Goodbye BABY!

BELOW is a picture of "the TRIBE" I had at home in September 2006 when I got THE CALL
16 year old
7 year old
5 year old
2 almost 1 year old
1 almost 2 years old
We were also in the middle of transforming our 1000 square foot home from THISTO THIS-doing ALL the interior work ourselves.
SO I WAS IN NO WAY PREPARED FOR THIS
(yes this is really his birth mama)
But God had other plans and on January 19, 2007 our baby boy joined our already swollen family.
A FULL SIBLING TO MY MY
His gestation and even the day of his birth were filled with methamphetamines, cigarettes, alcohol and marijuana. BUT GOD AGAIN PREVAILED! Protecting our BOY in the womb!
MY MY is so proud of her baby brother-they TRULY have a special bond.
I didn't think I could handle another child with The Captains schedule and all that we had going on-but GOD KNEW!
He is LOVED!BIG SISTER...A BOND THAT CANNOT BE BROKENGOODBYE BABY!HELLO LITTLE BOY!HAPPY 2nd Birthday SON!WE TIP OUR HATS TO YOU TODAY!
You are a true and precious GIFT to our family!

Hello,

My name is Michelle and I would love to know more about drug exposed babies. We are looking to adopt and get presented with situations from time to time. most recently a Mom who has done cocaine, marijuana, and smoked ciggarettes through out her pregnancy. It would be $19,000 to finalize so I don't think we could do it financially, all though I would love to. Anything you could share with me about the effects of the drugs on the unborn children I would greatly appreciate.

my blog is www.journeytomercy.blogspot.com

blessings!
