5 great things

After almost three weeks living together, I have to say it has been a roller-coaster ride. Today I feel wonderful, content, at peace, and definitely where I should be.

This is my top 5 great things that we have accomplished:
1. Spidey stopped sitting at the teacher’s desk, he is now sitting with other kids during the class.
2. Spidey got the bath, brush your teeth, go to bed, read, and go to sleep routine down.
3. Spidey has gotten green cards from school almost everyday.
4. Spidey colored at school using colors, before he will only use black.
5. Spidey is having less trouble finishing his homework.

I have to admire my husbands patience and thank him for being my rock.

We stopped counting!!

I lost my job in December, after some pretty stressful months I was actually glad to be out of that stressful situation.  While taking the time to relax and trying to find another job, my husband got a call from the County Social Worker.  She said you have been matched with a child and this is the general information for him.  Are you interested in doing the telling? What is the telling? During the telling we found out about this boy’s (Spidey) family history, the trauma he has gone through, and his health history among other things.

Well we where pretty overwhelm, it was a lot take in, but we moved forward with meeting Spidey.  We made this decision on a Thursday morning of the first week on my new job and we had to get his room ready and create a photo album of our story. We did everything over the weekend and turn the album back to the social worker Monday morning.  We met Spidey Thursday afternoon, he was pretty shy.  We visited him at his foster Mom’s home for the next month for almost every day and he spent some weekends with us.

He officially move in with us Saturday March 2nd, 2013.  I can’t believe we have waited over 2 years.  Today those 2 years seem like nothing.  Our countdown ended, now we are counting on the days we are spending together and counting down the days to our first trip to Disneyland.
