"Specail time, God's Will, 1 little boy"



It's Saturday, and just a wee pit cloudy out, and theres a crispness in the air, just the kind of weather I enjoy lighting all my candles to, and making some flavored coffee to drink all day, so I can stay busy going to the bathroom =) don't ask me why I put that part in, just did..after all "I am just Annette" tomorrow is a very special day for Larry's adopted brother, he's the child who's been in foster care and lived with Larry's parents for about a year, then the county wanted to take him away from Larry's parents and put this poor child in a group home, even though he reminded me of a flower trying to bloom before but just couldn't, then he got fed, put into sunlight and just blossomed, that didn't matter to the social worker, after all she was doing her job, and Larry's Mom said "Like hell your putting him a group home, what do we have to do to adopt this child?" so they adopted him, and Larry's parents are doing a dedication in their church they attend, it's not a baptism, but where they give this child back to God...it's a neat thing! This little guy has changed their lives so much, even though they are way much older this time around on being parents, he keeps them busy, which keeps them young, it's kind of funny sometimes in all truth all the time cause they use to make remarks about my son being so strong willed at such a young age and blah blah, they never did accept the fact that my Johnanthon has ADHD "It's just an excuse, easy way out for explaining his behavior, just bust his butt, break his spirit" well karma has soooooo come back to them, and to Larry's sister and her husband, they have a foster son as well, and guess what? both of these boy's have, you guessed it...ADHD!!!!, but mine is different...I've been here from the very beginning, not half way through, or 1/3 of away but all the way!! O' boy don't get me started on being a mom with ADHD child, I wont shut up! I just love all children, especially the special needs one's, one day, I promise when my children are more mature and maybe one of them are out of the house, I so bad want to be a foster mom to a downs syndrome child, then if it's God's will, I will adopt that child, but only if God's will. I hope you all have a great Saturday! Love to all.........
