Leavin' on a Jet Plane

So that dates me. My husband and I are leaving today for a week. No kids. Our 25th wedding anniversary is Feb 11. We are going now during my Christmas break from grad school. I'll tell you more about it when we get back and maybe share some photos. Everyone loves to look at other peoples vacation pictures right? : ) We have had some acting out by the boys. Tough stuff when you are trying to pack and get everything ready for a house full of people staying behind. Grandpa and Grandma are coming today to stay most of the time. Big sister, Eagle will come home on Saturday and stay too. I think they have truly figured out I will not abandon them. I think they are afraid something will happen to me. Of course I cannot guarantee that it won't. I told them they will need to pray and trust. I hope this week if you happen to think of me laying on the beach or snorkeling at a coral reef that you will stop and do something to take care of yourself. Battered moms need that. We may not be physically battered but most definitely emotionally. Stop for that cup of coffee and a magazine, read a chapter from a book, go for a walk or do SOMETHING just for you. Talk to you in a week!

I just found your site. I am the adoptive father of a little girl of trauma. In November, I started a site called http://traumaadoption.org as a resource for parents in just our circumstance. I've added a link to your site in the "Offsite Resources" section - http://traumaadoption.org/adopt/content/living-rad.

Thanks for being transparent about your experiences.
