Finally has to happen

I need to be able to blog somewhat anonymously. I think that will be best for my family right now so I will be shutting down this blog as soon as I feel like I have informed everyone that needs to be informed. Sooooo...if you would like to know what my new blog address is (faithful readers!) Please leave your email address in my comments or email it to me.

Luckily, I am not doing this because I have had a problem, but sometimes you have to do things before you do.

I wasn't planning this at all - this is my last post on this blog.

Re- Licensed.

Today "they" came and re-licensed us as a foster home.

Lizzy screamed/whined/was terrible the whole time the lady was here.

She is something else that kid.

Are these clouds ever going to break?

My life is so good.

I literally have nothing to complain about.

But foster care is like a black fog that is covering all of the good up.

I am waiting for the light of God's POWER to come bursting through all this darkness.

Lizzy's visits are horrible.

And now they are talking like her visits with her dad are going to be 2 hours now.

And like mom might start having 2 visits a weeks, 2 hours each.

Three times up at the agency a week.

My schedule truly will not allow for that if I want to be sane at all.

I am sick at the thought of having to have her moved.

I just don't know what to do.

It just isn't fair to our family.

If next month they move to that it will be the end.

I have a feeling

that you all
might get a little tired
off all the football pictures
that will be posted this month
this kid
is lovin' him some football
can you tell?
at all?
that he think this is fun?
Now if I could just get him to keep his tongue in his mouth while he is running so I don't end up in the ER waiting to have his tongue sewn back on 'cuz he bit it off on accident.
Now that, that will make this mama happy.

Friday Night

Last Friday I went with a group of ladies to this:
To be honest, I had never heard of Cheryl Salem before or her family, but I fell in love with their hearts for other people. You can check them out here

I also fell in love with these ---

It was a great night, check out their ministry & books, you won't regret it!

Out of Words

It finally happened.
I feel like I am all talked out.

I feel like I should be lamenting the fact that S's court date is coming so quickly, but, could it be? I am I finally at peace?

Have I a given up?

Have I finally realized that GOD is truly in control?

To be honest, I don't know what it is.

My hope is that I am learning what trusting HIM really means.

We kinda have a lot going on over here.

That's pretty normal though.

2 weeks until S's hear at which they are supposedly "prepared to put services in place so that she can be returned home." we'll see.

I turned in a report to the court concerning what has gone on in her case, all revolving around her uncle that "they didn't want to hear about anymore".

According to Gma, the Uncle just checked himself into rehab for the next year so I don't know if that will wipe out any issue that is brought up or not.

I was thrilled to hear that he did that, and I hope it is true. It may just be the answer to prayer we have been hoping for if they return her to that house.
