Wish I Had Less to Tell

I'm going to keep this relatively brief but want to vent and update a bit…

We were all ready to head to church this past Sunday. My DH goes out to the van and it's dead. Nothing, not even a click. We tried not to stress about it, pushed it out of the way and loaded into our other vehicle and went to church. We were supposed to take the van on our little camping trip this week but when we got home from church and tried to jump the van, it was DEAD. Long story short, we unpacked the van and packed our other vehicle and took that camping.
Thankfully, we have free towing with our car insurance and were able to get it to our mechanic while we were camping and found out it was just a bad battery and connectors. Got it all repaired while we were gone and came home and picked it up. Relatively painless.

While camping, we had "bigger fish to fry" though. We had decided to move forward with the placement of the boys as of Sunday night. We got some new info Monday and everything came to a screeching halt. It's over. I've cried, prayed, tried to understand and then just decided to just trust. God WILL work things together for our good. I'm still working through it so I can follow my hubby's lead. I know it will take time. They were almost mine, so it's tough to just let go.

DH has got stress enough with his other responsibilities right now. I think he's able to compartmentalize it better since he has so much else going on. I'm thankful he is trying to be the best leader of this family he can be and I can rest in that also.

Thanks for all the continued prayers and support!

    So sorry that things feel through with the placement. Be reminded, that while it is terribly difficult right now... God has a plan & I am SURE that something & someone wonderful will come along and be just perfect for your family. I will continue to hold you & your family in my prayers. Glad that the van was a minor issue. How was the camping adventure? You husband sounds like a marvelous man. Bright blessings to you all.
