I was really excited to have a chance
to see the sibling pair from the last time,
and see how they were doing in their new placement.

to say no,

Now we'd have all three kids
at the same time!!
The toddler was

that would describe it.
Very, very, very hard.
The other two,

When the toddler left,
and we were down to the two,

They live on the next block over,
just a quick walk around the block!
I freely admit that that the experince
with this toddler
has shaken me.
It's really made me rethink
how hard this will be!
