We are in touch via writing - and while she was in county we spoke on the phone at least monthly. I love her, I miss her, and I hope that one day she will be able to stay clean unrelated to being in jail. I haven't talked to her since she was moved to Gatesville, but do have her ID and sent her some funds and a note on Jpay.
She is an incredible person when straight - works so hard - but besides the drugs, so far she is addicted to really poor choices in her male company.
Landon will be 5 in July - Kaylee turned 3 in February. They are amazingly beautiful and intelligent and loving children. The irony of this dreadful addiction. Kaylee now comes and spends time with us at least once a month. They are both a joy and amazingly exhausting! We are reaching a fork in the road soon, with Landon needing to be enrolled in public school next year for Kindergarten. The current visitation schedule will need to be modified, and I am praying that the other grandparents will not dispute him staying here with us for the school year. Right now he goes and spends a week with them every third month.
We all do get along better than we did when Landon was born - the two sets of grandparents have been the only constants for these kiddos. It seems to be best to have Landon with us and Kaylee with them - Financially, energy-wise, and because it is what they are used to.
Amanda will need a place to parole to - I am researching half-way houses and options. Any suggestions?
How are all of YOU?
