Not too much new going on here.

S is at her mom's house. Her mom tried to bail on her this weekend claiming she had no money for gas. When I dropped her off with mom and gma s's mom seemed very stressed. She claims it is about $ and needing to get a release signed to her counselor...

K is at his "new family's house. Has been since Wednesday night. I think they are starting to see little things that are making them really mull over this decision and when I mentioned him moving to their home in early May they acted like that was coming way too soon and they needed more time. If I had agreed to adopt a child I would be rushing things to get them home, not trying to stretch them out as long as possible. I do know they are trying to take their time and do what is right for everyone, I just hope the right thing is for them to adopt K because, after spending so much time with them, I think he would be crushed if they just decided not do to it.

Kobe is...Kobe. He is spending the day with his dad while I go to work today. I am so happy my boys get a lazy day. They both need it!

One week from today my sister and I will get on a plane and head to Florida! I am already making a million lists in my head about what I need to prepare for Ben to make things as easy as possible for him while I am gone. I am going to make some meals to throw in the freezer for dinners, I am going to pack Kobe lunches for the 2 days I won't be there for school, and I think I am going to get all the kids' outfits ready for each day I am gone. His life will be easier without 3 kids coming to him for socks that are who knows where every 5 minutes. :)

“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.” (1 Peter 1:18-19)

i hated for her to go too. i was suck between a rock and a hard place because I had to work today and didn't have a sitter for her and of course that would be the weekend her mom tried to bail on her.

the agency gave them "gas money" to come get her. can you believe that?

Where are you working? Were you filming a wedding alone?
That is so sad, really. I am praying for those precious kids knowing God has a perfect plan for them, and that He sees the big picture!
Glad you get to go to Florida in a week! That will be a great time for you and your sister to be able to go together!

Having placed a child for adoption,I could never imagine not wanting to do everything in your power to make sure your child was taken care of, as well as taking every chance possible to spend time with them. I would do anything for Robbie, so I will never be able to understand people like this. S and K are both in my prayers :)

We are praying for your special little kids. I really hope things work out for K. I can't believe that they gave S's mom money to come see here...WoW!!
I bet Kobe had a great afternoon with Ben.=)
I am glad that you get to go to Florida to see your family. I am sure you will have a very special time.

Leah Wentzel said...

just filming a wedding by myself. i have been doing it that way so only one of us have to go. it makes life easier! :)

i will NEVER understand a mom who "supposedly" wants her kid back that could call her EVERY DAY and never does. not one day a week. and then spends money on cigarettes and then doesn't have gas money...that is my rant for now.

i am sure getting away to florida will be nice. it is just odd timing i guess :)

So sad. How does S's mom think she is going to raise a child if she doesn't have money for gas? And it ALWAYS gets me when people say they have "no money" but somehow manage to spend $7 a pack for cigarettes, there is always money for that. It's magic
