Mariposas

I think butterflies are the fad for baby girls right now. They're on everything. Blankets, crib sheets, onesies. G has been known to call Z his little mariposa. (She is half Mexican, in case you forgot!)

Well, today the little pink and purple butterflies have taken up temporary residence in my gut.

We have a visit with Z's mom this afternoon. I am going in to meet her, because she wants to go to Z's doctor appointment tomorrow, and the social worker cannot be there. So I have to decide if I can handle having her there with no supervision.

I was actually getting used to dropping off Z at the back door of the county agency and picking her up an hour later. Figures there is a new wrinkle. Heaven forbid I should get comfy.

Yesterday someone said to me, "More people should do what you're doing." (Fostering, they meant.) I replied, "Now that I'm doing it, I know why more people don't."

This is hard and scary. I'd love to have your prayers on my behalf today.

Hugs and Prayers Ana. I hope that it all goes well. I cannot imagine how hard this all is on you. We're still considering the possibility for the future, although it is seeming more unlikely all the time... we're just not sure we're upto it.

Hugs to you and Z!
