ok my last post sounded really selfish and i didnt mean for it too sound that way! I was happy to be able to take care of my brothers kids-its just really,really difficult when you dont know how you are going to take care of yourself or your own kids-then wham you get hit with taking guardianship of 3 more kids. Its been a long,long 4 days but Im glad the children have stability now. They needed me badly and I am soo thankful the lord saw fit that I am the one to help. Yesterday we went to court to see if my brother would get them back-fortunately no! My brother needs help and fortunately now he is going to get it-at the kids expense! Well he should have thought of the kids more than himself. So as it sits I am the proud parent of 6 children-4 of whom are all under the age of 4!!!!!!! I believe I am going to have to dye my gray hairs sooner than expected lol. Its a challenge to clothe,bathe and feed 6 kids all in reasonable time, I cant even leave my own driveway because my truck only seats 6! So a BIG thank you goes out to all of my friends and family that have helped me with carting kids around, watching the whole herd lol, and just for listening to me when I have a bad moment! This is the most stressed situation I have been in ever-going through a divorce, watching my "husband" pull into the next door neighbors driveway, 6 kids under the same roof, and attempting to have a relationship-all at the same time! So this is whats new in my life-and strangely enough I feel good!
