I saw E. and Mr. R. yesterday.
They were about 25 feet away but I ducked behind some bookshelves so they couldn't see me.
One glimpse of sweet little E. and my heart ached, raw and grieving, for the girls I had practically raised since they were babies.
I need closure. I need to e-mail Mrs. R. back a time that I can drop off the stroller and car seats and say goodbye. I'm going to ask if I can take the girls out for lunch or something, just so I won't have to be in their house. I'll understand if they say no, but I'll try nonetheless.
I'm also writing them a letter. It's hard.
On a lighter note, I may have some good news to share with y'all! I'm waiting for a phone call later today or tomorrow. I'll keep you posted.
I have 2 essays, the letter and a TON of work to be doing right now, so I'm going to run. Cross your fingers for good news!
