      Thanks for sharing, Shannan. I shall now do the same!

      p.s. I AGREE. This is lovely, and kind, and wonderfully comforting to those who usually feel far too alone. Thank you!

    We are sisters. You are not alone. I want to share with you that He has made something beautiful of all the pain that was endured in our daughter now 12 and doing so well. There is always hope.

      Thank you for sharing! It’s great to hear of the success stories, when so often we hear about the horrors instead. Our daughter is 9 1/2 now, and we have seen great strides this year…mostly since I’ve started homeschooling her. And you are absolutely correct. There is always hope! Blessings.

    I think I will print this and read it every morning before I wake up my kiddos. It is beautiful. It is right. It is true. My feelings are so tempermental and untrusting….but this….I can cling to it as I cling to Him. Thank you.

      I should probably do the same! It’s easy for me to write how I feel and what I know to be true, but so much harder for me to live it. We’re all works in progress, aren’t we? One day at a time, Sweet Jesus…

    This articulates so well what I have been experiencing as an adoptive mom and have been fearful to say out loud. Thank you!

    THANK YOU… I say that with tears in my eyes… sometimes I feel like I am frozen in place while the rest of the world is moving forward… hearing this helps. Blessings.

    thank you for being so honest.. We adopted two older children four years ago, and more often than not, I hate who these children have turned me into. I was a FUN mom to my previous biological kids, but I don’t get a chance to be with these two. We’re just working too hard at surviving a day at a time. I often feel like God brought them to us, and then abandoned us all, but deep down I know that isn’t true, or we wouldn’t have made it this far.
