We are also leaning towards having D come with me for the whole time. We discussed the fact that it's priceless time for bonding and attachment. And it's something D didn't really get with N. He had to go right back to work.
We did have an offer from a dear friend to stay here at the house with N and S for a good portion of our stay away. But 3 weeks is a really long time to be gone from the kids. We will miss them TERRIBLY.
We are having our agency check into an avenue to be gone a bit less time.
Please help us pray for a solution and leading in the right direction.
