Blogging is totally a double edged sword. I get so many wonderful, supportive emails and comments. Other people send in ideas that help my kids. Sometimes I’m blessed enough to get comments telling me that what my kids are going through has made them realize that their child needs some help as well.
Sometimes I get comments that aren’t so helpful, the kind that ask if my kids should even be here. Helpful? Not at all. This isn’t helpful to anyone. Sometimes, these people are brave enough to put their name on the comments. Sometimes, they aren’t. Either way, they’re foolish. And, I won’t address them again. My kids are here, getting the help they need. If you think they belong in Ghana, well, you need to gain some literacy skills and read back through all they’ve been through. There is most definitely a plan for them here, it involves a large amount of healing.
The aforementioned comments aren’t the reason that I took down the last post. I think that in my grief over the whole thing, I might have invaded Giggles’ privacy a little. Giggles will now begin the same journey that Bubbly is on. One that involves lots of therapy. Hopefully, hearing what we’re doing will help others. I got so many emails yesterday from people with children from all over Africa who are in the same boat I’m in now. They’re children have been exposed to things that we all wish they had never seen. We’ll work on healing their hearts together. It helps me to know that, as a parent, I’m not alone. The entries that are purely for the purpose of documenting, or venting frustration, will be archived as drafts. Trust me, Bubbly has her fair share of those type of posts labelled under her name.
I’m sad about the whole thing, because I kind of thought my plate was full with all of Bubbly’s therapies. They are her main extracurricular activity now. I guess Giggles will join her in these activities. And, our plate will just get a little more full.
who is very thankful for all your support.
