Pulled Our Application...

We applied for our first baby last week and told our social worker that we were interested in this particular little girl. Our social worker then contacted the county of the lil girl and was getting info for us. After hearing more about lil girls issues, we decided that she is probably more than we can handle...ever. She will most likely need lifelong medical assistance. She has a family history of mental health issues and has a sibling with a rare genetic disorder, she was also drug exposed. All very sad and I would more than happily accept her if I thought I was the best person for the job, but sadly I just don't think I am. I asked our social worker if lil girl will have a hard time finding a home and she said that there will still be hundreds of applicants for her and many more qualified for this sort of disability...I'm not discouraged, but hopeful. I feel bad for Lil Girl, that her mommy gave her such a rough start and from the sounds of it, she won't be the last the mommy does this to. DH and I applied for two other babies this weekend, one in Florida and one in California. Both seem reasonably healthy and both are just over a year old. We don't expect to be called on them. But it's always worth a try.
