The first permanency hearing for Baby A. is set for May 10. His caseworker is recommending termination of parental rights and if the judge agrees, we can move forward with adoption. We'd still have to wait 90 days after termination to see if any family members step up to claim him, but I'm hopeful we'll be clear to finalize by September. This time around I'm going to do everything I can to keep the process moving. With Mikea we had delay after delay, some of which could have been avoided, and the process took 6 months longer than it should have. But in any event, we are thrilled to be one step closer to making Baby A. a Morrison for life!
The 500 Babies are the children God has graciously blessed us with through the miracle of adoption. We adopted Joseph and Daniel in August 2008 and Mikea in June 2009. We adopted Adrian in December of 2010 and in June of 2011 we made Rebekah a permanent member of our family. (She was born at 28 weeks gestation, weighing only 2 lbs.) Last July we were thrilled to welcome our sixth child to our family: Baby Katherine. We are currently fostering her and hope to adopt later this year. Join me as I chronicle the ups, downs, and in-betweens of life with a houseful of little blessings!
