Thank You! Thank You!

We so appreciate all your prayers and well wishes! The counseling session went okay. Stuff like that is never easy. We've been going since a couple of weeks after Chai Tea ran away in January. She did agree to go again with us next week. It's hard because I just want everything to be fixed. At the same time, we will do whatever it takes to maintain an open door with her. I don't know how long it is going to take before our relationships are fully restored. Maybe that is a good thing. If I'd known in January that it would be 3 months before we could even get her to see a counselor with us... I might have died. One day at a time... sometimes... one breath at a time.

Good that the counselling is helping.... we had one who ran away a few times, but when she came back it was with a baby... and we ended up taking the baby! and the next one a year later..... WHO WOULD HAVE KIDS??? If you knew what you were in for when you popped out that adorable infant you would be trying to put it back in! LOL, you just have to try and laugh some days. It makes life interesting if nothing else. With 8 kids now we have a VERY interesting life. Blessed we are (tongue in cheek you understand!)

I don't know your story but I can certainly sympathize and will pray for you. We have had our share and other's share of heartache and worry and rebellion here. Like you I just want it fixed. I understand.

Holding you in my prayers.

Jay and I are trying to keep an open door with Tar Baby, but sometimes it's VERY difficult.

The fact that she is willing to go back again is a good sign.

Going with you to counseling is the first step. It looks like a good beginning!

Stay positive and remember that there is a reason for everything - now, what that is . . . who knows!

God Bless!
