This Thursday the child that we picked up from the hospital months ago will have his connection to his parents severed. In the foster care to adoption process, this will take us one step closer to finalization. In his life, this will take him one step further away from his biological family.
On the one hand, I’m excited that we are moving closer to adoption. On the other hand, I feel sad that this wonderful little person was born into a situation that did not allow him to know/live with his biological family.
