~*Healing is a Process: Part 3*~

To be fair to myself I have to admit this has been one of the hardest six months of my life.  Learning to parent differently than we've ever had to before, being faced with the reality of our failures but in the most amplified way.

Some of you will think, "Your being too hard on yourself, its not that bad". Others will think, "You asked for this by adopting two at once and having a baby". 

For the first thinker......thank-you, your sweet, but you truly don't know...it gets UGLY 'round here.

For the second thinker.......you are absolutely not helpful and I don't think we can really use your kind of encouragement 'round here! Move on, please, and cheer someone else up!


Yes, we adoptive families do tend to be quiet about our struggles because we are often faced with the worst naysayers that can pop up. We still need your support, though! Actually, if we get QUIET that is code for you, my dear friends, to ask us how we're doing....

Jody, over at One Love, One Family, wrote something that clearly spoke to my heart. I wanted to get real with ya'll.

Go and read it...I'll wait.

Did you read it? 

No, really...go read it, hurry up!  

Welcome back!

Reality is that this is really hard. Every single day we balance, rather precariously, the emotions of our hurt but healing children.  It takes the simplest things to tip that balance over into disaster.  I won't go into all the many examples we live out each day...not enough time in the day. 

I have an update coming on our Sunshine and a 6 months home post...even though its now 7 months home! 

If your still reading, thank you...keep praying for us, as parents, as we learn something new about living this out each day!

2 Corinthians 5:7
For we live by faith, not by sight.
