Here is my target, the N.Y. Association of Child Services (ACS). They need to be mortally wounded, they have no clue as to how their one size fits all 'hospital gown mentality' Doesn't fit all!

Good Morning: Hope everyone had a restful night and is fresh and able to start in on a new day. I pray for us all to be helped in our struggles this day. I pray for a clear mind to be able to help my friends deal with their problems and I also pray that I can navigate the "system" well enough to be able to deal with mine. The water heater went out yesterday--something entirely unexpected, esp. after the air conditioner was just worked on and fixed the day before. What a deal! Thank God the landlord gets to deal with that and not me. I could not get the money together for that sort of thing. If it was up to me to pay for it, I would have to heat water on the stove, as long as I could keep the electric service on and bathe the baby and I would have to bathe in cold water! But, lucky for me, I don't own the house, so I can call on the landlord. So, you know what they say, "The Lord works in mysterious ways." I always wanted to own another house since my home burned down 12 years ago, but when you have to deal with constant expensive repairs maybe that isn't always the best option. Well, here I go forth to try and slay another dragon! Wish me luck in dealing with the New York "dragons" and pray that I am able to deliver a swift blow to them so that my grandchildren in distress can be saved.

It is ten and the baby is asleep, so I think I will head to bed also. I am exhausted, probably mental stress combined with the physical stuff. I am so mentally fatigued right now that I am amazed that I can keep my eyes open. Just want to say that I am saying a prayer for all my aidpage friends tonight. God Bless each and every one of you. Stephanie.

Above is a picture of God's Rainbow. I pray that I find my wish at the end of it. I wish you all rainbows, to heal your hearts after the rain. I am feeling the rain now, but I know that after the rain stops--there will be a rainbow! Stephanie.

I am trying to answer personally everyone who writes to me and tries to let me know that they are thinking of me and my situation, praying for me, and sending comforting messages. Please understand if I missed sending you a note, it was an oversight. I am, like all of us, imperfect, although I am trying. Please know that I go to all the aidpages and try to advise where I would look for help, since some people really do have no idea where to turn and do not know about some options that they may be able to access. I thank you all for the love and concern. It means so much to me. I know that through these pages I have gained some friendships with people I would never have met any other way. Thank you all very much. Stephanie.

Wednesday, May 23, 2007: Sleep was difficult, got a really nice note from an aidpage friend. It came just as I was sitting here feeling very down, It helped a lot. I know that somehow God will help me. I sometimes wake up at night thinking I heard them calling me and then I can't sleep. It is difficult to feel like they need me and I can't even talk to them, let alone see them and hold them close. I feel like they need comfort and I can't give that to them. I long for them to hurl themselves at me, throwing their arms around my neck, wild with laughter, or scared of the "monsters in their room" or just because they want to say, "I love you, Grandma."

Keep your chin up, Hon! You WILL overcome this. And what a triumph it will be, the day that you are able to hold those grandbabies again and NO ONE will be able to take them from you again.

Early Wednesday a.m. can't sleep. I was in bed, but I am unable to sleep right now, probably combination of worry and aches and pains of the fibromyalgia. I checked the baby, who is sleeping like an angel, but I am not quite so fortunate. I didn't get to talk to the kids, as they didn't get to the assigned place to visit with their Mother. I don't know if she went to see them or not. That is part of the problem, she doesn't go often enough and then sometimes she goes all the way from Brooklyn to the Bronx and the foster care "Mother" doesn't get there with the children! It is really crazy. I don't understand any of it. Imani was two yesterday and Jadah will be five on Saturday. I wanted to say "Happy Birthday" to them, at least. I can't send them anything, wish I could but then I am not sure they would get it and I also don't have the money to get stuff for them. I am reasonably sure that the Law Guardian and Social Worker make notes on that and will use it to crucify me to the court. I know it sounds terrible but I don't trust the foster care agency to send letters or pictures to them if I send them because I have never gotten one picture they have drawn or anything back after sending things and I know Jadah would make me something,(since I had asked)Funny, she used to send me stuff when she was with her Momma. I just don't trust these people at all. They have already proved to me that they don't care one bit about promoting a relationship between the kids and I. I keep praying and I hope you all will also. Thanks for every single prayer, message, comment, offer of advise...I am grateful to everyone, for any contribution to the cause-no matter what it consists of.

Boy, what a mess is my life--NOW, after I told the people at Dish Network to shut down the account, and I would send their crap back to them--they went and took money out of my account and overdrew my bank account! I have never had an insufficient fund check and now I have! I had called the bank and told them I didn't authorize any more money out of my account by anyone, then I called the Dish idiots and told them to NOT take money out or I would have to sue their butts...Well, now I am really hopping mad! I called the bank, left a message and told them that after banking there for over ten years that I was very upset at this and so they may as well close the account and forget me ever banking there again. It won't happen. I am tired of people NOT LISTENING when I make it plain what I want done on things like this. MERCY SAKES ALIVE!

Monday May 21, 2007. Imani turns 2 today. I am so sad, haven't been able to spend her first birthday nor her second birthday with her. Jadah will be 5 years old on Saturday the 26th. I am hoping to be able to talk to them when visiting time rolls around tomorrow for their Mother. I hope that I can at least have a few minutes to talk to them. I hope that they are OK. I miss them so much. 23 months is a long, long time to spend without seeing them.

The pics of Jadah and Dante, that have the dates on them were taken by their Mother in N.Y. about 6 months before they were removed from home by the ACS department. The picture of their Momma and Imani was taken when Imani was newborn, at my home in Nebraska, before they had left here. How on earth can anyone expect me to not be totally devastated? Laura (my daughter) would tell them to smile so she could send a picture of them to Grandma coz she loved them so much and missed them a lot! Cute aren't they? They looked hot, they didn't have air conditioning and this was August in the city.
