Update on my Nephew!!

So many of you know that I have been fighting to get my Nephew in my custody because my twin had disappeared pretty much. Well my sis reappeared and she is pregnant again!! I am so afraid for that baby because she has a history with drugs and when she disappeared I was afraid that it was because of she stopped showing up for her UA's(drug tests). Well we had our first home visit today from CPS to have him placed with us. It went really well and from the way the CPS worker was talking they are more than likely going to be taking her baby when she has it. I told them that we would take that baby as well obviously because I am not gonna leave that baby in foster care when we are right here to take it. She isn't due until June or July so it will be a while after my baby is born but if things keep going the way they are going I will have 2 toddlers and 2 infants by the end of next year. It sounds so overwhelming but I really don't care all I want is to have those babies safe and in a place that they are loved and learning good things. So much is going on right now I am having trouble thinking straight sometimes trying to remember what I am doing that day or that moment! I love my sister so much but I hate that she has no trouble getting pregnant and was able to have a vaginal birth so she isn't limited on how many pregnancies she can have. But me someone who can actually take care of my children and want more kids now but it took us almost a year to get pregnant with this baby plus one miscarriage and I and only allowed 3 pregnancies and I am already on my second! DH and I always talked about adopting and fostering eventually but we weren't planning on doing it for another 5-10 years when we are both out of school and well into our careers.
But as things are looking we will be getting my nephew at the very latest March. This is all we know right now but we will know some more soon!

That is excellent to hear! I always get very emotional/excited when I hear someone stepping up and doing what is best for the children. You and your DH definitely are amazing people in my book. It'll definitely be tough, but your DH seems to be a good support system for you. Congrats and kudos on being there for them!

Major kudos to you and your husband. That is such an amazing and selfless thing you're doing. It's challenging enough for couples to be good parents to their own children, and now you'll be a family of 6 in a few months. You generosity is such an inspiration! Thanks for the update Jackie!
