Our Full house is getting just alittle bigger!

We have moved in my 19 year old pregnant sister. Our family means the world us and my little has really had it rough I would say her entire life. She became addicted to pills at the age of 16 and really had no one to turn to help. My mother was an enabler for her and felt she needed them to deal with depression and anxiety. My husband and I knew where she was headed and offered many time to have her move in with us so we could help her but she would never come.

In April of this year she found out she was pregnant and knew she had to do something to fix herself so she could take care of her unborn baby. It was not easy for her and yes she did continue to use through her first trimester. She came to my husband and I asking for help and of course we were there. We moved her in and changed her doctor to closer to us. We are happy to say she is now 31 weeks and by the grace of God all is well with her unborn baby girl. She is 100 percent drug free and doing great. We are now preparing our home for a new baby girl due in December. Please keep her and the baby in your prayers.

Teenage Bullying

Well after taking a little while off. I really missed my blogging. So here I am with so much going on. We have pulled my 14 year old out of public school because of intense bullying. For so long he just walked away as other children hit him in the back of the head, trip him as he walked down the hall, called him names because of his tourettes. It was just getting out of control. He wasn't able to focus on his school work because he was so worried about what was going to happen when he left class that his grades were dropping. Of course we went to the principle and we were told it would be taken care of. Well nothing was done. Josh is now doing virtual school at home and making much progress. He started boxing at a local gym run by the police department and his self esteem is improving everyday. I'm really glad that we made this decision for Joshua. If you have any advice I would love to hear it.
