Reilly graduated year 12.
So very proud.
My girlfriends & I participated in Relay for Life,
in memory of our beautiful friend Carine.
It poured torrential rain & it was freezing,
but we did it,
we kept the baton going for 24 hours straight.
The boys dressed up as Zombies for Halloween.
Our neighbourhood LOVES Halloween,
big tribes of kids walk the suburb all in dress ups.
We have been having our little respite boy, often.
Courts dad's wife's 50th celebrations with beautiful people.
School fundraising. . . .
Lots of Cricket.
'B' loves cricket.
In the best news in a long time.
It is official,
we are recognised & approved Foster Carers with the DCP.
The process is long.
Reilly aged out whilst we were waiting & needed to go through the process too.
Anyone over 16 has to go through the same screening process.
My boys have been amazing.
For us this means we will be concentrating on B for the time being.
He is with us 3 weekends this month alone,
weekly day visits & he is coming on holidays with us in Jan.
Right now I don't know when or if we'll take on other children.
We are completely devoted to 'B' & really can't think past that at the moment.
It's cheesy. . .
but it is the best thing I have ever done bar have my own kids.
It is tiring, exciting, scary, beautiful & thought provoking.
And I love it.
