I have to admit that I was nervous right before the home study mostly due to not going through one before. Like going through an interrogation of my parenting and intent for this new life we are going to love and hold close to us. The guys did very well with their answers and have I mentioned how proud of them I am?! Next week is the second of three interviews and this time our physical home will be on display. We have a small house so it won’t be a very long meeting. Bring it on!
Devin is spending much more time with this group of guy friends this year. I remember being in high school and wanting my own THING separate from my parents. No one ever told me it would feel like this though. Although not as painful as my divorce and maybe compared to my mourning of my mother’s disease of dementia it is like a grieving but somehow I need to embrace it. God is my strong tower and will help me this I know. Through ALL things I will learn to praise Him who has never left me. I knew that 2012 is going to be a good one…no…a GREAT year!
