Couldn't Say Anything Till Now...

Things have been kind of crazy here the last few days but I was unable to say anything till now. The state called us on Friday & let us know that DH's youngest sister was having her kids taken away. We dont know exactly why for sure but she has issues & I know the kids were not going to school. They wanted to know if we could take atleast one of the three. We agreed we would take the youngest, a 5yr old girl. There was no way we could take all 3, especially with my back right now. The middle kid (6) has physical & mental issues, he is going to stay with the other sister. She can & has been able to handle him in the past, plus her kids are all teens. The older (13) is going to stay with a special foster family that has experience dealing with the type if issues she has. I dont know how long we will have her as the mom can work on getting them back if she makes some life changes, but it is going to be awhile. So please keep these 3 kids in your thoughts & prayers during this time.

How great though that you are taking on the responsibility of even one of them. Not everyone would do that despite family status. I hope the mom can make the proper changes to get her children back and give them a more stable and suitable environment. How very sad though.
