An Iggy Update

This week Iggy made yet another appearance in court (sort of, he slept in the play room while his guardian ad litem sat in on his behalf), but this time he was there with all 6 siblings.

Side note: For those of you who do not know Iggy's story, he is our foster son, one of seven children whom are all in care with 5 different families. We brought him home from the hospital at 3 days old and have adored him ever since. With respect for his privacy, I will not divulge all the reasons he is in care, but he is a happy and very healthy baby.

So back to court... Iggy has been placed with us for another 6 month term until his case is reviewed again in November (he is back in court this soon, as they wanted to align his case with that of his siblings). There is a possibility that he will be able to transfer to the adoption unit at that time if his biological mother does not get things together. Although Iggy is only just under 5 months old, his family has a lengthy history with our county's Children and Youth and some of his other siblings may be heading toward adoption soon. So now, we wait. And enjoy this sweet baby boy.

I've been wondering how the little guy was doing! He sure is a cutie! Thanks for the update.

He is gorgeous...would you be able to adopt him or does he really have to go when the time comes?
