Progress

I'm making progress with the cold. Still coughing and nose is still a little stuffy but at least I don't feel like death warmed over!

Steph is making some good progress!! Last night she went with some friends, I told her the curfew and she was home one time. I was holding my breath. At some point I will stop holding my breath every time she leaves the house. She got home, came into my room, and sat on the edge of the bed to tell me everything she had done while she was with her friends. This is a HUGE step forward - the first time she's ever done this!! They went to Shari's, bought 3 orders of fries to share, drank cokes, laughed and talked. She told me how much fun she had and that she is having to learn how to have fun without drugs. But she had fun!!! When she left my room I gave a huge thumbs up to God for He is the one that is working the miracles in her life right now.

Her counseling is going great and we got the ok to make our move in June! We will be finding a place for her to go in IL but they felt that the change would actually be a positive thing for her. So in a little over 7 weeks we will be heading east to start our new life. We are both so excited. My garage sale will be 2 weeks from Saturday so I have to get busy pricing and organizing.

Thanks so much for your prayers for Steph and for me. She still has a very long road to go but the changes I have seen in her in the last 2 weeks are really good. It is a day by day process. God is faithful and we are both trusting Him with everything we have!

Kay, I am so glad to hear that you'll be coming back to Illinois. I hope everything continues to be positive. The world is full of potholes for our kids. Only with God's help! Keep us informed...

Kay, I hope you are feeling much better soon and completely over your cold. My prayers are with you and Steph on your upcoming move. She is such a beautiful girl and I know that your love and the Lord's guidance will direct her back to where He wants her to be. I am sending you my love, Sister in Christ and some cyber ((HUGS)), too!
