Trying to make it through

Life has been upside-down for us with the recent news of Katya. It's been overwhelming and hard to function. The house is pretty much a disaster, with laundry everywhere and the lawn overgrown. Tyler & I are still in denial, for the most part. Anna is past denial - she's plain angry and upset that someone else would take her sister. Some things that I find hard is the idea of taking down her picture from my blogs, not being able to say aloud again that we're adopting twins, seeing the clothes that I have for her - and knowing that she will never wear them...it's so hard.

Despite my grief, I've had some friends here to help me make it through. Without them, I'm not sure how I could face the day: today consisted of pizza for lunch, a trip to McDonalds, dinner with friends at a local chinese restaurant, then games & root beer floats at my house. Here are some pictures:

Top picture: Sarah A, Sarah C, Angie, Marie, & Nicole. Bottom picture: Me, the rest same as above. :o) I'm so blessed to have such stellar friends.

My heart is still breaking for you and your family. I'm glad you have friends around you.

Love, Kathey

p.s. It sounds like Anna is actually handling it very normally.

Oh sweetie, I wish I knew what to say. I wish I was there so we could drive around and shout the Fugees at the top of our lungs, that was always cheery. Just remember that HF has a plan..we don't always know what it is or even understand it; but there is a plan. Things will be ok and they will work out the way they are supposed to. I know that doesn't stop the ache in your heart.

Love you girl.

Your post on the adoption blog sounded hopeful. We'll join you in hoping and praying for a miracle. It's just wrong that they would be separated. Thanks again for the fun night! We're here for you.
