thank you so much for the insight GS. This is all very new to all of us involved and this experience I think will grow all of us. I have troubles with patience sometimes, but will continue to work on that. the relationship with us two girls is lacking a bit and some girl time is probably a good idea. she just got back from Iraq, so the relationship with him and I has been able to grow for a month without her presence. I have only known her for 2 weeks now, but we hit it off right away and have a pretty special bond already. Finding or creating the time for one another seperately will most def take time to develop, I just hope we can all find the happy medium that makes everyone happy in the relationships developed....
