journaling my life as a single adoptive/foster mommy so I can share our life and remember these things when I am old.

I know I am a bit late in posting, but as usual in my life, I have too much to do. I am 6 months away from finishing my degree (after 27 years!) and homework is heavy. I am such a procrastinator that I spend most late nights and weekends just playing catch up. Halloween was fun for the kids. We went to a party on Friday night before and on the 31st, we made a quick trip around the block and were done. I am not very excited about Halloween. It is just too much effort for me and I hate having all that candy in the house. The kids are whinier and so am I. Good thing it only comes once a year, right?!
I am still at home, waiting for my home daycare license to arrive so I can open for business. I plan on running my daycare for the next two years while homeschooling Amanda, finishing my degree and being home after school and holidays with Ben and Caitlyn. I am still a foster parent, but have not had a placement in so long and now Catholic Charities may be getting out of the foster care business. (long story involving the my dumb state) I want to keep a few spaces open because I would like to be a foster parent for a few more years.
that sums it up for this month. I am looking forward to the upcoming holidays and making memories with my kids and being so lucky in this season to be home with them.
I'm a very busy mommy of three beautiful adopted children. My big girl, my little man and princess monkeybutt are my world. Adoption has become my passion and I do whatever I can to be an advocate for foster children and adopted children. I love my family and we are loving God, loving each other and making life up as we go along!
