This past weekend was hard. My cousin, the kids dad, in order to help with some of their financial troubles is taking a job overseas for a year. He left Saturday for that year. A year away is hard for an adult but even harder for three kids, two of whom are still babies. The youngest one kept calling me DaDa Saturday. I think she could tell something was going on. This next year is going to be very hard and long for those three kids I’m afraid.
