alicia and adam.

I have not been in too big of a hurry to post this on here because I feel like everyone probably knows whats going on with us through Facebook or word of mouth but...

Alicia and I sat in the courtroom on Wednesday to listen to a very nerve wracking decision.  My stomach was in knots and I felt so sick.  I was praying they would both get to go to their grandmas house.  Alicia told me the night before that she was having second thoughts and that she really wanted to stay with us-but it was not up to her at this point-it was now up to the judge.  She told me we were the only real family she has ever had.  Awww...

Anyway, the judge said they could both go home so that afternoon I took Adam to grandmas trailer and hung out with Quinn, Asa, Adam and Alicia (and a million of their family members) for about 3 hours.  It was hard saying bye to Adam.  He wanted to go with me and I can only image what is going through that little boys head.  

Alicia begged her grandma to let her spend the night at our house for one more night, so she did.  We had a good time together for our last night and the next day after school her grandma came to our house to pick her up.  Good-byes were sad but we are getting through.  Its nice to have more time and Asa is now in his own bedroom.  He has slept in our closet for 11 months!!  And I am glad to have my closet back!!!!  

OK, I have to go.  I need to save Quinns body from her destruction to her face.  She has marker alllllll over her face!!!

simply amazing.

The most AMAZING thing I have ever seen at church....these people are for real...these are their real problems and pasts. What if we all were this authenic??

We have court on Wednesday at 9:30 am for the kids.  We will see if Adam and Alicia get to go to their grandmas to live.  We don't know if Adam will get to go but we are pretty sure Alicia will get to.  Her grandma only lives about 10-15 minutes from our house so hopefully we will still get to do some of our favorite things together occasionally.  
If you think about it, will you pray that Adam gets to go also?  We all think it is best for him and Alicia.  

I'll do an update either Wednesday or Thursday.

spas rock.

Last week I took mom to the Grove Park Inn spa here is Asheville for her birthday.  It was the most AMAZING experience ever!!!  We had an all day pass so we got to lounge in the lounge with free food and drinks and a fire.  We could also use all of the pools, saunas and hot tubs all day.  Oh, and they have music playing under water for when you swim.  It was so so so much fun!  I never thought I could spend a whole day in the water but the day went by too fast!  We were there 9 hours basking in the waterfalls, sitting by the fires in our robes they give you and inhaling eucalyptus and spearmint in the 140 degree inhalation room.  I think that is what heaven will be like!  We got to talk and just enjoy each others company and RELAX!  (Dad and Dru only called about 5 times while we were gone to see when we were coming back!  They really didn't think we could spend that long there.)
