At this time, to continue ue to pursue adoption, we would need to redo our home study. We have inquired on more than 200 sibling groups. We have seen about 40% of those be split up rather than selecting our family. Social workers do not understand big family dynamics and as such cannot comprehend how it works.
We hope to try again for adoption when we have fewer children in the home, as they begin to leave the nest. However, for now, the number of children in the home is increasing! God has seen fit to bless us with baby #10. In another month, we will see how many and gender. Stay tuned!
