I am about to rush off to my next appointment but after 3pm today I am on vacation until the 24th. What a blessing! This vacation will be nothing special but I hope to complete the application for the adoption agency we hope to use and do some of the preliminary homestudy work. I will have some quality time with R as she is also on vacation. We went to her school last night for a parent meeting on the end of her middle school career. I think she is a bit frightened about all that lies ahead – sometimes she acts like it is her alone against the world – we try so hard to lead by example and make her feel safe in leaning on us – that we will take care of her, but for her previous 12 years I think she had to learn to become very self sufficient. That may be a stretch and sound judgmental. I don’t know – but I do know I love her so much.
PS I will probably write more and post a couple of pics later.
