Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We have so much to be thankful for this year! This is Little Man's first Thanksgiving with us and we are definititely thankful that we have him here to celebrate this year
:-) I think Thanksgiving will be this kid's favorite holiday because it involves his favorite activity---EATING!!!

Little Man's permanency hearing is next week and so is the one year marker of his arriving at our home. It has been a good 2 months since he has had any "after visit" nightmare wake-ups...that is until last week. His Dad's visits have been reinstated and with the all that is coming next week there is some definite stuff in the spiritual realm that is going on! He had a visit yesterday and last night he was just fitfull in his sleep and around 10:30 he had "THAT" scream! He is really only half awake, but is so overcome that it's hard to settle him back down. He is fearful and can't relax to go back to sleep. This has only ever happened after his visits. I am THANKFUL that he is in our home and that we have the opportunity to pray over him when he is feeling this way! God has taught me a lot about spiritual warfare in the past year and just what a position we are in for Little Man (and any other child/ren that come into our home).

Have a BLESSED day blog friends!!!! We will :-)

Poor Little Man! It's absolutely amazing of the way that these visits affect the children. My little Princess has been an emotional wreck since her last visit.

I'll keep little man in my prayers.

I am so sorry that he has to endure that. When our son was first placed with us he would wake up every night with "that" scream. There was nothing you could do to snap him out of it. It has been a long time since I heard it but when I read this that feeling came right back. I am so glad that your little man is in a place now where he knows love.

He left for a visit today, but his mom didn't show up for the visit, so I am hoping that we won't have to endure that together again tonight! I hate when he has to go through that!
