Siblings Three...


Saturday morning was fantastic. Little Buddy was up and raring to go at the crack of dawn and we were out the door by 8:30, headed to their bio brother's house. I told him to not feel badly if SweetPea didn't remember Freckles (their 9 y/o bro) and it could take her time to warm up..

Wrong! 

She pretty much leapt out of her car seat and into his arms!  I don't think her feet touched the ground much after that... 

As us grown ups visited, Freckles carried SP all around and the three were in and out of the house, playing here and there.  They got along famously and it truly brought tears to my eyes. 

Still does.

They'll be bringing him back here later this afternoon.  We are prepared for LB to be pretty emotional when it's time to say, "Goodbye" but knowing we'll get them together again soon should help ease that pain.  Being with brother will undoubtedly trigger memories of Mom and we'll deal with all that as it comes.  It's worth all the bumps in the road because keeping them together is truly important for them all.

What a blessing!

I believe Blogger ate my comments again. Ug!
My 2-year-old foster girl remembered the caseworker that took her to a visit once. Glad it went well.

When I was in foster care, my brothers and I were separated. It is so hard and I admire your tenacity to let those siblings see each other as often as possible. What a sweet picture!
