2013 – 5 becomes 8


The new year brought pure happiness. We had our family, we were ready to get into the adoption seminar and life was going pretty smoothly.

Then one fine day in April the boys were in daycare and I was going to brunch with my girlfriend. Ducked to the loo and my phone kept ringing. It was our case manager. A message came. Do you want a baby girl? I redialled and she picked up straight away. I hope you want a girl I said yes. This baby girl ended up being 2 girls 14 months and 13 years. 

Excitement and nerves filled me. Yay girls but oh my gosh a teenager. We are still in our 20s. How will we do with a teenager?? 

A few hours passed and the baby girl arrived. She was so tiny and just the most adorable little monkey ever. The teenager didn’t come. They were unable to find her as she was not at home so they would bring her when she resurfaces. Don’t worry if she runs they said, she’s street smart. 

The next morning we attempted brunch again… we sit down in the coffee shop and my phone rings. We have the teenager and will be at your house in half an hour. She has nothing. She is a average 12 year old size she will need clothes. Being right next to a clothes boutique I grabbed a few items and miss T and I headed home to meet her sister who turned out to be of average size if she was an 8 year old. 

They boys came home and hubby finished work early. Next minute there was a knock and a little blonde twelvie full of attitude was waiting. They came in we did introductions showed herthe room that was now hers and we were a family of 7.

Exactly 1 month after we got our girls we got another call . A bio brothers placement fell through can we have him for a week while they look for another option…. That week is still going 7 years and an adoption day later.

We didn’t know it then but this is how our family would stay forever.
