Babies, Inducements and Rest!

Tonite is a wierd kind of nite for me. I sent one to the hospital for a planned inducement tomorrow, one is planning for Monday morning at 5:00 a.m. (thanks goodness I am not on duty til 9 a.m.) and then my new arrival, she is 12 and 6 months pregnant. I really wanted to call mom and tell her all about this.....

Can you believe that the girl going in the hospital tonite asked me to come stay with her at nite after the baby delivered? She actually thought I would be quiet! I do remember one of the names my dad called me when he was heavily into the CB area. Rachetjaw! I guess I have changed alot this year. So tonite I sit here pondering the world we live in??? Many times I have questioned whether I raised my three kids the right way, whatever that means. I think looking at the happenings around my house today...I did a darn good job! I love you Becka,John and Ben and then my two "in-laws" Georgiana and Lance!

Before I could finish this letter in walked Jennifer and the girl that was due to go to the hospital! They were too full to take her. So I got her and the others ready for bed then Jennifer calls me at 10ish saying the hospital called and they now have room for them. Life is funny! Here at the promise house is beginning to be funny. God does have a sense of humor I believe.

Today when the girls got home from school one of the girls hurriedly called me to her room. She had a tan pair of pants on and up near the waist band on the rear of the pants she just knew for sure that the stain was blood. I, of course, asked like where from...she responded with....well I will let your imagination play with that one. So...the more that I looked at it I thought I think I know what this is. I went inside our apartment, asked Jesse if one of the 6 Sonic Route 44 drinks could have spilt on the front seat of the van where this young lady had sat on the way home from school..He said "Sure did!" Case solved!.....now on to our next adventure. By the way I had a good laugh. Laughter is good for the soul!

Susan,
I will try to comment on your blog when I remember to go read it. I can't believe there is a 12 year old in the Promise House. So, does she see her parents? I know it must be hard seeing these girls go through this. But, at the same time, you are making it easier for them. Keep up the good work! I'll bet you never thought you would have more kids after 40!
