We have reached the two month mark since being placed with our two littles. To sum it all up in it's most straightforward form...
Each week brings a new victory along with a new challenge, sometimes we high five just because we survived a day, sometimes I go to bed defeated because I want to be better for these kids, we've celebrated a first birthday and first steps, watching them learn and grow is the best, I am reminded constantly of my need for Jesus, I am still making a lot of rookie mistakes, sometimes I forget the last time I showered, Ethan is my hero, we started to feel kicks and flips from our baby boy and it is magical, introducing the kids to our families and watching them love each other is the sweetest, we are still amazed by the love and support from our community, I'm learning a lot about grace, nap time is nice, we bought a house, we love these kids and we are hopeful even though things are still broken.
Maybe one day soon I'll elaborate more but that's all for now.
The next court date will be in November so please keep that in your prayers!
