Yup – the dreaded words “you aren’t my real mom” “I hate you” and “my real mom loves me” have arrived. Sweet girl, you’ve so many rejections to overcome, but we are your family now, we aren’t going anywhere. Test us, test us again….it makes us sad – but we aren’t going anywhere. We are strong enough with God’s help we will shoulder you and he will shoulder us all. We are here to kiss and hug you – to assure you life will be OK. Flip the dime and we’ve smiles, giggles with living so many firsts….swim lessons, Vacation Bible School (VBS), MP3 player to lazy summer fun days. From the “I don’t want to” of fear at the onset – to “that was fun, when can I do it again?”
Time is her healer. Time is her teacher.
The best interest staffing happened, we are the officially chosen family for adoption for her……heading into more rocky days ahead, we will be here for you! Deep breath and away we go….blowing bubbles all the way down the path of life ahead. Thank you Dear Lord.
