Sweet Pea had a visit with bio mom today. Found out bio dad just went to jail and may be there a year. To be so young and have so many problems as these two is very sad to me. I do know some of Dad's family background, and it seems his childhood environment was also rocky, which would explain his behavior. Mom is always so kind to me, and when I watch her trying to parent Sweet Pea and her siblings, it does sadden me to think that she may not get them back. However, I have to be concerned most for Sweet Pea's safety, and unfortunately Mom and Dad have not been following plan and have criminal and drug problems. Mom is also just a little bit "off", if you can understand that. Some sort of disconnect. Although the selfish part of my soul wants to shout hooray at this latest information (about Dad), I pray for this man that maybe the jail's chaplain will find him and he may come to know Jesus to help sustain him throughout his sentence. Also, every time I take Sweet Pea to a visit (when mom shows), I thank God that I have come to know him, that through His grace he has made me a Mommy, that my family is intact, and that he has blessed me with the opportunity to be a stay at home Mommy, and that he has given us the honor of raising these wonderful foster children, even if only for a little while.
