.. As my Daddy used to say..
I wrote the post Driving Miss Daisy soon after we became certified. It's about how my life is like an awesome road trip and God is at the wheel. Just when you think you know where you're going -Kapow!- you're headed in a completely different direction. During the drive it's often difficult to understand why the particular road was chosen but the destination never fails being just that much better than you could of ever imagined. It takes faith and the ability to hand it over.
Gassing up the tank..
2009 was one trip for the record books. As much as we loved the twins and deeply desired for them to stay, that was not His plan. We were a bridge between what was (a really crummy past) to what can and will be (a bright future filled with love and stability). They were meant to be here with us for those 8 months, there's no doubt about it. Even their family acknowledges they needed that time to grow and catch up to their peers. Hearing how awesome they are doing now just confirms The Plan and helps give final closure. Now rested (mentally and physically) we're readying for a new adventure.
I was told by our worker the county is cracking down even harder on reunification and kinship placements. In the not so distant future, adoption will be a minor miracle. Honestly, we agree and think that if viable family or friends can be found (that are able and willing to step up) that's the way it should be. If not, well, that's why we're here.
