edited January 2014 in Adoption

I'm coming from TTCAL. My DH and I have been married for 13 years. We have a DD (7) and a DS (3) and we have had 3 missed miscarriages with D&C's, losing 4 babies. We did fert meds and all the like and decided last May we were done trying. We decided to foster with maybe the hopes of adoption some day. We started MAPP in June and we had our first placement in September. Record time, I know. Turns out we became good friends with our MAPP trainer and we were always on her short list. So we have had one placement that was only with us for a week as he went on to therapeutic care. Then we had an infant that was only with us for a few days as he went on with family and now we have a 1 yo who has been with us for almost a month and he may be with us for a long time, maybe forever. 

So that's us! I do have some q's and opinions needed on some things but I didn't want to just barge on here! I'll post my most pressing issue soon :)
