The guillotine is 24 days from dropping

Wow. Where did the last 8 months go.

Wow. We got to have her 6 months more than they told us we would.

Wow. On the 24th we find out what will happen and when.

Wow. In March S will have been in care for 12 months.

Wow. I think I may actually live through her leaving.

Wow. God is carrying us all through.

All I can say is WOW. Ben and I were talking about you and Ben last night (you and your ben - not you and mine!) You got S around the same time we got Ty. When I think about what my heart feels and the bond that connects us and the protective mama I've turned into... I CANNOT IMAGINE doing what you are doing.

We both found ourselves saying, "I could never..." but know that SOMEONE needs to. And how much better those someones are when connected to our Father.

Thank you for being so courageous.

Hi, I "stumbled" across your blog tonight and wanted to take a minute to encourage you! I am also a foster mom and had to say good bye to my sweat little Sophia a few months ago. She lived with us for nine wonderful months and is now back with mom. I miss her terribly and still cry when I see a certain picture or toy that she loved. God really has worked a miracle through all of it though and S's mom is reaching out to us! We talk on the phone about once a week and she lets us see S every few weeks! We don't understand why God took her from us but we know that He is working things out for the best! Hang in there! Cry a lot, pray a lot, love a lot and try to laugh some too. May God bless and comfort you and your family!
