Still Alive!

I keep thinking I would post and then I just run out of motivation. Four kids, a full time job and I am just too tired to put a sentence together.... and then there is Facebook. I post a lot to FB. It's quick, it's easy and it doesn't take too much thought. We have been....busy. The best news is the Baby Boy is a keeper! Parental rights were terminated in March, just shy of one year. I have been a foster parent a long time and have never had a case go so quickly. It will be a while before adoption, but he is worth the wait. :0) My busy little kindergartener loves school. She loves homework, she loves her teacher and she is very popular with the other kids. She has two "BFF's" and they are so sweet together My big boy has his share of struggles, but he has improved so much this year. He was in Title 1 reading and improved so much, he was moved out of that program and reads at grade level.He does have some attention problems and behavior that stems from that, but he is taking a small dose of medication and it helps him alot. My biggest struggle has been my 14 year old. She has put me through an emotional wringer. Depression, acting out, drug use, hospitalization... the works. I am doing all I can to help her, but sometimes it never seems like it's enough. We have thought about moving,grandma needs her own space and we definitely need more space. I am not sure if I can make it happen but I am going to keep looking and praying. I am still a foster parent, although I told them they can only call me for 1 more kid, lol. I dont' have any more room in my van. I don't know if I would really take another kiddo, but if I felt that is what the Lord was leading me to, who am I to stand in his way?
