So, I'm a little ashamed that I haven't posted in so long, but the good news is we have two adorable and wonderful little girls with us!
They are foster daughters and so far the experience could not have been better. They almost immediately (at least in my mind) bonded to us and have fit right into our family from the first evening. Pumpkin and the oldest girl are the same age, so that does not help the arguing/fighting/not wanting to share thing one bit, but yet at the same time, they will play wonderfully together and even called each other their best friend.
The other little girl is just shy of a year and is the sweetest. She is super smiley and is a very content little girl.
We have been so blessed by the prayers of family and friends and also so many generous donations of clothes, toys, shoes and books. (only having had a boy for 3 years, did not give us much of a girl toy collection...haha)
We got a call to do respite for the weekend for 3 siblings. Then the next day we got a call to take the placement of the girls. We just couldn't say no, so that meant that for one night we had SIX kids under our roof (and if you had any idea how big our roof was, that is actually quite a lot of kids for our roof). Having 3 kids has proven to not be too hard. It's just been an adjustment of not spending our time the way we used to, not getting all the one on one time with Pumpkin and I feel for that little man so much because his world was turned upside down. He instantly had to share his home, his toys, his Mommy and Daddy and some even some rules had to change. (due to there being girls in the house and some things we have to being in compliance or agreement with as foster parents). But he has been a champ! I love that boy so much and tell him that every chance I get!
I'll try not to be a stranger, but I make no promises. Although having 3 kids has not been that hard; I still find that extra time is not abounding!
