I have reached a time in my life where I take time to enjoy the view. I love sitting on the porch and gazing out to the setting sun and basking in all that the day has brought my way. I started my journey in My vintage trailer, Lolita with a back door to enjoy the view of each day. Now, my journey continues in a Class B Roadtrek. Life and Dreams Change as life dictates, Come along and enjoy..... My Back Porch View.
Painted the outside of my little trailer (I'll do another post to show you the progress of Lolita's new 'clothes'.
my last foster kiddo left (not in a good way). This is not how I imagined saying goodbye to a little guy although troubled, has been a huge part of my life for four years.
This is not how I imagined ending my 38 year career as a foster parent.
My emotions are all over the chart. I am vacillating
between tears of loss and giddy with impending freedom. And oh my, the work the still needs to be done is mind numbing. Lordy, I'm not sure I am ready
for all the changes that full - timing will bring!! But yet they keep on coming. I'm beginning to feel like a proverbial snowball gathering speed as it rolls down the hill.
I am pouring out my heart to you that reader of this blog as a way to document the process I am going through and seek support from those who have walked the path I am on. I made a promise to myself as I started to blog to keep it real. No glossing over the hard parts. No glamorizing the difficulties. You have all been incredibly supportive as I move through this process. I can't tell you how much this has meant to me.
So there you have it.... the good, the bad and the ugly.
