this system and I kept meaning to look up our case worker and pay her a visit. Can't wait to see who God brings you! Parenting is the best thing that has happened to me! Children are amazing.

And my guess is...
