Getting settled

So, I have my first foster placement as of today. We'll call her *T*, and she's 17. We're trying to get a little settled. We went to the store first thing, and then went to see my Dad and step-mom. We went to see Christmas lights, and *T* and Lil M seemed to like them. :) I took pics on my phone, but am not sure where I put that cord... so, not sure if I'll be able to get them off soon.

T is 5' 5.5" or so... way taller than me, lol, but who isn't!!! She is slim and seems pretty nice so far. We're trying this out to see if all of us think this will be a good placement for her or not, so she'll be here through Christmas, at least.

I just want to say a huge "thank you" to all of my friends and family... who are absolutely the best. I don't know if T will realize just how big your hearts are... but I hope she does. :)

Anyway, personally, I think it would completely suck to have to move around Christmas, so I'm trying to make this transition as smooth as I can for her. I also don't know what it is like to have a teenager in the house, so let's see how that goes!! LOL. Send up a little prayer for us all, if you want.



  1. This is very nice of you to do this. As far as preaching to others about the having the Christmas spirit, consider what you are doing as walking-the-walk. This is way beyond a kind word or a cheerful holiday salutation. Those are always easy. Hope all works out and that you guys have the chance to form meaningful and lasting bonds.

    It’s also about time someone’s name did not start with the letter “M”. I’ve always felt there was an ulterior motive behind that set-up [I know Skippy’s name does not begin with an “m”, but sources tell me that his real name is Marissa. Thought you could fool me, did ya? :0) ]

    The letter “T” will save the world someday. How? I’m not sure. But if I was you, I’d stock up for the winter;0) You never know if we’ll run out.

  2. What wonderful news! congrats! Merry Christmas!

  3. Congrats on your first placement. Hope it works out well for all of you; especially at this time of year.
