Back up the big hill we go...

We were in contact with our social worker today. Bio-Mom is now out of jail and has scheduled her drug rehabilition program, which also means visits with Jaelyn & Abbie have been scheduled as well. She roughly estimated they will begin on October 13th.

My guesses as to what happens next: Visits will start. We go back to court on October 19th. Bio-Mom's lawyer will request bonding & pysh evaluations for second opinions and mediation will be brought up to see if it can be rescheduled as well. A court date will be set in the near future to see what progress was made, if any.

I hold my breath every time I receive one of these phone calls. I exhale. Tears sometimes stream down my face. I just want what is best for Jaelyn & Abbie. I grasp everyday with them and realize what a true treasure it is. I often wonder how much of an emotional mess I can be without completely losing it. My faith gets shaken but I still hold on.

Please pray for our family & for me.

As Simple As Black & White

My daughters are beautiful, it's plain to see in black & white...

I was playing around with my camera settings tonight. I took a few black & white photos, here are some of my favorites.
