There are some things that still weigh very heavy on my heart. We did NOT get a call from the neuro-muscular specialist with the test results. We have to continue to try and be patient. (Well, try at least. I have left numerous phone messages. I think he might be out of the office the whole week.) We need to finalize Seth's adoption and the only thing holding it back are my laziness and the attorney on the case. He is already ours in our hearts but we do need to make it legal. Then there is the issue of Seth's possible 'mood disorder'. If you read between the lines that means bi-polar. The newest ADHD meds are only slightly effective. For the record, Ritalin worked pretty well but he gagged and threw up on it. Plus it was not covered by insurance so we had to foot the rather large bill. Then we tried Daytrana, a patch. It seemed to work at first but quickly lost effectiveness. Now we are trying Adderal XR and adding Risperdal to the mix soon. This poor child needs a break. A break from the anxiety and anger. He deserves to be happy and free.

And yet, we have so very much to be thankful for. We are so incredibly lucky. So blessed. Tomorrow I am going to post something Ashley wrote. It made me cry big fat happy tears when I read it. Sometimes my children show me how big and wonderful our world is, and I can do nothing but rejoice and be humbled. How in the world did I ever become the mother of such wonderful people?
