PHOTO REMOVED AS PER NEW CORRECTIVE ACTIONS BEING TAKEN BY TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF FAMILY SERVICES.
Well, believe it or not PandaJOY is IN OUR HOME!!!!!!!! She came Tuesday as a legal risk placement meaning that the rights of the biological parents still need to be relinquished or terminated. March should bring us more info and details about that. For now we are completely, unashamedly, wonderfully, ecstatically, happily and joyfully squeezing the daylights out of PandaJOY! I cannot show her pics until all is said and done and that is in the fall. Terrible!!! How can a photographer and avid blogger NOT put up pics of her daughter?!!! I am trying to give as many teases as possible without over doing it. This photo is pretty safe.
The dog and PG are doing well. More than well. They both amaze me with how great they each are with PJ. PandaPop and I are in hog heaven. I won't lie.....there is sooooo much for me to do mentally to get back into the mindset of daily life with a 2 1/2 year old. I didn't forget what it was like with PG, but the all-consuming time it takes to raise a child this age can get to you if you're not on your knees praying for help. We are just getting started and have a learning curve with the transition that is inevitable with a child who has known one way of life and then is thrust into another. I fully expect to have melt-downs from her, PG & myself and have PJ wonder what happened to ...insert foster family names....
PJ is such a perfect fit for us!!!
Thank you a MILLION times over for your prayers, love and support. I still don't even know some of you who have chosen to take a moment from your day to remember us. For those of you who comment and I don't have a way of contacting you....please know this thank you is for you, too! I have prayed blessings BACK on all those who have prayed for us throughout this exhausting adoption journey. We aren't through yet, so if you feel led, we'd LOVE your continued prayers.
