I had little LJ for five hours today.

HE was REALLY good, it is the dealing with my little two year old and him combined that had me thrown. Joth was SUCH a good boy today, he helped me so much. He was really concerned when we took him back to the shelter home. I assured him that indeed LJ was coming back in the morning. The shelter family wanted me to take him home today, I would have done it except we don't have a bed for him yet. We have a crib, but since we heard he would do better in a bed, we don't have that set up and we are preparing for him to share a room with Joth. I am sure these feelings are normal.

To be honest, I think I am losing it a little. This is a really good place for me to come and let go of some of my frustrations/insecurities/anxiety.

Flavio was gone all day, I think that was a good thing in one aspect, it lets me know I CAN do it...even though it is going to suck bad for about two weeks while we adjust. It wasn't easy without him. In fact he is REALLY late getting home and we still have a mountain of things we need to get done.

I have to just hermit myself, not go anywhere that is not absolutely necessary. If any of you out there want to get a hold of me, e-mail is going to be the best way for the next few weeks as I am trying to limit calls to family, caseworker, and clients. I just don't want anyone to feel offended, it is just one thing I have to let go to keep my sanity.

Well, I am off to Wal-mart for the last of the necessities and then to the furniture store to pick up the beds, then I am sure I will be up until one putting it all together. Tomorrow I'll try to post some photos of all the kids in their Easter best.

Have a happy day everyone, it is one of my favorite holidays!

Kim, you are amazing, opening up your loving home like this to a little child who has not had this kind of luck/blessing in the past. The world is a better place because of you.

First, I want to thank you for putting our names on your "hoping to adopt" section. That is SO thoughtful of you and it means a lot that you would do that for us. Thank you.

Secondly, I've been following your life events over the past week or so and I've been so touched by the way you have expressed your thoughts and emotions. It's inspiring to see how the Lord's hand is watching over your family.

I hope it's o.k. that I add you as one of my links. (I finally started a blog.) :)

I really must be thinking about you a popped up in one of my dreams. You were painting something. I don't even know if you paint. Anyway, let us know if we can help in any possible way. Seriously.

Hey this explains a lot about why I haven't heard from you. I totally understand. We really need to get our license done so we can - at the very least - offer you some respite here and there! You are one brave chica.
