DH asked his HR dept (which consists of one whole person) at the beginning of August to take FMLA the two afternoons a week that I have to go into work. Apparently there has literally been no one in his entire office that has ever asked to take FMLA. DH started the process in the beginning of August and was finally told today that his employer will not allow him to take incremental leave. Keep in mind federal law requires his employer to respond to his request within five days and its been more than a month. We are now left with the option of putting the kids in daycare or DH taking the full 12 weeks if leave without pay. Good golly, it’s not supposed to be this hard.
Y’all we got the call for the twins early last week. This is not a foster care case, this is a foster to adopt case. The workers are coming out to present the files to us this week. They will give us as much information as they have and then we will have time to consider if we feel like we are a good fit for them.
I’m excited and nervous and have no idea if this will work our for us or not. Our house is not big. Somewhere between 1500-1700 sq ft. We have four kids and two of them don’t sleep through the night. DH and I both work full-time (although that may change if we take placement).
H went in for a well child check up today. He weighs close to 23 lbs, and is more than 28” long. E weighs about 24 lbs, and I’m not sure of her height. Currently, H is wearing a size 5 diaper, and E a size 4. H is in nearly the 100th percentile for height and weight.
