Paths cross

So, we met a couple in our Foster -parent training workshop a while back and they were placed with this sweet little guy we will call "S". The Foster mom and I send emails back and forth and late last night I was checking email and one appeared from her. In my mind, I had told her about the girls being reunified; however, I can't remember for sure. She asked how everything was going and I gave her the skinny - except, I didn't mention Ruby - which I normally do and have been doing quite a bit lately.

Ruby has really been on my mind, lately. Not so much questioning myself of saying did we do the right thing but just wondering if she had been placed with another family and away from the evil foster mom.

We are chatting back and forth on email and she mentions that they have been placed with a little girl - guess what her name is. It's RUBY, she gave her age and brief history - it was her! Seriously, how weird is this. It's not really all that strange but I thought it to be quite cool that the one couple we keep in touch with from our agency that actually is with a different agency location ( we are in Riverside and they are in Orange County/Anaheim Hills) are Ruby's new Mommy and Daddy.

I have to say, since I met Ruby I have been sending good positive vibes out there for her and have pretty much begged the big guy upstairs to please just please give this little girl who has had such turmoil and strife in her few young years of life, a loving home with some awesome parents. I' am so excited for Ruby, this is beyond cool.

YEAH - what a good way to start the day/week.

oh kara ... What wonderful yet heartbreaking news at the same time. Happy for the little gall and the other couple you've kept in contact with, and yet ...

Sending big hugs your way. Somehow I think you and I are going through similar emotions right now. Just know that I'm thinking of you and sending positive vibes your way.

What a fantastic way to start your Monday, Kara. I'm glad you no longer have to worry about Ruby and how she's doing-you know she's in a good spot. May the rest of your week be as good as today has been!

I love it when the universe works out like that. How great for little Ruby (and yes, she has the most AWESOME of names!).

How wonderful that the universe conspired to do that.
