This is the third in a series of Guest Posts by other Cast Members here at Foster Adoption. I asked Daffy to share her version of events from the time she first learned about our family through the hearing when we finally determined her adoption date.
IT’S A PLANE OLD DAY AT THE GROUP HOME. ONE OF THE STAFF MEMBERS CALLS ALL THE KIDS IN FOR SUPPER AND THEN CALLS FOR EVERY ONE ELSE BY RINGING THE HOUSE BELL. AT DINNER ME AND DONALD GET BROUT INTO A MEETING! ME AND DONALD WERE KIND OF NERVOSE AT FIRST BUT THEN I SAW A SMILE ON OUR CASE WORKERS FACE SO I WAS FELT BETTER I DONT KNOW ABOUT DONALD? THENE THE CASE WORKER BRINGS IN A $1,000,000 AND THEN A NOTHER $1,000,000 I’M JOKING. SO ANYWAYS THE CASE WORKER PULLS OUT A PEAS OF PAPER AND ASKS US A FEW QUESTIONS LIKE….HOW ARE YOU? HOWS SCHOOL? WHAT DID YOU LEARN AT SCOOL?……THEN SHE PULLED OUT ANOTHER PEAS OF PAPER AND SAID VERY PROUDLY “DAFFY AND DONALD YOU HAVE A NEW FAMILY” DONALD AND I WERE SO HAPPY WE JUMPED OUT OF OUR SKIN AND SHOUTED FOR JOY!!!!!!
