Three months old

You turn three months-old today.

At your checkup last week, the doctor said you’re nearly perfect. You’re healthy and growing exactly as you should be. In fact, you’re so curious about the world around you, that you’re already starting to hold your head up and to move like a baby twice your age.

We’re still waiting for social services from your home state to contact our state.

It just so happens, you had the misfortune of being born in a state with one of the worst managed social services programs in the entire country.

When the paperwork finally comes to our state, and our locality, mommy and I will have all of our paperwork already done. We expect everything to be completed on our end in about another month. And then the paperwork returns to your home state, where it could drag on again for no one knows how long. And then, we may or may not have to go to court. There are a lot of ‘may or may nots,’ going on in your home state, no one seems to have any sorts of answers about anything, and the social workers are all surprisingly comfortable with not having answers.

And so we continue to wait.

Before she left you last week, mommy took you to get your picture taken wearing the Easter dress we got you.

What a wonderful baby you are . . . you don’t cry or fuss, you just watch what’s going on around you . . . until it’s time to eat or change a diaper. And even then, you just get squirmy and fussy, you hardly ever cry.

Yawning easter
Your mommy and I received the paperwork from our state while you were getting your picture taken – it won’t be difficult for us to do our part. But no formal request has come from your state yet.

The woman taking care of you called her state representative today, trying to get your social worker to make progress.

Sunday, mommy and I joined a new church, and told all the people there all about you, and asked them to pray for you and for the family taking care of you, and for your social worker and all the social services staff.

There are a lot of good people praying for you, all around the world. And they look forward to meeting you.
