We know 2020 is a bad year. After all, you have the coronavirus, then murder hornets, then a messed up U.S. election and the recent Nashville suicide bomber attack. There hasn’t been a lot of 2020 that’s been good (at least from my perspective).
Despite all that, is there anything you are thankful for in this year?
I’ll start. I am thankful for the ability to give my son’s best friend a forever home. Yet not official because of the lack of money to make it be that way, we welcomed this teenage boy into our home and call him our own. When his mother removed him from our care last month, we were worried we’d never see him again. Last week, she dropped him at our door at 1 a.m. with no prior notification.
Yes, authorities are involved, and we were told that chances are he’d be ours for good is high. I’d like to make it official, but I need to gather the money to do this. It’s been a rough year with the loss of my school job, covid diagnosis and husband’s ICU and hospital stay for another health ailment.
Still, knowing that the DHS is on my side for this, makes me feel confident that he has his forever home.
What about y’all?!
