It has been amazing to see recent progress in Malea. She is so much happier and just doing so much better mentally. Her back is still causing a lot of pain - but we have seen progress a little there - so physical therapy is helping.
We've recently been really thinking of moving. Malea even wants to pack up her room. I have a lot of work to do though here - so I don't know that we'll be able to try to list the house as soon as she would like. We found a house that we all love. She really wants to move there. I'm sure it won't be available by the time we sell - but if it is meant to be - it will still be there!!!
Things had been going a little better all around until yesterday. My MIL stopped by to drop off some material for me to give to Malea. It was a passage on forgiveness. She was reflecting back to my letter about Malea stating she didn't want anything to do with her family. She basically said that Malea needs to forgive them. That is not the issue. I will not tell Malea about this - but man does it really make me so incredible angry. It is NOT Malea's fault. She has every right to feel the way that she does. They treated Dave poorly and they aren't sorry for it. They will never love my kids like other kids in the family. They don't deserve to know them. I'm really tired of this being brought up. I really lost it and was glad my Mom was there to back me up. I probably wasn't very nice and Dave might have been mad at me. I just can't keep doing this. I have to protect my kids and bringing this up hurts me and my kids. I would really like our progress to continue - but stuff like this needs to stop happening and I don't know how to stop it :(
I'm still trying to figure out what is making Keagan so angry and causing his attitude problem. I started thinking maybe it is because I've been going to the gym and spending less time with him. It could be that...I'm not sure. We go to therapy tonight and I might ask her what she thinks since Malea is doing so well.
