Continued Tuesday, Mar 30 2010 

We started 1.5 hours late and didn’t even get through a quarter of the testimony. We go back in a few days. I am too tired to be upset. I just want this to be over. Thanks for all the good thoughts, they help more than you know!

Today is The Day Tuesday, Mar 30 2010 

Okay, the day has arrived. I am going in there and speaking up for my daughter as best I can. I hope it’s enough. Please let it be enough.

Witness… Monday, Mar 22 2010 

I iz one. UGH.

The call came. We have to testify next week. I am really nervous and kind of want to run far far away.

Our mentor says this is an amazing opportunity and a compliment. She says she is so proud of how well we have represented the girls and that this is a huge compliment. I want to believe her but at this moment it feels like we are in a special kind of hell.

We are meeting with the attorney tomorrow to find out exactly what we need to do and provide them with as much info as we can.  I am so worried that we will go through all of this and still lose our girls. Oddly, in the middle of this fear I keep stopping to wonder what I should wear. Way to prioritize, LOL!

We now have a chance to speak in front of a judge which in very rare around here. I feel like LMC’s whole future rests on our testimony. Oh G-d, what if we fail her? 

If I haven’t used up all my T&P requests, I could use a shitload right about now, along with a side of grace under fire and some calm, cool and collected.

Because If I Don’t Laugh I will Cry Monday, Mar 22 2010 

LMC has come a long way with her speech issues but still struggles with a lot  of sounds. She also tends to leave out key words in sentences or  rearrange them in interesting ways.

An example: We are getting ready to go out to dinner with family. LMC is misbehaving and I tell her if  she cannot behave she cannot come.  She carries on for a bit and then settles down.  S takes PBS to the car and I start to lock the door.  LMC, thinking PBS and S are leaving without her, starts screaming, ” No! Eat me! Eat me! ” at the top of her lungs. I desperately try to correct her, “Yes, you are going to eat dinner” but the eat me continued for what seemed like an eternity.

I can only imagine what our neighbors must think.

We laughed the whole way there.

 This post was 100% inspired by my friend over at Our Growing Family http://2mommies2be.wordpress.com/. Her post had  me smiling and laughing bright and early today 🙂

So Much To Say(Edited) Thursday, Mar 18 2010 

 Forgive the postapalooza about to take place but I figure a lot of little posts is better than a behemoth single post.

I suppose I should have posted in reverse order but I wasn’t thinking. Read from the bottom up if you can. Sorry!

Thanks for reading 🙂
