Still no appeal

We have a few more days to wait until the appeal period ends. CPS is already planning to move our case to adoptions next week. It’s such a weird, in-between place. Do I start telling people? Probably not until the appeal period has passed and until we find out for sure that there won’t be one.

Adoption is a big thing to announce, but with foster care, there’s always that bit of uncertainty. With our twins, I know I didn’t fully relax until the judge signed the form. So many weird things had happened to delay their adoption, and so many times, it seemed like it wouldn’t happen at all.

Plus, it’s difficult to celebrate that someone you dearly love has lost everything, been through horrible trauma, and only ended up with you because there was no other option. 

Am I going to celebrate? Absolutely. There will be dancing and balloons and so many pictures because he deserves to have the same story my twins tell everyone, that their adoption day was a freaking big deal because we love them so much.

But all I really want is that signature, that last piece of paperwork.

Empty Skies /// Masterpost

Summary: For three years, Harry has been running from his past. Now, he is moving to London and pledges to fulfil his only dream — making it big in the music industry. Not everyone has a place, though, and the competition is tough. As is his past catching up on him.

Louis is part of the biggest boy band of the world, and getting there had meant a lot of hard work, as well as sacrificing parts of his heart and soul. He’s still happy. Maybe not as happy as he could be, but who is he to complain?

Featuring Perrie as Harry’s adorable flatmate, Niall as his manager, and Liam and Zayn as Louis’ bandmates.

Pairing: Louis Tomlinson/Harry Styles

Word count overall: ~ 125.000

i remember i made a post that said if you’re a toxic person, keep to yourself, focus on you, and don’t enter into a relationship until you’re ready and you’ve dealt with what makes you toxic to other people

and i got so many messages of people up in arms. saying “how could you say that?” and “everyone deserves love!” and “you don’t have to be perfect to deserve love!”

and all i could think is that they completely missed the point. because no one was even talking about who does and doesn’t deserve love

but you know what someone doesn’t deserve? no one deserves to open their heart to a person who is so toxic that it will destroy their lives. that’s what no one deserves. i don’t believe in this entitlement to relationships. 

i feel like when a person opens themselves up to me, and allows me to love them while also loving me, is a privilege. it is an honor to love and be loved. if you can’t be in a healthy relationship, then don’t be in a relationship. don’t make someone else suffer because you haven’t taken the time to deal with your demons.

 if you have issues with anger, jealousy, inadequacy, abusive tendencies, etc. deal with that. focus on you. take time to sort yourself out. don’t drag a person into your toxicity because you’re afraid to be alone, disregarding how you’re ruining someones life.

I have never seen any other K-pop idol or even a celebrity from another country show so much love and dedication to their fans as Yoongi does. 

He has such a big heart and he is such a beautiful person. Always telling us that we are fine just the way we are, but at the same time being so hard on himself as if he’s lacking. 

He doesn’t have to be perfect for us because he already gives us way more than we deserve. 

I said it before and I’ll say it again: Yoongi warms my heart.
