So we are now participating in the Family Assessment Response Program of CPS in Washington State.  I have to say, I did NOT see this coming.  My Social Services Specialist is my ally and she has my back.  I feel empowered.  I feel validated.  I will not say vindicated because there was no battle.  My enemies attempt at bringing me down only made us stronger, because my army just increased by a couple government agencies.  I can stop looking over my shoulder, because I befriended the things I was afraid of.

I’ve been asked to turn off this whole event in my brain for the holidays, as it does not need my attention again until January 5.

As I said….I did NOT see that coming.

And I’ve an edit for the old axiom.


Don’t let it kill you, because it will make you stronger.
