Referral turned down

We got "the call" but not really. Lina was reviewing our homestudy and saw that we have a biological child with a heart defect and thought we might consider a child with a medical problem. It was a hard decision, but with three other children it is decision that effects the lives of more than you and your spouse. If we did not have any other children, we may have considered it, she is very cute and the condition is manageable. We live a very active lifestyle and someone with her medical needs would probably not be able to go camping, etc.

We are finished with the homestudy update, Lina suggested we change the age from 0-3 to 0-4. With that change we have to wait a little longer to get DCFS approval again, since it was just approved this week for 0-3. Only in IL do you have to get DCFS approval. Then we will apply to CIS again, more prints etc.

  1. I am so sorry. That is such a hard decision to have to make. I pray the perfect child for your family comes very soon. I also pray that the update process is completed quickly.
