Grow Where You Are Planted

I have thought many times about updating this blog, but wasn’t sure how much I wanted to share. This may seem peculiar since I have already shared so much, but the difference is, this is not my story to share.

L&D started Kindergarten this year. We were thrilled that they both got into the  charter school that we entered a lottery for. They have been in school for 6 months now and it has been a very difficult transition.

My heart has never ached so bad watching my little one struggle. I have learned a lot about myself during these few months. 1. I have learned a new level of patience that I didn’t think I was capable of 2. I learned that there is nothing I wouldn’t do to make my children’s lives easier.

If you have wondered where I have been, and why I haven’t updated with new information about our fostercare journey, it’s because the little ones that need us most right now are right here in our arms already.  We hope to be able to continue on the path of fostercare someday, but for now…we grow where we are planted.

  1. A friend is going through this exact issue. Another transition for little ones who have already had to face so much change in their lives – very challenging for them as it brings out all their vulnerabilities. And it is so hard to see them feeling everything so deeply.
    Good luck with this. My suggestions to her were to make sure they have plenty of one on one (or two on one!) after their bath and before bed where they can sit in your lap and feel that deep unspeakable bond you have, cuddle them like they are babies – it lets them go back to that emotional level where they can feel safe, secure and protected in their mum & dad’s arms.
    This time will pass, but while you are in it, you’re right – you need to be there for your little ones. Blogging and everything else can wait.
