We have tentative plans to go get K and A Saturday. My Aunt and Uncle want us to spend the night Saturday and leave out Sunday. I'm sure it's to look at us in our eyes and ask what the fuck we are doing. NYEBoy isn't going to handle the passive behavior very well though. We didn't make all of these plans to move K and A down here to be duped like this. It's going to be very hard not to say exactly what we're feeling in order not to get into a big argument or split the family apart. This isn't about who can do it better, but who is actually going to help these two girls.
NYEBoy and I were talking a few minutes ago about something when he said, "She'll be here at least two or three years. Maybe more." It suddenly hit me, we're in this for the long haul.
I hope our relationship can withstand the two new house guests. I hope my sister succeeds in school to become a productive, self-sufficient mother. I hope the relationship between K and I begins to mend from the past eight years. I hope A makes it out to the other side as un-fucked up as possible. I hope we're all proud of ourselves and our commitment when this is said and done.
It won't be easy, but it will be worth it. I hope.
