Mark - "Did you see the e-mail on the church
Me - "No" "Why?"
Mark - "Nevermind"...."Well, just check it out later when you get a chance!"
In true fashion, I forget that he told me and our night continues.
The following day, I get a phone call from Mark. Goes something like this....
Mark - "Did you see the message on the YG yet?"
Me - "No, I forgot all about it!" "I'll read it now"
(It reads something to the affect that there is a grandmother locally who is looking for a family to help with her 2.5 year old grandson. Long term.)
Mark - "I deleted the message off of my phone yesterday after reading it only to come in to work today and it pop up on my e-mail first thing this morning!" "What do we do?" "Why will it not go away?"
Me - "Ummmmm......I don't know....call the number and see what's going on and if we can help?"
Well, he called, and we met little Jonathan tonight! He is a precious 2.5 year old rambunctious little boy who was removed from his biological parents' home due to neglect. Grandma is unable to care for him b/c she already has his 4 year old bio sister ans is a single mom. In a nutshell, she is looking for a family who is willing to care for Jonathan long term and adopt him as his case progresses!!
I am really stunned & speechless! We were not actively looking for a child to adopt! Is this real? Does this really happen? What now?
