No news today. Both my licensing worker, who does the placements, and the caseworker called today. They still want the children pulled from the home, but DCFS is dragging their feet and not wanting too. J and I are perplexed. We just can't figure it out.
Upon speaking with the caseworker I found out a little more on the oldest. He will be 9 in August (Olivia's bday month too!) and is going into 4th grade. That would be great because he would be in my school building (3rd-5th) which would be nice to be able to keep an eye on how he's doing socially and would help with knowing his teacher and working with him academically. Plus, we have a great program that began two years ago that would be so helpful to him. It's called Rainbows and is comprised of small groups of kids with a staff member who has been trained to follow the Rainbows curriculum. It's for kids who have had some major trauma (loss of parent, foster child, etc.). I think it would be great for him.
The caseworker said he seemed like a really nice boy, the same impression J got the one time she met him. The youngest is almost 7 months old, putting him at a January bday most likely. Funny, because that's Liam's birth month, and Braeden's is February. So, the oldest boy is two years older than Olivia, who is 2 1/2 years older than Braeden, who is two years older than Liam, who is two years older than the youngest. A pretty good range. :)
I continue to pray for these boys and God's plan in their lives.
