Life changes so quickly.
On Dec 23 we were given the gift of a 2 and 5 year old.
In January we lost our 5 year old. I have not seen him since February. I have not stopped thinking about him or praying for him since December.
Then today the cps lady came and took our 2 year old. He will be 3 on Monday.
Even with all the trials he put us through, I loved that sweet little red head. He put me through some stuff I could have never imagined and taught me more than any college professor.
We knew it was coming, but that didn't make it any easier.
We took today to do "nothing." Since it is Friday, there are no college classes (scheduled), we put off getting college id's, dad even stayed home from work. We just hung out together as a family and talked about our sweet boy. What else do you do when a year of your life is ripped away?
God did provide a much needed distraction for us today. In the form of a four-legged foster. There was this small scared dog running around our neighborhood the last 3 week . We haven't been able to catch her, but today we did. We are all animal lovers, so this pretty pooch is a welcome, although temporary, addition.
Good news: sweet baby Moses is doing great. Our adoption prep (yeah!) Case worker seems to think we will have everything finalized by September. I can't wait. I am looking forward to having a month or two without caseworkers and therapists and lawyers and paperwork.
