A Lot has changed!


We finally have a foster care placement. We are really exited about this new adventure that we are on, man is it a lot of work! I knew that it wouldn’t be easy but man, my body is not adapting to not sleeping well. I am sleeping lightly, waking up in the middle of the night, and waking up super early for me.I am finding out that I need a certain amount of sleep and I am not getting that right now. Smile My body is protesting because I am not getting it. I have been battling the start of a sore throat and possible sinus infection. Guess I am going to have to start being more diligent on taking my vitamins.

The kiddos that have been placed with us are what you would call “Irish” twins. They were born less than a year apart. Little man was born in January and the princess was born in December of the same year. Little man has been having some night terrors and bed wetting issues. We have been getting up quite frequently to change the bed sheets, which equals LOTS of laundry. The princess has been having temper tantrums because she wants to take a bath or when she doesn’t get her way. She also is “high” maintenance because of her hair. The kiddos are of mixed race and she was blessed with spiral curly hair. Trying to find hair care products for her was a challenge, but I think we may have found something that will work. Hallelujah!!!

They have adjusted well so far and really enjoy playing with hubby. I play with them to but not the way he does. He is able to be more active with them, where I am not. I have a back/neck issue that is preventing me being super active with them. We are not sure what the long term plan is with these little ones, but whatever is the plan, we are happy they are here and are looking forward to making a difference in their life no matter how long or short.
