Currently I'm struggling with something.
Every year our church has camp meetings just across the state line about 150 miles from where we live.
I've been attending quite regularly since I was a baby.
This year and last year we've had to miss them.
To go out of the state with a foster child requires written permission from the birth parents.
We already had a wedding this month that required an out-of-state permission slip.
Birth mom is not real cooperative about this, and we figured once a month was pushing it.
The sweet little gal who is currently snoozing in my arms is totally worth this.
But there is a part of me that struggles with this.
Being a parent is hard.
You will miss important events because your children are sick.
You will lose sleep, dignity, and privacy.
It just comes with the territory.
