have to break a promise

i promised photos by this weekend but that isn't going to happen....for months.

unfortunately, my home was broken into on Thursday afternoon while I was at work. The perp kicked in my back door and stole several cameras and photo printers, video cameras, iPod docks, my children's piggy banks, food, a breast pump and much much more...including my sense of safety.

We are in the process of filing a homeowner's claim but being I've never dealt with something like this, have NO idea how long it will be before I am able to replace some of the things that I've lost.

The worst part of this whole ordeal....when I got my ultrasound to find out what I was having, I opted to NOT find out. I had the US tech write it on a piece of paper and seal it up for my fiance incase he just HAD to know. Well, he never opened it, but instead tucked it away in the sealed envelope. This horrible horrible person who did this to us, opened that envelope. They are now one of two people who know what I'm having. I'm crushed. I'm angry. I'm....speechless.

Right now I'm a mix of emotions. Feeling unsafe, a little depressed when I look to the spot where my son's piggy bank was...the one that had all his firsts written on it...with dates, names...everything for his first year of life. I'm sure smashed and in the trash by now. I'm angry and hating the world.

So, yeah. Thats where I am. And I'm being forced to break my promise to take pictures.

I'm sorry.

How horrible - I am so very sorry.......thankfully no one was home when it happened and even though all those things were taken your family is shaken but unharmed....again I'm so very sorry.

I am so very sorry. And so very sad that someone would be so heartless. Big hugs to you.

That is terrible! I'm so sorry you had to go through that. I know from experience that the feeling of violation is the worst. There are truly some abhorable people in the world *hugs*

Although I am reading this long after it happened, I have to say that I'm so sorry this happened to you. My family experienced something like that more than 20 years ago, but I SO remember how we all felt in the weeks afterword....You will feel safe in your home again, and Karma will bite that person in the behind someday....
