I have received numerous comments on my post to Anonymous. I would love to thank each and every one of you that commented. Your support lifts my spirits. I love all the quirky, sarcastic, and funny remarks you all have left throughout, too. I am never offended by them and most times, they make me giggle when I need it the most. I have said so many times, I hate feeling defensive. I am going to leave it at that.
My son brought home an award this week. It was for Obedience. Anyone else laugh?
Tomorrow we are having a birthday party for Kiera and her birth family. We rented a pavilion across the state, near their home. I am nervous. Both side will be there. The maternal side has not been nice. They feel we stole the baby. The maternal aunt and uncle that had her before us will be there, too. Kiera's mother is worried they will be mean. I have promised to make sure they aren't rude to her or they will be asked to leave. How could I let someone be mean to my child's mother? Won't happen on my watch, I can assure you. I hope things go smoothly but she isn't so sure herself. I am bringing all the kids and both my mother and MIL promise to come. I can't wait for her mother to see her, more than that, to hear her. She talks so much and has changed since they last saw her.
Michael is still sick. He is nice and calm. I am trying to wait as long as he can to take him in. I am sure we will get to that point but he will be heartbroken if he misses her party. I know he can hold himself together there b/c people will be nearby.
