JJ, Mountain Ash, MustangGal...you all speak the truth about this topic and your clarity and wisdom will help keep me focused on what I can do for them. Ya'll keep praying for this family and I'll continue to be Mammaw for the little ones and a friend to Amy and Jane.
MustangGal...bad parenting can bring ones self-esteem down...I'm sorry you went through that. I hope you know better now that it wasn't you...you're perfect just the way you are.
Mountain Ash...what warms my heart is when they're playing and hearing their laughter...I know for a while they're not thinking about home life...and it's a good feeling to know that here they have a place to be where they can giggle and be themselves.
JJ...as usual, you're right. Thanks for the reality check and I will take your advice.
Thanks everyone...big hugs!!!
