Thanks again for your words of support...They're such precious children and to look at them you'd never know what heaviness is laid on their hearts. Keep their family in our prayers.

Methinks, that given these children's situation, just simple stuff with them, like a picnic next door/ BBQ in neighbourhood park, is a great change of pace for them.

Orchid...That's great advice. Hopefully, they can join us at the fair next week and they're included in decorating the house for Halloween. Judy came over after school and worked on her homework. She showed me work she did in class and asked me to keep it...it was so sweet.

I agree 100% with JJ and most of the others here. Right now the children are fed, sleep comfortably, eat regularily, plus they are together, even though the love and guidance they need they don't get at home. But once social services sticks their nose in when called, all hell could break lose. The kids sent to separate homes of God knows who or where. This way you are near and they know and love you, and you them. You can keep watch so if things did change for the worse you could then and only then report any neglect or abuse. Believe me, having a clean house growing up does not a good, healthy child make!!! It takes so much more and apparently you are their saving grace for now. BRAVO for your kindness.

Dee, I can see you getting extremely attached to these kids. Be careful. I don't want you to get hurt. I would hate to think that the mom would lash out at you if she thinks you're becoming too involved. You never know what addicted people might do.

That's very wise advice, Dotsie. She may get jealous too, and feel she is losing control.
