Just a Quick Update...

At this point in time I wish there was something exciting to post to my blog right now, but alas, there isn't.  It has been just been status quo at home these past few days.  Since our little run in with the three amigos (dad, dani and I) we have been doing a little better, but that is because dad had to leave the next day for Kansas.  He should be on his way home from Colorado later to day so the next few days will tell.  But Dani has been trying to be on her best behavior.  She knows she has a lot on her plate and that there are different expectations for her now. I just hope she realizes that mom and dad are a force that can't be played with because we are the team.  But we will see how long that lasts.  I guess this is where mom needs to do some attitude adjusting and bending and be like a "lone reed in the wind" (one of my favorite movie lines from "You've Go Mail"). 

There are days when I feel I can conquer the world that my daughter lives in and then there are those days when I throw up my hands and say "whatever".  I do hope you readers out there feel the same way at times, that I am not alone in this uphill battle.  I want my daughter to have a fulfilling life, a life away from mom and dad, if that is possible.  When I read Jodee Kulps stories and books that her FASD daughter has written, I believe there is hope for Dani.  It's just getting to the finish line with my arms and hands held high in triumph!  For now, I'll just keep on praying and striving, that's all I can do!

Love and hugs to all!

Remember that our kids mature on their own time line. Victory is rarely claimed by a milestone we notice. Rather it is a zillion little victories, that when we look back, we say "WOW" {{{Hugs}}}
