There comes a time…

There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who do not. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.

      1. It’s not as busy as it used to be, all the kids live on their own. There’s Heather who lives in a group home since that’s the fast track to independent living in an apartment with help. She has PTSD and what they used to call Aspergers. She’s very smart but limited in social skills. She tries so hard on social skills. though. We have Cassie, who is 21 now. She has the same birthday, two years older. She has two kids, one is in foster care, and the other will be soon. Sad, but she just couldn’t take care of them. She lives on her own with her boyfriend. They live in his mother’s house. Karla is helping them find an apartment right now. She has more “normal” autism and has a very low IQ. She could really use a group home, but she refuses, she wants to live in a regular apartment. Then we have Vera, whose 20 now, no real problems. She has 2 kids also and now she lives in Florida, a two-day drive from here. She just married her fiance in September. The weird thing is that we just hired 2 new people at work, and they were there at the wedding. It’s just so unlikely. Then we have Kaylia who’s completely blind, and so is her fiance. They live about 30 minutes away. Then Samanatha (she spells it that way.) She’s 24 and has one daughter, we see both of them more often than the others. She has been Dx. with bipolar, and PTSD. She won’t seek help for these, she disagrees with her DX. She drives for Uber and also has her own business called Fetch It, where she buys stuff and delivers it to people. Sort of like Grub Hub, but she will get most anything. Most of the clients do order food. Ian is by far our oldest, 34, I adopted him in a previous marriage. He also has either bipolar with psychosis or schizoaffective disorder. He also has PTSD. He hated his adopted mom, so Karla adopted him. He won’t accept his Dx. either. All were adopted out of foster care. We raised foster kids for 9 years, all of the kids except Ian were foster kids in our house. We had over 35 foster kids over the 9 years.
