I've likened this journey to a roller coaster ride. It's a combination of being scared out of your mind, pure joy .. and a bit of nausea.
This case has been unlike the others. We've been in the dark about nearly everything and that's not a bad thing. Our focus needs to be 100% on the children, especially Little Buddy as he deals with his trauma. Our plates are full and much more drama would surely send me over the edge. I think our workers know that, as well. Things have been quiet lately (no emails or calls between visits) and that is typically an indication something big is brewing.
We've been around the foster block several times and know full well that anything can happen in a blink of an eye. I have learned to be guarded and not get all wrapped up in the good or bad news. We just ride the roller coaster for all it's worth (and try not to hurl). Bottom Line? When we get big news, it is taken with a grain of salt.
This week we needed a salt shaker.
