The truth, of M
This is why I question "who's will is it?" GODs or the social services? I know that for her well being M here with us, but I also know that our friends are her true family that these are the ones she knows as Mama, and Daddy. My husband and I have agreed that M belongs with her true family and that when the time is right she will be returned to them. For now we will do our best to love her, protect her, and give her all she needs.
At this time I am dealing with stress, which is causing unusual reactions with my diabetes. Please keep us in prayer, that GODs will is working

Okay, so I didn't keep up with the goals, or at least not consistently. So I've decided to put my updated weight(335), or at least what my scale says I weigh. I know I've lost and gained these same 5-8 pounds but I am not giving up.
For now I know I am under a lot of stress and I am doing my best to get through this. I know GOD is in control...patience is what I need.

As this new week begins I trust that GOD will provide for my families needs, that whatever decisions are made are to his will.

Well, we did it, we said yes to taking this little girl into our home, our lives. It's gonna take a few days to get things going but we are so excited. I do truly believe that this is a part of GODs plan, especially after today's events.
Today we said goodbye, to our beloved "Kip" our son's best friend. This young man (26) came into our lives when his dear mom and dad adopted him and moved to this small town. We watched as our son's grew up together and when they became young men each going separate ways building their own families and facing adult difficulties Yet, they were still able to come to each others aid when needed and I'm thankful for that wonderful opportunity to be a part of his life.
We have faced this painful tragedy ourselves, when our beloved RILEY journeyed to Heaven. Although we will never understand why, we do accept that GOD had a plan and that these events are a part of it. We just need to keep our faith in GOD and trust him.
Sparkfriends I thank you for your prayers, I know GOD listens, be blessed

Wow! so much can happen in a few days time.
Yesterday we were asked by the social services if we would take in another foster child, this time a much younger child. This two year-old is literally homeless, not wanted by her mother and her extended family. Our home would be here third move since she was born, and the social services is wanting her placed permanently (guardianship).
Our home is ready, and this is what we wanted, to foster children. But this is permanently and I question my ability, am I ready? Can I open my heart to love someone else's child until they are eighteen? I know we have done this already with my step-graughter, but she came when she was 6, but this little girl is just a baby yet. YES! I know we can, I do feel this a part of GODs plan, this little girl is also family to my nephews children (same Mother just different fathers).
This mother is just a baby maker and has never had custody of any of her children, I think she has 8 total, but two were twins with one who died just weeks after birth. I know GOD will deal with her on His terms and I have no right to judge.
So please, if you can pray for us that if this is GOD's will and plan for that things will work out and that I have faith and courage to accept this. Thank you spark friends :)
