The visits are going really well. V is always so happy to see us. Again, though, she was upset when it was time to go. We also had a short visit today because we had to do more paper chasing. But, I am so thankful for how well the visits are going. Our relationship to her is the most important thing right now. And that is going beautifully. It is just hard knowing it will be another 2 weeks before court.
Things at home are not going smoothly either. Last time it was much simpler. It is hard being pulled into so many directions. But, it will all be worth it when we are home for good. And I am sure we will all have grown tremendously as people when we get to the other side of this. I keep telling myself that anway!
Dale's ticket is booked and he will be home on Saturday. I will be here until court. Knowing that I have more in front of me than I have behind me is daunting. But, again, eyes on the prize. All my children will be home by mid October. That is not so far away.
Dale and I are trying to enjoy his last few days together here. The stress of the kids at home was getting to us and we were not able to relax and enjoy at all. But we are making a concerted effort today and tomorrow. Who knows when we will be alone again. Probably another 12 years!
Hope for Sharon and Mayah day 12
I have been lazy about pictures so here are a whole bunch-
