A List Of This And That

- I would love to update you on a great visit with bio mom from last week, but I can't. And I'd love to jot down some details about things that wouldn't surprise you yet still shock you, but let me just say this; she is very upset with the workers about her situation, security was involved, and it was ridiculously ugly. So we are still taking it a day at a time, I am frustrated with her decisions, but the girls are safe & loved, and He is still in control. 

- We got all the kids dressed Sunday morning and went to church, it's only our 2nd time to brave it with our new normal. A wore some tights and she thought they were SO great, she calls them her "crazy socks" :)...


- I am leaving this Friday to fly to Atlanta for a Foster/Adoption retreat called Created For Care. I am super excited to get away for a couple days but also super nervous to leave all my loves. Oh, and I MIGHT be a semi-anxious flyer. So you can pray for my nerves :).

- I come back on Sunday, it's my birthday. I'll be 25. Or 32. Or 30. Or 28. Or something.

(alright, 32.)

- Ella has started "getting ready" in the bathroom when we leave the house. It has begun, Lord help me.

- I went into Target, and big surprise, I came out with things I didn't need. But for real, these owl boxes make me HAPPY, and they are on sale for like $7...


- I posted on Facebook last week that we made these Black Bean Brownies. And seriously, it's almost funny how good they are. I don't know why this recipe makes any sense, but believe me it does.

- I SO appreciate the advice and emails (I'll be writing back soon!) I got on attachment issues. You all are great. For reals.

- Some of the kids are now crying and fighting over what sounds like a bean bag chair...but it could be anything. Gonna check out the madness and then make dinner :).

Till later, friends!

Love you. Love ALL your kiddos. Love your heart. We have a family member who is a bio AND adoptive mom making poor choices. Feeling your pain in a personal way (except we aren't the family taking the brundt of it). You give me great insight on how to pray for everyone. Thank you. Know we are praying.

Wow...those owl baskets!! Yeeks! What a day brightener! Love them!
I'm so sorry about the situation with the girls. I pray for you every time you come to mind! Praying you'll have a safe, uneventful flight and a refreshing and encouraging time away.

I know, the baskets are so cute, aren't they?! I love them...and I might have gone back to pick up a couple more :).

Thoughts for the day said...

So is dad caring for the crew while you are gone? Be aware of 'I will miss you and are you coming back' from the newest ones. Having you gone might trigger 'some feelings'. Just saying, keep the idea up front to whoever is keeping them.
Have a good time away you deserve it.
