Coming Home

Kassi and Noah have moved home. We are not sure for how long but they need to regroup.  Kassi's grandpa passes away a few months ago and her mother moved from Florida to live in his home. She invited Kassi to live with her. I really didn't think it would be a good idea. I really thought it would end is disaster. Her biomom has never put Kassi first, never sacrificed for her.

However, for Kassi it was an opportunity to have her mom be her mom. Needless to say, it didn't end well. Her mom offered her a place to stay and within a few weeks she wanted $25/day from her. Kassi didn't have that kind of income, she was waitressing. I wonder if her mom thought we would pay it. Kassi came out of that house without her car and with a lot of her belongings ruined. More painful, she came with the pain of feeling like her mom was just using her.

That pull of bios is always there. For some it is stronger than others. Larissa will sometimes ask me about her biomom. Emma and Michelle don't mention theirs at all. Anthony doesn't seem interested either. I wonder how that will change over the years.

So we fit in two more and then.....


  1. And then... 😳😱. I'm starting to worry about all your adult children!

    1. Me too! Except Tasha, she just got accepted into the respirtory therapist program she has been working on getting into and Sarah is maintaining her 3.0 at CIU. I am hoping to get both these girls into GED programs. They were in such a hurry to grow up and move out but didn't properly prepare themselves for success.
