my heart

My heart is breaking. Candy just told me that they are moving to Dallas in Decemver. Just for 3 months she said. BS nobody moves for 3 months. You don't pull a child out of school in the middle of a semester and cause them to miss school, change them to another school, and then 90 days later change them back. This will cause her to be held back for 3rd grade. You can't  move kids in the middle of a grading period. Does she have any idea how much harm this will cause? She promised that she would not move her out of her school before she finished 5th grade. She will miss out on getting her black belt in Taekwondo because she will miss 3 or more months of training. Right now she could possible test in the spring, September at the latest. That won't happen if she is not in constant training. She will miss all her friends. She will lose her medical coverage.

I don't know how I will survive not seeing her. I know she says 3 months, but what  if she decides to stay there? They probably will. After all, all of his family is there. She said she will be surrounded by family. I don't count, I guess. She will be surrounded by strangers to her. Her family is here. The only family she knows.

I said if it is only 90 days, why not leave her here so her life is not disrupted. No, she says. She is mine. She goes where I go.

My head is exploding, I feel like I am going to be sick.

  2. I'm so sorry.  I remember how it felt when my first grandbaby went to Germany for 2 years.  It was horrible.

  13. (((((((Celeste))))))))   My heart aches too, just to hear it.  Moving for three months does sound like an odd plan to me.  There is still two months for something to change.  Perhaps Brook's instructor can recommend or refer a place in Dallas to continue her training, uninterupted.  She will get through it, because we're gonna wrap her in prayer.  And we're gonna hold you up to for the courage, wisdom and strength you need to be brave for her.  -  Barbara

  14. Oh Celeste....I agree with you....I dont think its three months but maybe what she is saying is she wants to test the waters and see if she likes it there before she is certain...its so hard to be away from people we love....I hope she comes back and hates it there..-Raven
