Thanks for the Prayers!!

I appreciate everyone who is praying for me. It really means alot.

Not doing much this weekend and I would post pictures but the battery on my camera died today when I was at the beach with Asha so I can't upload them to post them. I did get a cute on of me and Asha though that I do want to post when I get another battery.

My camera is a battery hog so I have to splurge and get these $9 batteries so it might be a little while until I can post pictures.

I got Asha the cutest little bikini on sale but the bottoms are too big for her skinny little waist so I have to safety pin them. I was going to just put them away for next year but she wasn't having any of that. Once she saw it she was going to wear it no matter what. Before I pinned the bottoms she would put them on and then shake her little hips to get them to fall off and then she would laugh that she had a naked butt hanging out. Her new thing is that she wants to be naked. She keeps asking if she can go to the store, school and anywhere else we are going naked. I keep telling her that they will throw us out if she is naked. I said "Yes you are cute naked but there are people in this world that we do not want to see naked and if you walk around naked then they will want to walk around naked." That brought about a big "WHY?" We have been at this stage for a few months now and I just don't have anymore answers for the "WHY" question. I have tried explaining everything in as many ways as I can and it just doesn't work and I had previously taught her that because is not an answer so when I say because she tells me that that's not an answer. She's just too smart for own good sometimes.

She is doing really well. The tantrums have settled down alot and we've really been having a good time together. She does have pink eye right now which I'm not even really sure she ever had but according to her dad's girlfriend she did. I have seen no signs of pink eye at all. She has been really good about me giving her the drops though. She lays down and closes her eyes and I count each drop I put in and then she blinks and is on her way. No fits or tantrums or anything. She is just amazing. I hate getting drops put in my eyes but it's nothing to her.

She's also been asking alot about her brothers and sisters lately. I let her know that Dakota and her bio brother are her brothers and that her bio sister is her sister. I think it is hard to see kids at school with their brothers and sisters and she only gets to see Dakota every other weekend and her other bio sibs once a year. It makes me want to move closer so they can see eachother more but that won't happen because it's just waaaaay too hot in Florida for me. I know she misses having Dakota around and I've even thought about foster care for an older child but I can't afford that right now. I would have no problem adopting an older child from foster care if I had the room and the money. I know Asha would love having an older sibling. She gets along so well with my friend Debbie's daughter who is like an older sister to her.

Well it's been kind of a long emotional day and I need to get to bed but again thank you all for the prayers and I will try to be a better blogger. I am also going to get this blog back to what it originally started out to be and that's about Asha.
