Change In Plans

I got a call late Friday from social services, and it looks like there has been a change in plans for Corey's move. Dawn has had some major issues lately, and her foster family is burnt out. I sympathize greatly with them, as we've been there. Anyway, social services decided to move up the kids move-in date. So now it looks like Corey will be moving next weekend. That is almost a whole month sooner than was planned. I'm not going to lie. I do not easily turn off my "Mommy Switch". It has been hard to swallow, but I think it will be better for everyone in the long run. Dragging it out over the next month would have been even more difficult. I have many conflicting emotions, but most of all I'm thankful for the many lessons that God has taught me over the past year. Like I said before, I'm ashamed to admit that I took my husband and my children for granted. I've learned just how precious they are to me, and how much I am blessed. Please pray for us during this transition. I am most worried about John David's reaction. Love you all, and thank you to God ALMIGHTY for lessons learned!
