I confess not podcasting since late October has been somewhat intentional. It’s been a rough couple of weeks since our last episode, due to a combination of factors. As a result, Mary and I have been making a very focused effort on taking care of the kids and each other. We rejoice in how much progress Leeland has made since joining our family but he remains very challenging, and the other boys each add their own mixture of highlights and difficulties on a daily basis.
A perfect example would be the other day, when in a moment of great frustration, Ezra (2 years old) yelled at Mary, “When I grow and and become a mommy or a daddy, I’M going to keep an eye on YOU!”
For anyone who questions if God has a sense of humor, consider that exhibit A.
Overall, we are hanging in there, and I was able to turn Veteran’s Day into a 4 day weekend which I think helped everyone in the family. We’re still excited about doing to podcast and sharing our foster parenting journey with you, so we apologize that it has recently been put on the back-burner. We’ve started talking about our next episode, so hopefully that will materialize soon, but in the mean time, we appreciate your patience!
