Hey eveyone! I just started a facebook group for this darling friend of mine who attends a school for the deaf and blind that doesn't have a playground. The cost to build a playground to accomodate the needs for these kids with special needs is outgragous and they have recived no support from local politicians to do so. Please check out this group and this blog - thank you so much!

Almost there!

Hey erveryone! As most of you know Kenny and I are in the process of moving just down the street, literally, from our old place and here are some pictures that I took of it before we started moving in. We are almost there (about 60% done) and when we are finished in the next week or so I will take pictures again, but I hope that you all like it and I can not wait to show you guys the finished product! Lots a love!

Bye Bye Baby!


Hey everyone! An update on everything, our little guy went back to his mom on Sat. and as of right now, Kenny and I have decided not to pursue foster care anymore. After this last placement left, we decided that it was just to painful to accept anymore placements. We are still going to keep our licence incase something comes up, or it doesn't work out with our last placement and his mom. I am going to conentrate on school and Kenny is going to concentrate on finding work. We are still pursing adoption though, so if anyone hears of anything PLEASE let us know! Thanks for all your support!

It's Another Boy!

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know that Kenny and I got our 2nd placement over the weekend. It is again an amazing little 3 week old boy. It has been hard since we had to let our first placement goe, but he is just so cool! We don't have much information about his case right now, he was just placed in custody on Friday, but we are just so thrilled. Thanks for all your support!

6 years!

I can't believe that today is Kenny and I's 6 year Anniversary! Where does the time go?

Saturday, September 12, 2009

To our wonderful family and friends - We thank each and every one of you for the amazing and overwhelming support and wonderful messages. Each of them meant the world! Thank you! Our first night with our little guy was an amazing experience, one neither of us will forget. Unfortunately, that may have been all the time we get to spend with him. I was sick with the flu for most of last week and figured I was most of the way over it by the time we got him on Thursday, though I still only about 80% better. Yesterday Kenny came home from work and said he started feeling the symptoms.I immediately called DCFS and let them know the situation for not to risk this wonderful little guy's health, since he is only 2 weeks old and has been through enough in that time already. They came and put him in a res pit care home for the weekend, saying that we were still the foster parents and we can have him back on Monday when, and if, we are feeling better and nothing happens with his case by then. We are crossing our fingers and saying prayers, especially since today is Kenny's birthday and he wanted nothing more for it to spend with his new little man...poor baby. Anyway, thank you so much again for all your support! A lot of you asked me about some of the details on his case and believe me, you can't imagine how hard it is for me not to post pictures and tell all of you all about him, but unfortunately, until we have a permanent situation, I can't. I love you all and wish you all the best on this day. We will be doing everything we can to be planting our bums in bed and praying to get our little boy back for the remainder of the time we get the privilege of having him in our lives!
