The Storm Before The Calm...

I've got to be honest, life in our humble abode is tumultuous at best. Our little blonde haired blue eyed pixie is on a massive emotional roller coaster (the likes we've never seen before). JuneBug has been running Nantie absolutely ragged every single day. Not only do we have a 2 1/2 year old (they're wild enough as it is) but add trauma to the mix and DNA that undoubtedly has not just anger but all-out fury issues and it's a recipe for some disastrous days. Then there's the whole immobility thing. Oh.. ya..THAT..

Although we don't talk about it, we're fairly certain she is sensing something is going on (the pending move) and is none too happy about it. On top of all this she has to try to deal with the visits (which are either okay or downright horrible) and how on earth does she even start to process all that stuff??!

I'll tell you: Inconsolable Rage.

Poor Nantie is on the front lines all day long and let me tell ya, it's no walk in the park. She is a saint. She'll be the first to say she isn't but I beg to differ. Please keep our dearest Nantie and JuneBug in your prayers for peace and comfort.

Word on the street is big changes are on the horizon and we may be spinning with her next move in a couple weeks. This is going to be the crazy before she can settle.. another stressful situation to endure before she can finally (FINALLY) be home for good. Poor sweet, innocent baby. She doesn't deserve any of this and it is heart breaking to witness.

Oh my goodness Melissa, I will keep your family in my prayers. We went through something similar with Ava Grace for a awhile, but I think she finally realized that she was here for good, she settled down and is now a VERY happy baby. I pray the same thing for Junebug. your so right, these poor children deserve SO much better than what they were handed. :(

Praying for you all.

Can I just say thank you so much for sharing the hard times? I know its not good to focus on the bad but at times when I just see happy pics etc I think "wow! They have it so together and this little sweetie pie is an angel" And then wonder where I went wrong with our foster girls last summer. So, I appreciate your honesty and openness today.
(I do appreciate you highlighting the good times also- as that teaches us to embrace those moments because thats what gets us thru the many more hard times. :))

Praying for June Bug. Kids are resilient to say the very least but this is hard! So. Very. Hard. Poor little heart!

Sending vibes and prayers of strength and love Nantie's way and yours too!!
