I am Alive!

I am back to the world of blogging!

I have no excuse other than to say that being unemployed has thrown me for a loop. I have started so many projects and finished none! I think that I am finally starting to get back in the groove!

Now for an update on Alyssa. We had a rough holiday. Alyssa is really struggling with her feelings for her birth family. We decided to let her send a letter to her Aunt. Alyssa wrote a letter telling her that she missed them and she included some pictures. Well, they never responded, so then Alyssa was really hurt that they didn't care. My heart ached for her as I sat here and suffered the fallout of that letter.

We have spent the majority of our therapy time trying to help Alyssa deal with her feelings. I am happy to say that she seems to be back on the right track. She is smiling again and has the twinkle back in her eyes! I was very concerned that she was going to get stuck in the past and not be able to move forward. But my little girl is strong, and she is going to be OK!

I'm sorry that I haven't been around. I have thought of you all daily and remembered you in my prayers. I promise that I will get back to my regular blogging. I still have a couple of projects to finish and the majority of my time is spent job hunting, but I promise to post on a regular basis!

Wow! It brought tears to my eyes to see a comment from you today. I have missed you so much!!!!!!!!!

I am so sorry Alyssa had to go through that. That just sucks. I know what you mean about the groove. I'm still trying to figure one out since I'm a SAHM now. I have no idea how I accomplished what I did when I was working because it seems nothing gets done now. I thought I would be able to get tons more done being at home. Not.

Big hugs {{{{{Geri}}}}}}!!!!!!

Welcome back, Gerri! I'm glad to hear you're holding on. You've been in my thoughts.

I'm sorry to hear you had to let Alyssa get hurt. It's good that she was able to learn and grow from that, though. She's made tremendous progress!
