I guess I have a lot to catch up on.  This past year has been something else.  It is amazing how life evolves...how people can change more than you could ever imagine...some good, some bad, some just down right ugly...some beyond believably extraordinary.  This past year has been challenging...exhausting...wonderfully unpredictable...enlightening..uplifting.  I am still going strong, just doing it on my own--well, not really completely on my own--there is always God, and family, and friends, and support groups and anonymous people and the internet--and child support--but I am always the one putting my babies to bed at night...tucking them in once, then twice and sometimes for another hour or two.  I am thankful for all of those nights...even when I'm so exhausted that I don't think I can take one.more.step.  And then someone comes out to me and crawls on the couch to snuggle up close--and I am so thankful I'm there.  Every.Single.Time they get up.  I became an official statistic in January when my divorce was finalized.  

So, now I am creating my new life with my kids and with their birth families and with my family and my friends--and my new friends--and support groups and anonymous people--and God.  So far, it is going much better than I ever could have expected it too.  Nothing is easy--that's for sure--but I'm willing to give it every single ounce of life that I have-- to give my kids the life they truly deserve.  Yep, in my opinion, that's what true love really is...and I truly love my kids...forever and always.
