Life is GOOD
We have been so busy at the Victorian Homestead cleaning summer out of the yard (including the last of the garden). The Autumn Purple trees are turning and it’s just beautiful. The sun is out and, hopefully, the rains have ended for a few days. So, politics is going to take a backseat. Our baby Skyler is thriving and I wanted to share her progress with you, she had a very rough start as most of you know. Her biological parent hasn’t entered rehab yet and still shows up for visitation high. Skyler’s advocate (lawyer) has gone to court and was granted permanent custody to the state for her well being. Hopefully by July 2015 the adoption will go through. Her biological parent has three other children which have been permanently adopted by other families or placed under guardianship by the court. We have three social workers assigned to her case, ours, hers, and the bio parents’. She has a pediatrician who specializes in drug babies and he is just phenomenal.
Everyone takes care of her because she can’t self comfort yet. Thank goodness she has older brothers and a sister.
Sometimes she falls asleep in her chair. She absolutely loves it but, hates her baby swing with a passion. lol
So many wonderful people have gifted her with so much and we are so grateful to all of you who have done that for her.
She’s ready for Halloween, sent to her by a guy on a gaming message board. She now can glo-in-the-dark.
and there are all the ‘pretties in pink’ that we love, sent by another blog friend. Her favorite toy is a monkey given to her by her youngest brother.
