OK, I've made enough excuses and I finally decided that its time to fess up. You can thank Ashley for the "outing" thread she posted asking me what I've been doing with my Gypsy. I know you ladies are wondering why I have this wonderful new toy and haven't done or posted anything with it.
So, here's the confession: (NO WORD ON FACEBOOK PLEASE)
I'M A MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you even stand it? I AM A MOTHER. Hats off to the bestest Thanksgiving we will ever celebrate b/c we have something to be so Thankful for!
Isaiah is home for good. Like I mean never letting him leave, no college, no girlfriends or dates, no marriage, forever good! Things have been in the works for about a month now and it has been the most difficult journey of our lives by far. But Praise the Lord that even when we wanted to give up on God, he was not willing to give up on us! DH and I felt in our hearts we had to ride this situation out and go through all the ups and downs if not for any other reason than to not give up on Isaiah. And am I ever so glad we did.
We have temporary custody at this point. A court hearing will be after Thanksgiving to petition his adoption. I've been "hiding" him out from my coworkers b/c I want the petition filed before I announce it at work and to my students. So, please don't post on FB b/c several of the girls on my grade team might see it. I just want the official petition in my hand. Its 100% formality at this point but after all we've been through, I just want to handle it that way.
So, if anyone needs to borrow my Gypsy or my new scrap room, please let know! I've yet to really use either of them.
How's that for knocking your socks off? Praise God!
