    Maybe the state case workers and social workers should see this. We were repeatedly turned down because we had other school aged children. We were quite frustrated because for 6 months we kept getting the same answer back, “This child or children would be best served in a home where they would be the only child/children,” even though their profiles said they would consider all home studies. We were considering giving up when we were finally accepted to adopt a beautiful boy. We are over-the-moon excited. Doing our part to support National Adoption Month!

      Sometimes, caseworkers know that a child really does need to not have siblings. Often this is because of evidence that the child has harmed other children in the past. I think it is best to accept their recommendations because they know the child better than we do. Congrats on your new son!!
