The Unthinkable Has Happened...

Wanna know what we have been up to? I traded in my SUV for a mini van. MINI VAN PEOPLE! In the last 4 years I have gone from a mustang GT...to a SUV..and now a minivan. Nobody thought I would do it, even as I was walking out the door to go pick it up they just chuckled and said "there's no way she would drive a minivan, she'll be back" Well, I came back.. with a minivan. I guess it's official now, I'm a mom. Now, if I could just find one of those soccer ball magnets that's standard on the back of ALL minivans, I will be set!

All the girls are doing wonderful. The twins came home last week from the hospital. They are improving more and more every day. Most of you don't know, but they were severely abused by their family and we wasn't sure if they were going to survive. They did! They said the multiple skull fractures, rib fractures and the broken leg bones will heal...it's the brain damage we are worried about. The smallest twin had 2 brain surgeries in less that 21 days, but with the VP shunt, she is doing wonderful!

We have been extra busy with the family, and my dad will be coming down next weekend to meet all the girls, mom has been staying here with us helping getting us settled in. I can't tell you how many times I have woken my mom from a deep sleep to tell her the baby is crying and she hates me. Can a woman go through postpartum depression without actually HAVING the baby? Ha! I'm sure it's just pure exhaustion. I'll catch up on my sleep when they turn 18.

I have pictures that I can post, just can't right now, don't have time. Talk to ya soon!

Not going to even talk about the minivan thing. . . I am so sorry to hear about the twins, thank God they have found you and hubby who will love and take care of them. I will keep them in my prayers! I will keep all of you there, esp you! No wait, 4girls, I will be keeping Mr. TSB in them the most! How is he doing? My mom came down for my due date (baby was born early) and it helped so much, glad your mommy is there to help you! And honey, they don't hate you! As for sleep, start this routine now, and I mean it! Every Saturday, or whatever day works best for you, either have MR. take ALL the girls for a couple of hours, or let you go do your thing for a couple of hours, every week. If you don't do this now you will get sooooo little you time and you can start to get frustrated, no matter how much you love them babies, and it's harder to stick to the routine the longer you put it off. Act like it is a Dr. Appt or something YOU HAVE TO KEEP. Just 2 hrs that's it, sleep, clean, get your nails done, go grocery shopping, it doesn't matter what you do as long as you are alone for 2hrs every week. TRUST ME! GL and keep us posted

I'm a SAHM to 3 girls. We became foster parents in May 2006 in hopes of adoption. We love our girls and could never picture ourselves without them. Although life is much busier, we couldn't be any happier. Here's our story...
