This is true…life does go on. But it’s often easier said than done. I don’t share a lot of our foster care journey because I have teens and I want to respect their privacy, as well as the trust they have given me. I wish I could shout to the world everything that happens because I think when you get the inside story, it can often encourage you to do something about the injustices of the world. And that’s always the purpose of any entry that falls under the foster care and adoption side of this blog. I want the teens everywhere to find families that love them unconditionally, support them as they come into adulthood, hug them when words fail, and give them a true home and family where they can be exactly who God made them.
But…I can’t! So, all I’m saying in this blog today is that healing happened inside our family this long weekend. It’s beautiful. It’s a moment among many that have come before and many that I pray will come after. But the moments that happened this weekend leave me content. I am content with our family. I am content with my parenting. I am content with my marriage. I am content with the healing that came. Content is a very nice place to be. If you knew what I know, I think you’d run to your local foster care agency and sign yourself right up!
