It is over

Things that make no sense this side of Heaven happened this morning.

Minnie will be to my house sometime within the next several hours to pick up the cherubs and take them to Dallas to live.

Of course she hasn't given me a flight time yet....  :)

We've been granted two 1/2 hour monitored phone calls a week with the cherubs to help them transfer. But we weren't even given a chance to have a proper goodbye. They can't say goodbye to their friends. They can't say goodbye to their teachers. They're being placed today.

I am so so so sorry to hear. Spectacularly, incredibly, terribly awful.

You're in my prayers. All of you.

Stacy said...

My heart is breaking for you ad the Cherubs. I am so sorry. I do believe you and your family have done EVERYTHING possible for these kids. God bless you and may his peace find you, your family and the Cherubs.

Stac said...

I have never commented, but have been reading for years. I am devastated for you and shocked-- never expected to read this. Prayers going out to your family.

Liz said...

Devastating. I hope those kids will be OK. I can't even imagine.

CherubMamma said...

Thank you for commenting. I appreciate the support I'm getting from all over.

Please don't forget about me.

But I probably won't be writing for awhile.

The grief is going to be intense. Please pray for TT, Bart, and Herman too. This doesn't make any sense.

Rinette said...

WHAT??? I can't believe it. Crying. Poor poor poor D&D. Poor poor you and rest of your family.
And they don't even give them and you time to say a proper goodbye? How in the world can this be in the best interest of these kids? Thousand times awful. Rinette

Tired Mama said...

Oh my goodness. I am so sorry that this is happening, and in this way.

Wish so much I could hug you through the internet.

Praying and trusting the Lord to provide strength for you, peace for your family and protection over the cherubs.

"My flesh and heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Psalm 73:26

Kylee said...

Broken hearted for you. I have no other words. Adding you to my prayer list and committing to pray for you and the rest of your family.

Hold tight to Him as you cry, grieve, and question.

Rich & Sig said...

I'm so sorry. We had 2 foster kids for almost 2 years and they both left, very much like your situation 7 months ago. It was devastating for us, the kids and most of all for them. I don't cry all day now, just once or twice a day. my kids will need therapy for a long time and I cant imagine how the little ones are doing (one was 4 and the other 8). Just take one hour at a time. Grieve, scream, cry and pray. Be with your family as much as you can and give yourself time to just BE. One step at a time. Sending hugs. Sig.

Thank Him For The Small Things said...

I am so sorry to hear this! This is NOT the outcome that any of us were expecting. My heart breaks for ALL of you.

Praying for you guys.

Kareninaz said...

OMG I agree with the other commenters. I feel so badly for your family. Sending good thoughts. This is not in their best interests...wondering what the judge etc was thinking.

Mitzy said...

OH NO! This is terrible. I'll be praying for you all.

nicole said...

I have no words but many prayers for you and the gang.

orphanmother said...

I cannot imagine your grief and saddness. Take the time you need to heal and I pray for your children. I pray for the little ones who will be confused and just as sad.
"God be with this family as they are torn apart from each other, you have plans for each of them. I pray peace and comfort their aching hearts. In your precious name. AMEN"

Fostercarejourney said...

I also have no words... I pray for the children and I pray for your family.

Annie said...

Foster care doesn't make any sense. It's heartbreaking; I will be praying for you and them, and a miracle of sanity.

POWmom01 said...

Speechless, well actually far from it but I cannot seem to put any words together to make sense. I don't personally know you or your family but I believe you were doing the BEST thing for Dude & Dolly (oh Lord those poor toothbrushes). I so wish I could give you a real shoulder to cry on.

I cannot fathom the workings of the judicial system. I will be praying for you and your family for a long time as you cope with the grief.

abrianna said...

Tears here. I am so so sorry. I knew when I read the post title that it was not good news.

Confused too as I thought the judge was on your side.

Anna said...

I feel physically sick reading this post. :(

fosterfull said...

I am so sorry... Just completely shocked to see this. I haven't commented in months, but have been reading and praying. I will continue to pray for your WHOLE family during this time.

Rhonda said...

My heart breaks for your family and the children. I have no words. So I will just say that I am so very sorry for your loss and for the Cherub's loss.

WHAT?!?? It's just unfathomable to me. I really don't understand how this could ever, ever have happened.

Rest and heal.

When you're ready, we'd all to to hear more.

Praying for you and all of your family.

Just...stunned.

(sorry. posted from my school account.)
