sorry about the lame post on monday. i love what we do. sometimes. and sometimes i feel overwhelmed at the enormity of the word "foster care." i just want the best thing for all kids. and that's not always possible. and that possibility sucks.
court went as expected yesterday and we are due back in December. by then baby j will be 1.75 years and will have been in foster care for 16 months. too long if you ask me.
i hope you are as blessed as i am by this scripture (posted by a fellow foster mom)
“Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it (the thorn in my flesh) away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
2 Corinthians 12:8-10
man. that's good stuff
