It was a wintry Thursday afternoon when I got the call.
A call for a boy that needed to be placed immediately.
I rushed off the phone to call my husband and confirm we are open to say yes.
I called her back and told her we could take him.
Attempted to work the rest of the evening, brain wouldn’t shut off.
Left work early. Quick trip to the store for essentials for the first night.
Got home, made his bed, tidied the house.
Car pulls into the drive.
I open the door.
