    Talking OT - Older daughter sure surprised me last night!

    Some of you may already know that my older daughter has had a lengthy history of health problems. She's only 31, but due to a particularly nasty type of Lupus, has already had to have a historectomy (sp?). She and her hubby tried for years to have a baby, and the one time she finally got pregnant was disasterous for her health, and she lost the baby. On top of that, back in October, she had a really bad car wreck (thanks to her drunk brother in law!) and broke her back and arm. Poor kid hasn't been able to catch a break.

    Anyhoo - last night, she and her hubby show up at my house (after midnight, no less). Seems that they have been blessed with a baby boy! One of her husband's family members has a stepdaughter that had a baby while still a teenager. The girl realized, after 16 months, that she was just not ready for motherhood, and she turned custody of her son over to my daughter and son in law!

    So happy to welcome 16 month old Logan to our family!

    Sorry, I know it's not horse related, but I just had to share!!!!

    (I am also hoping that Logan's birth mother doesn't change her mind!)

    Morning all!
    Busy night at the barn last night. I wanted to start grooming and spiffing up Josie for Saturday but that turned in to a NOPE! When I got there they were chasing the minis as they had escaped. So I stayed out of that side of the barn. Went to the other side and made a fuss over my girl Dee instead. Got her haltered up and took her for a nice walk. She did really good and we only had to stop 2 times on the way back up the hill. Once we made it back, I let her graze on some nice crisp grass in the side pasture. That was until the darn mini's escaped yet again!

    Took us about 20 minutes to finally capture them and get them put back in to where they belonged.

    Saturday is going to be here before I know it.
    .

    Fox...sounds like you had quite the day and deserve the rest. But how is it that we got none of the pie you speak of?

    WG. Glad to see that your baby is gettng better. Allergies are such a hard thing to narrow down especially if it is something like dust. My one girl Dee has heaves so I have to really watch the dust around her and water everything. Maybe that would help your girl.

    OH MY LORD how exciting!!!!

    Now, not to sound like a nagging nelly or to tell you what to do, but if I were your daughter, they need to get this done legally. She should have to go in front of a judge and sign off her parental rights. That way she can't decide in a year that ooops I really DO want to be a mom. Also, this way they could offer her some type of visitation as well. You know an open adoption type thing.

    Well that is my two cents and I am sure you know all that but just want to help so that hearts aren't broken.

    Also: WHERE ARE THE PHOTOS????

    The plan is to contact their attorney this morning to get the papers all drawn up and signed. In the meantime, they have a notorized letter from the birth mother giving them custody, so they can take him to the doctor if the need arises.

    It will be an open adoption, since the birth mother is family, and they all know each other pretty well already.

    Here is a quick, and really awful picture of the happy family I took on my cell phone last night. Of course, I couldn't find my camera when I wanted it!

    OH my Lord. Would you look at the smile on your daughters face? Priceless. I am sorry if I came off as bossy! Just trying to look out for everyone. The poor puddum looks like he is going to be a handful!!! In a good way.
