I was also working full time at the Justice Dept. in DC but was able to take the summers off to
be with the children and give my Mom relief. After the divorce their father disappeared and we never heard from him again. (no child support) With God's help and my mother's help the children (5 teenagers at one time) grew up and are responsible adults. My shining star, Paul, died 5 yrs. ago of a massive heart attack at age 38. I can type that sentence but it is so very hard for me to read it without tearing up which is what I am doing now. Enjoy the children -- time goes sooo fast. I know if I didn't have my faith I would not have survived or I would be in a mental hospital today. I believe the Holy Spirit guided me through all those years and took me under her wings.
