Christmas Day Visit

(S) went to visit with hermom and dad today. It was supposed to be a nice Christmas visit. when we got there, there was a new princess bicycle under the tree that S went right to. She knew it was hers, and it looked like today was going to be a good day. We would go back to pick her up at 3:00pm.

Unfortunately her mom called at 1:30 and asked us to come to pick up S as her dad had a seizure and the ambulance was there to take him to the hospital. We rusehd over to get S and she was crying. She said she was scared because her daddy had left.

We certainly hope that all is fine. God knows she has been through enough in the last year, she doesn't need anything else added to her at just 3 years old.

When we got back to the house, we played with the toys that she had under our tree and then after dinner we put together a ginger bread house that we had bought. Neither me nor my wife had ever done one before and we had fun. Most importantly, it kept S's mind off of her father.

One of the people from the reunification group called. Apparently she had heard what had happened to dad. She was concerned about S and wanted to make sure everything was ok.

Well, back to trying to enjoy the rest of the day. Merry Christmas everyone!


  1. I hope that everything turned out OK with "s" father. I can imagine that was terrifing.

    Have a good "day after".
