A little boy

I have a homeschool friend who called me several months ago about a little boy that is in foster care and may be up for adoption this spring. I made a few phone calls about it and it seemed like a dead end, so I have not given it a whole lot of thought. Yesterday my friend called again and said that this little boy had a court date for May 1 for the parental rights to be terminated and he would be available for adoption.

So I called his social worker and she was very nice and said she needed to talk to her supervisor since we lived in another county that this little boy and if he didn't have a problem with that, she didn't see why we couldn't proceed!

I talked to FBCH and told them and they said that they didn't think it would be a problem and they would help us in any way they could.

Basically this is all we know. He is a boy, he is white, he is around 16 months old ,he has been in the same foster home since birth and the foster parents are in their 50's and don't feel like they should adopt him. He has reddish brown curly hair, no health problems and it doesn't look like any parents or relatives are able or desire to keep him.

I am trying to not get to excited and just pray about this, but I wanted to let you all know and to pray with us. If there is any more news, I will let you know.
