There is nothing more beautiful than what I just read. You are doing such a wonderful thing for those kids. I have worked in group homes where kids really had no where to go and it makes my heart swell when people are able to open up their homes to ensure that the kids receive the love they deserve. You're truly amazing. I send you my love and positive thoughts!

A long time ago since I have been here.
Time is running and we have a lot to do.
The Kids are with us since 5 Weeks now.

After changing the guestroom to a Kids room and weekly visiting them in the Children´s Home (About 400 miles one way to drive) we could take them home.

But it´s not easy.... we need so many nerves.....

As I already told you they are to small and almost starved. But that´s not all.
The youth office just told us they are traumatized. But they did not told us that they are also have a central nervous system damage, because there Mother drank Alcohol during the pregnancy. That´s called Fetal alcohol syndrome.
They need special education and a lot of time.

We have to train to eat with Knifes and Fork.
They still need diapers..
Just to sit quiet for 5 minutes is hard work.
They can not follow easy rules like "Don´t run with your drinking cup"
....

In September they can go to a special education kindergarten.

I don´t know if we are strong enough..they need proffessional edukator

you sound like just the people to give them lots of love and hugs. You will be amazed at the inner strength you have. It sounds like it will be a lot of work but the change in those precious children will be so worth it.
I have a special needs son and he is such a blessing.
Get into support groups, always good to share with families who are in the same situation as you are.
Will be praying for you.

So sorry to hear of this turn of events in your family...My niece had a very sensitive divorce and the little girls are still sad about "having two houses". I hope you can help the little ones to smile again and remember that they are loved no matter what.
God bless!
