That post was written last summer and in the last year and a bit, things have changed. The girls' mother has moved away and our contact has lessened with her, but our contact with extended family has increased. We have began contact now with the girls' father's side of the family (although not with him).
There are days that I love the contact and there are days feel like I live in a fishbowl. Some days are easier. Some days are harder.
But the girls and the boys are thriving. They are loved by many and that is good.
Edited to add: The hits are coming from HERE Thanks for taking the time to read, and to share.
