The pressure is off.
We got a phone call letting us know that the inspection has been canceled. The decision was made TODAY to place the children back with the father, and therefore, we are out of the picture.
What a mish mash of emotion. We went through all that work, money, time, stress…and now, poof! It’s like it’s all gone. An illusion. Not real.
There’s a sense of relief, an easing of the pressure. That was getting pretty intense, like the thumbscrews were being tightened till something had to give! All of a sudden, the pressure is gone. There’s kind of a nothingness there. It'll take me a little time to get used to that, now.
But on the bright side, the kids are able to go back to the parent, and lots of nice things have been done to the house. We can continue to repair and renovate, but at a much more mellow pace. Who knows? We might even start to enjoy it!
Thanks for your supportive comments and encouragement and prayers!! We appreciate them all!
