Update on my thoughts
I need to try and explain some things.
No. I’m not adopting the little girl. That was never the intention. I will only foster her IF we should to decide to go that route and at this stage that is a big IF. There is no way I’ll be taking that little girl away from her mom. I’ll just be offering her a home, a warm bed, clothes and a full tummy. I’ll give her stability. More love. And I say more love, since I’ll never keep her mom’s love away from her.
It’s a big IF though. I want this young mother to think about this. Really think about it. Think about the implications for her and her little girl. How this will affect her daughter. Her 5 year old daughter will be moved from what she knows to a family that is completely different. We’ll go through the system and she’ll have to run this by the father … I think.
My ideal outcome for this? It’s for us to find her a daytime job. Where she can drop her daughter off at school in the morning and pick her up at normal hours like all other kids. So that they can go home in the afternoons and spend quality time together. I would like to set up a fund for them, so that the little girl will not go to bed hungry.
THAT is my ideal outcome. Whatever and however this works out, I just don’t want that little go to bed hungry or not know where she is going to go to sleep at any given night.
