Thank you for helping us raise money for our adoption.

So, we have recently learned that we will be living with RAD (Reactive Attachment Disorder). It makes me feel so relieved to get a diagnosis and to know why I have been SOO exhausted. I had been feeling like a failure I felt like I wasn't getting ANYTHING done but I was so exhausted and mentally drained by the end of the day. I have felt like I am herding cats and running around in circles when all anyone wanted was a triangle.

We have been doing play therapy, I have even go to be the one in the room with the child. We have seen HUGE improvements, and also we have seen a lot of set backs, and "triggers." I am learning things I never knew I needed to know and sometimes I feel like I am driving through an obstacle course at 100 miles per hour with my eyes closed.

These kids are teaching me a lot and I am lucky to have them.

Adoption Party

So, we are finalizing our adoption in 4-ish weeks, we will be having a party to celebrate this amazing moment. Here is where I need you, I am NOT a party planner, I don't have large pockets, and well I am not good at all this stuff. I need so cheap, fun, easy ideas on what to do for this party. I don't want it to over the top because I DON'T what to stress my kids out. I want it semi low key but fun too. This is a HUGE thing for us, it is even bigger then our wedding.  One thing I do have planned is shaved ice and it WILL be amazing and super tasty. Our party will be from 3-5 so I don't plan of feeding people a meal. I would love some tips, ideas and advice.

Thanks you! Oh, and thanks you too!
