OK so here is the run down at our home:
On Nov 14th we went to court to step in as Temporary Shelter Caregivers for our 3 day old niece, due to some health concerns she remained in the NICU until her 1 week birthday when she came home to live with us.
Then 4 days after bringing Little One home from the hospital we got another call from DCF, another sibling of ours was having their children removed from the home and so again we found ourselves faced with stepping in as Temporary Shelter Caregivers.
The day before Thanksgiving I sat again in Family Court, this time going home with a 4 and 9-year-old.
Our home a year ago consisted of 5 of us- today we have leveled out at 9.
We have a lot of love to give and we certainly love our nieces and nephews.
It is so interesting how God has changed hearts and minds around here in the past few years to land us right where we are.
We're learning to love more each day.
Learning to love beyond what's comfortable.
We're embracing life closer to home once again and looking seriously at adding on the addition we've talked about for years.
I am blessed and thankful for this season of life,
I've learned to embrace each turn in the journey with a smile on my face and eyes focused on Christ.
Hoping to sleep through the night one day soon,
