Long Time Lurker — The Bump

Long Time Lurker

Hello, I have been lurking here for a long time, and figured I should introduce myself. I have a 2.5 yr old foster daughter, she has been living with us for 8 months. The whole experience has been such a rollercoaster of emotions, we are hoping to adopt her and are currently in the middle of court dates and unsure if she will return to bio mom.  All of you ladies have really been an inspiration to me, especially over the past several months!
