Walk with me.....

Walk in my shoes
for one single day.
Then you'll see why
I ask you to pray.
Come live in my home
for a week or two
and then remember
I am just like you.
I did ask for the things I was given
I did choose this road I have taken
Just Walk a mile with me hand in hand
Then perhaps you will understand.

I'm not really complaining
about the stress in my life,
I know that we all have
some toil and some strife.
But walk with me, when you think
I am wrong, walk with me
and you'll start to belong.
Embrace my sorrows, and Strengths
like they are your own,
And then you will know me
And see I have grown.

The journey I take
is different from yours
My life took one of those
unexpected detours,
But this road that I travel
is not really so long,
If the people who watch me
will join in my song.
Listen to my footsteps
and watch how I dance
And then you will know me
and give me a chance.

Take heart and remember
It can happen to you,
who knows where my pathway
will cross over to you?
So speak to me softly
if you can't understand
Remember I once stood
right there where you stand.
And walk with me gently
when the day is at end.
And then I will know
I can call you my friend.

Practice Babies?!?......

I found this very interesting!

Beginning in the early 1900s, collegiate home economics programs across the nation included "practice house" programs designed to help female students learn "mothercraft," the scientific art of childrearing. At Cornell each semester, eight women students lived with a resident advisor in the "practice apartment," where they took turns performing a full range of homemaking activities in a scientific and cost-efficient manner.
In 1919, the first practice baby, named Dicky Domecon for "domestic economy," came to Cornell. Cornell secured infants through area orphanages and child welfare associations. Babies were nurtured by the students according to strict schedules and guidelines, and after a year, they were available for adoption. Prospective adoptive parents in this era desired Domecon babies because they had been raised according to the most up-to-date scientific principles.

Flora Rose, an early proponent of the program, believed that babies were essential to replicate the full domestic experience. Albert Mann, Dean of the College of Agriculture, called the apartments "essential laboratory practice for women students." As time passed, however, new research in child development pointed to the need for a primary bond with a single caregiver, and social changes in the lives of women made the practice house focus on domesticity seem old-fashioned. In addition, by the late 1960s, the ideology most prominent in the college favored hard science over practical applications. By 1969, the year the college changed its name, practice apartments were dropped from the Cornell curriculum.



The Sun Will Come Out Tomorow

I know it has only been a few days but, come on all ready! As a mom of 6, three days seem like forever! And i'm sure Richard and the kids are sick of me. I'm not very good at being sick. I tend to go till I drop and when you want to drop by 8 am thats not good. ....
But... the sun'll come out tomorow! No, Really , the sun will come out and it is going to be like 83 degrees!!!!!!!!! So even if I can't do anything but lay on a blanket in the sun and watch my babies play ( they really are about the cutest things in the Whole world!) That is what I will do. .......

........On second thought Longwood Gardens is calling my name! :-)

Just one of those days....

...... I realized it was going to be one of those days when I was listening to thee Baby cry so I started to bounce her on my lap... The crying got louder and more pissed off... continued to bounce.... Only to look down and realize the baby I was bouncing was not the one crying...that one was on the floor staring up at my , with a look as if to say " What a dumb Ass, she's asleep and I'm down here"

E has not let me forget it all day, either!

Cold, Rainy mornings ...

...they suck ! I think I have the flu or something...Prob. just fibermialgia( or how ever you spell it) everything is irritating me, and everything hurts! I just want to be in my own little world and not have Z yelling at me again and again and again. For the love of every thing sacred and Holy, child! Your life is NOT that hard, your only 18m old for pete"s sake! Why can't I read a magazine? =/ I still love you even if I haven't looked, hugged, or talked to you in the past 30 seconds! I'm not going anywhere, even though sometimes you make me wish I was--I say that with love =) Please, stop shouting. Please, stop crying. Please be nice to your sisters... they put up with alot! Please, stop pushing my buttons...they are officially broken and will arrive through FedEx in 2 patient.

If you weren't so darn cute and adorable, you'd be at the doorstep of a convent! (again said with love and tenderness!)

Ian tailored this week's questions specifically for Monkey Minute.

The rules are simple. Copy his questions. Answer them. Link back to Ian’s blog.

  1. How old do you act?- I always see my self at 18, for some odd reason.
  2. As far back as you can remember - what did you want to be when you grew up? - I wanted to be a midwife and still do some day. Bust most of all I have the job I always wanted... MOM.
  3. If you were to write a book based on your life, what would the title be? -Three Sundays from the Moon ! That is me!!!!!
  4. What's something that you do that's considered "childish" by most? I like to play in the dirt and take naps.
  5. The last question isn't a question. Write a story of a time of when you or someone you know overcame great adversity. Right now with F. and posssable Brain surgery!! EEEEEEKKKKKK. I'm a little freeked out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Once asked to write a full story in six words, legend has it that novelist Ernest Hemingway responded: “For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

We all know that pictures tell a thousand words.

We’re hoping you can tell us what your picture says in six.

Ok so it has been awhile!!!!

Trinity & Z, Levi & E, Selah & F
at Longwood Gardens

Our family has blossomed again!! We now have 3 foster/ Adopt Babies. Z, E &F. E joined our family on April 16. After quite a battle. But we never gave up! God told me that this little girl was my Daughter and I would have crawled over broken glass and hot coals for her! Now adding another baby under 2 has not been the easiest thing we have ever done, but this is where God wants our family to be so we have welcomed it with open arms! Z is now 18m and having a bit of a time adjusting to, yet another little one. His temper has reared it's ugly head and i am learning not to react as he screams at me. ( my ears are ringing though) E is fine as long as she can see me. Richard tells me that when I am out of sight she is Ok. But the min. she hears my voice or see's me she wants nothing to do with him. E & F ( See God has a sense of humor. Those are the first initials of there names.) They are like twins in almost every way but there Birthdays, they are 5m apart. Things with F are a bit crazy right now. When she was 3m or so she started bobbeling her head. At first the dr. said "no worries , just weak neck mucsels." But over the next few months everyone else seemed worried so to apise the masses , back to the Dr. I went........ Well after the third Dr. entered the room with a medical dictionary I knew we were in for some news!! " Well we think she has Bobble head Doll Syndrome" to which I Laughed out loud. But that is really what it is called and it has to do with her Head not draining right causing preasure on the brain:( So on Friday we saw the Nerologist and he came to the same conclusion as the ped., We will no for sure after the MRI on the 25th. God is in Control!!!!! Prayer Always welcome! Now I need to go work on my audobiography, for the adoption.

P.s. please pray for TPR on Z & F s Bio-dads on June 3rd, so we can proceed with the adoptions!
E is TPRed and DHS has moved her to the Adoption Dep.!!!!!!!!!!!
