My Updated Life... :)

Friday, March 01, 2013

Thought I would give my Sparkfriends an update since I haven't been online in a while.

My stepdaughter's four children were removed from her home and we have taken the two older girls, Haley and Lilly, ages 8 and 5. The little boys have been placed in a foster home. John and I couldn't handle all four children.

It has been an absolute whirlwind and we've had to move into a larger apartment. At least the girls are well and safe. We've had non-stop appointments...doctors, psychologists, etc. We've been driving both girls to two different schools twice a day and everything has been just crazy but we are making day at a time.

The girls are emotionally disturbed and we have a Mental Health counselor coming to do "In Home Therapy". It's going to be a long road ahead but with God's help, we'll make it.

Sorry I haven't been sparking..but I'm sure in time I'll get back here.

Much love and please keep us in your prayers!

    emoticon At least Haley has been there before - so that isn't such a huge change. I know all about the appointments and such...I can't imagine that kind of life being thrown in my lap! It is difficult, but you are the best people to handle this! I will keep you in my prayers, my friend. I'm glad the girls have you to be there for them. Stick with it the best you can - and don't forget to fill your tank too. You are no good to them if you are running on empty! Take little snippets here and there!! (((((HUGS)))))
