The time is quickly approaching that Jacob will legally be mine. I know people are thinking "what I thought he was already yours?". In my heart he is and he isn't going anywhere but legally, no he still is a ward of the province. There is technically a 6 month trial period from the time you bring the child home and then after the 6 months is up the legal process begins and then you legally adopt the child. So August is actually the end of our 6 months but the social worker surprised me on the last visit and said if I was okay with it she was going to start the process the end of June-beginning of July instead of waiting. I was absolutely okay with this.
So this brings me to the start of the topic heading. After he is legally mine I can then start the process to adopt again. I would have to go through all of the same paperwork I did before and interviews and such then I would be put on the list to wait for a child again.
So...... I'm doing it. I'm going back on the list as soon as I'm able to. Okay so this is my question though. I don't have a number. Most mothers/women tend to have an idea even a vague one of how many children they want to have. I don't. I don't know if I want to stop at 1,2 ,4, 7, 19??? I have no clue. Is there a magic number? Now some may think; what? another one so soon. Yes, it did take 2 years to find Jacob so yes another one so soon, because really I have no idea how long the soon might be. All I know is that I am already, ready to have another child welcomed into our little family.
Like I did with Jacob I have an idea of what kind of child I am hoping for but I'm leaving it up to God like I did for Jacob and He blessed me with exactly what I hoped and prayed for. So I'm doing the same this time.
