Unfitness Hearing

Well, today was court date #1 for Olivia's TPR. I found a sitter, not an easy feat itself, and was able to go. The cw doing the kids' subsidies thought they MAY go ahead and do both hearings today if I was there, but we later found out they can't do both the same day anymore. Oh well, I was still able to go, it was a very quick hearing, and parents were found "unfit." Due to our vacation to visit the grandparents in FL July 11-31, the next date for best interest will take place August 15 at 10am. Seeing as Olivia's bday is Aug 16, what a gift that will be!

Braeden's subsidy paperwork is almost done, my homestudy is done, and we're very close on his adoption. Looking like August??? Let's hope! :)

Grandpa came to visit on Friday and the five of us went away for the weekend to our family reunion. We went to my uncle's and the kids were able to ride Commanche, an Appaloosa horse which they LOVE!!! They also got to ride the four-wheeler and feed some very cute kittens! Swimming in the pool at the hotel was also much enjoyed. Unfortunately I have been sick with a horrible cold that has made it's way into my chest, sinus', head, etc . I feel lousy!!! Didn't enjoy the hotel and swimming as much as I could've.

Grandma and Grandpa left today and the kids are sad. They miss them bunches! BUT, only two more weeks and we will be on a plane on our way there.

Still trying to find the software for my camera in order to download some new pics!

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
