    In the early stages of our foster care journey, I became consumed with fear. I’d fallen in love with our sweet girl after just 3 short months and I was so scared to lose her. I experienced a tremendous amount of anxiety and worry in my body because of the presumed fear of losing her. My thoughts about losing her were so real that my body physically reacted. I cried constantly, I couldn’t sleep, I was short-tempered and the fear was always there. As time went on, court case after court case with no change at all, I knew I couldn’t continue living this way. I couldn’t keep worrying about losing her because it was depleting me.

Does that make sense?

I was worrying so much about something that might happen, that I was physically responding as if it had happened. I was putting myself through it even though I didn’t have too.

When I realized I was in control of the narrative in my head, everything changed. Sure, I was still scared. I was scared until the day someone told me YOU will be the forever. And having emotions like fear are fine. We shouldn’t try to NOT feel emotions. We just need to ensure the emotions don’t gain power over us.
And how do we do that? By reminding ourselves of the truth. 
Will it hurt if I lose her? Yes. Have I experienced hurt before and successfully overcome it? YES. Have I felt hurt and pain and grown to be stronger through it? Wow, YES I have. 
You may feel like a great loss will kill you, but the reality is you will wake up the next day, still breathing. Normal life will still be right there begging for you to come love and learn and discover who you are. I could have missed 2 years of life. I could have lived, without really living. Existence without experience. 
If you’ve heard that reel playing in your head, your fears controlling your mind, you have the power to stop it. YOU get to say how you want to live your life. How you feel today is not circumstantial, its mental. ❤️.

    I’m reposting this photo of the Will and Grace pups to remind you of their story.  This was when we first got them.  Karen isn’t in the photo, she was in the ER fighting for her life.  They came from a hoarding case, where their owner died and no one knew they were in the house, waiting to be discovered.  They had been neglected, and all of them needed medical care.  Now they need a forever home, where they can know forever love and care.  They are thriving in their foster home, but are seriously bonded and all 4 must go together.  Read their full bios on our website https://www.puplandiadogrescue.org/adopt. .

We know these pups will take a special adopter, but we know we can find one ❤️

    Instant Family (2018)
Genre: comedy/drama
My rating: 9/10
I absolutely loved this movie. While you’re not sobbing your eyes out, you’ll be grinning like a fool at the feel-good moments in this movie. I enjoyed the little details in this (like when Lizzy uses the detangler when her hair isn’t even tangled and when the religious couple is the first to support the gay couple) and the acting was incredible too. It had the right mix of funny moments and heart touching moments. 
Did I like it: loved it 
Would I watch again: yes and i recommend everyone to watch it

    One month with the littles. One whole month. It feels like it’s been a lifetime. It is a really odd and heartbreaking thing to raise somebody else’s babies. I think all the time about what they are missing that I am getting to experience. This month little guy learned how to eat with a spoon, he now can sit for a book and enjoy it (I’m not sure he had ever been read to before..), he has learned how to wait (mostly) patiently while I cook a meal vs screaming at my feet the whole time, he is still struggling but he whines and cries a little less each day. For the first time he didn’t scream himself to sleep and I actually heard him talking and singing to himself in his crib before he fell asleep today. (Major win). Baby girl is super alert, she has already weaned herself from nighttime feedings and sleeps most of the night through, she coos and smiles and I heard the tiniest hint of a laugh from her the other day. She knows when I leave a room and does not like it. She is growing like a wildflower and looks bigger everyday. Y’all- this has been the hardest and most taxing month of our lives. There is still a part of me that wonders if we ever should have taken this placement because it’s done a number on every aspect of our life especially Evy... but we really do know this is exactly what we should be doing. Even Evy can learn that we can do hard things and that mommy and daddy are still 100% here for her through it all. God is the best for providing extra energy and people showing up in our lives time after time. You guys are amazing and your love, prayers, and encouragement have been a blessing. It takes a village. Here’s to wherever the journey takes us. xoxo.
