It feels so great to be home! I know Olivia and Avery would agree! Olivia is doing great. Her discharge echo showed normal function in her heart, with the exception of a tiny bit of leakage from a valve, which should resolve on its own. Dr.'s said she should never need another heart surgery She's breathing very well, and is wide awake She's a completely different baby! She's not constantly sleepy like she was before. Now that her heart works correctly, she can be a normal baby She has stopped sleeping in her crib, she will only sleep in the wrap, in bed with me, or in the swing. Not a huge deal, although I could potentially get in trouble for letting her sleep in bed with me (foster care rules). Right now she comes first, rules can come later! She's very happy and content. I'm excited to see her personality after she's taken off of the blood pressure medication. With her blood pressure normal, I imagine she will be even more active!

Madison was picked up early this morning to be moved to a new foster home, and Solas was brought by about an hour ago. His sweet little face when he saw me was priceless and heart-melting! He's very happy to be back and is adjusting seamlessly. It's definitely an adjustment for me to get used to having another toddler in the house again!

Thank-you everyone for your continued prayers and thoughts, they've made all the difference for me. This last week was incredibly hard, but knowing I had a whole community online praying for us, in addition to our friends, family, and church, helped me get through each day. God is good

Thank-you ladies!

Solas is settling in, it's like he never left! Only thing different is that he gets very scared if I leave the room or house. Thankfully I'm off of work for 4 1/2 more weeks while Olivia recovers, so he'll have plenty of time to adjust.

Kerian, at least 6 months. Grandma let Bio-Dad see him, which breaks one of the conditions she had Solas on. There's a 6 month probation period before the state will even consider giving her a second chance. (Dad was the main abuser, and the reason Solas is delayed by a year).
