Gettin' On With Gettin' On...

So, here we are.. a month and half after the worst day ever and we're all hanging in there.  LB is at his absolute worst after therapy (I'm likening it more to ripping open scabs every week and am questioning the frequency of the visits.. we'll see).  But all in all, thanks to the support of our amazing family and friends, we're doing really well.

Both of my kids are growing like weeds.  At the rate LittleBuddy is going, he will definitely hit 6'3" as predicted (my bets are more like 8' the way he eats but I'll defer to the professionals).  I swear SweetPea says new things every day.  Did I mention she counted to 13 all by her little lonesome the other day?  I declared my 2 1/2 year old a rocket scientist (as Jack and Jill at 4 1/2 couldn't count past 3 when they came to us).  Okay, maybe an unfair comparison.. probably a future Nobel Peace Prize winner..

Grin.

We've had a minor glitch case wise.  One of the family members that had their rights terminated is appealing the decision.  Did I mention this person is incarcerated .. errr.. busy until 2016?  No one is surprised and it shouldn't set us back too much but for crying out loud.. Really?

Really.

I'm working more hours (did a FULL day on Monday!) and can say without the slightest hesitation a normal, run of the mill, ordinary day is like the greatest breath of fresh air.

Uneventful days ROCK!

So incredibly proud of you for putting one foot in front of the other day after day for those precious kids. You are a rockstar!

Here's hoping you have many, many more uneventful days in your future.

The fact that you can even write a coherent sentence, let alone continue with normal life, after what you've been through shows how incredibly strong you are. I'm praying for continued healing and for things to run smoothly for your family.

And for the record, we took a gamble and ceased therapy for our older son (adopt at age 2, lots of behavioral things I can't fit into this tiny space). We saw three different therapists/counselors in three different offices with three different diagnoses, and the last was really pushing for some pretty heavy therapy that didn't seem to be making anything better. We left over a year ago and so far no regrets. Granted, different situation, different ages, etc. But yeah some of us do think that therapy can hurt more than help, and sometimes they really do just need some time to heal so that they can process it all openly a bit later on when they're a little more settled.

Praying for more everydays.

Endless appeals is my biggest fear in life. Praying that doesn't happen in our case, and that in your case it is resolved SPEEDILY.
