It's a long time without Caleb! I'm so sorry! I even cannot imagine what you feel. Do you able to see him as often as you like?
How was your Thanksgiving? Mine wasn't nice. My back started hurting very much and I had to cancel my party. So it was only my family and no turkey :)
How are you mom and sister? Are they still the same or they act nicer now when you miss Caleb so badly?
Sorry! I was that I answered your note... But, actually, I wasn't. :(
What is your situation with Caleb? Did you change the lawyer? I think, something's going wrong with your case. What is the cause? My guess is your lawer.
How's your work? I bet, you feel extremely tired after it. It's not an easy work.
Yes, I got a chance to read. Mostly I read Russian books. I had a couple of hours almost every day and sometimes even more :))) So, I had a nice rest with a book on my lap :))
I did a lot of different things. I was visited by friends and relatives; I visited friends and relatives; I was able to take a tiny trip to my friend's cottage for a couple of days. I had so many things going on. It was really nice!
What happened with the court? Why is Caleb still in foster care?
Thanks! I haven't visit Shelfari for some time since I've been packing :) I leave in two days and I still need to do a lot! and to find some present.
We went to Buffalo. There is a good navy museum with two real ships and a submarine. It was cool, as my son said. And we wanted to see the Independence Day. So, off we went. It was only for a couple of days.
Is Caleb with you? How do you and he feel?
What about you job? Have you find any? I couldn't imagine how hard this all is to you. I hope, the worst is over :) Wish you be strong!
I plan to have the Internet during my vacation, but I'm not sure about time. So, I don't know when I see you posts, but do post them! I'd like to hear from you! :)
Sorry for the late answer, but the last week was a busy one. :) I finally got my Canadian citizenship and passport and we went to the USA, but before we'd selebrated Canada day. So, by Monday I wasn't feeling myself at all. I was sooo tired!)
How you been doing?
You know, I feel that somethings not right with your situation and I don't like it. Maybe you need to ask a doctor's advice about what the lawyer've been telling you? Maybe your lawer doesn't understand the position? Maybe a doctor can tell you how he/she sees the situation and what is the best way out of it? And why they wanted you on drugs? And why you're not taking them just to ease the process? Oh! I don't understand anything! And I don't like it at all! Could you find some help in community? They know you and maybe could help somehow?
Are you able to see Caleb while he's in foster care?
Please, let me know as soon as you'll know something! And don't cry! I know, it's almost impossible, but as the saying in my country states "The crying doesn't help but harm". Try to present youseslf as a confident woman! )
Good luck! Wish you to be strong!
Good morning! I live, with my two mutts, in a part of New York that is very rural with rolling hills and beautiful, green farmland. I very much enjoy it! I understand that the part of the country where you live is also quite gorgeous. I was in Seattle some years ago, and it was indeed God's country. Thanks for the advice about the groups. I'm hoping to pick up some new reads at Barnes and Noble in the next couple of days, as I just finished the two I was working on. Have a great Fourth of July!
But how come that they think you're not a "fit" parent? Was it the idea of your mom? I understand that you get sick and were taking to hispital. So, it was enough to take Caleb away??? I don't understand... And why your mom wanted to take away Caleb? How he could be possible in her way?
I don't like this situation. It seems to me that right now you should put everything into Caleb's "rescue".
You know, I see how you struggling to take off from your place, but somethings always pull you back. I think, you need to look into reality and just cut everything off.
Right now I'm not working since I've got 10-month old baby. It's my husband who support the family. He's a sowtware developer.
Yes, you told me about Caleb, but I didn't realize that the court is involved. Why the court? Why you cannot take him back if you're ready?
Tell me about your coast adventure. Did it go well? How far does that Florence from your city?
Yes, it was a really busy party, but my friend was helping and my husband was indispensable. The most important, all kids were happy. Now, we can relax till next year :))
I could imagine how's Caleb missing you. Is it the first time he's away from you? And why is the lawer in it?
How was your Sunday? You'd planned to go to service with Tim. Did you sing and play together?
This weekend was a busy one. My older son's turned 10 and we have paries. At Saturday we went to my friend's and spent almost all day at the beach. And on Sunday we had a big 4-hour party for Mike with guests and a lot of outdoor activity. Kids did rock climbing, baseball, laser tag, golf, bumper cars. I'm so tired of this weekend that I cannot even read since I'm loosing my consentration immidiately. But my son is very very happy and this though makes me feel better :))
I think, it's great to have a friend who can help you and whom you can help as well. In this case, you both are helping each other and getting better just because you've helped someone. Does he have someone in his life? Maybe he's possed some experience that would help you...
How's Caleb? Have you seen him lately?
As to your family, just do it. Don't change your mind. And later, when you grow stronger, you could help them. But right now you need only Caleb and youself to take care.
Oh, no :) You think very nicely about me. :) I'm not that nice. I have my flows as any person. And there are a lot, believe me! :) You know, I always though that when we communicate through the Internet we communicate not with a real person but with a replica which we mostly create by ourselves. :)
You are more than welcome to ask me any questions if you want to know me more :)))
I too have donated my books in the past to help build a better library for an organization. I think helping out is always a great way to show that there is still some humanity left in the world. As for myself I don't consider myself an exceptional artist, but I can get by with drawing and other crafts if I have the time to execute them properly. If something doesn't look right to me then I won't use it. Over 100 games? I don't think I've had that many at any point in time, but it's not a bad thing if you have time to get together with people to have fun. Growing up my brother and I had a lot of board games, but our parents did not really play with us so we had to find games that would work for 2+ players. Anyway, I work at the Huntington Public Library, which is on the North Shore of Long Island. However, I worked for the Kanawha County Library in Charleston, WV for about 5 1/2 years and a year as a graduate assistant in the University of Kentucky's Government Documents department of the library. Basically I've only worked 1 job outside of the library and I didn't really enjoy that too much.
Wow! It's mice to hear! Tell me about this friend.
I think, that your most important step is to live "without your family". You have to start living for yourself and take care only of yourself and Caleb. Well, I think, it's not really Christian, but you've done enough for your mom and others. You need to stop thinking about them - their grown ups and can take care about themselves.
Well, I don't know what to say about myself :) Compare to your life-story, mine is pretty much simple :) We've got tickets for July and we'll be back in September. I'm very excited about the trip and already start planning what we are going to do. My two best friends are planning their days off and maybe my great friend would be able to come to visit us at that time (he moved a couple months ago to Seatlle). So, I've got a whole bunch of ideas; hope, there would be enough time for everything.
