Paul was trying to foster adopt with his first wife. She died of cancer before their first placement. At the same time, Miriam had been "mom" and director to a home to over 40 Sudanese for several years until visa issues closed the home.
Together they finished their homestudy in Missouri but never had a placement. They moved to northern California and finished another homestudy and almost had a placement. They moved to a different county and had 2 placements of 2 sibling sets. The first returned to their parents and the second was placed with an aunt. Discouraged by attaching to children, to then have them removed, we closed our foster license to complete a homestudy with Nightlight Christian Adoptions. Now we are again waiting for a placement.
