At the End of the Day

This post on ThirdMom set me deeply thinking and feeling today.  I love my daughter so much, I ache for her pain so much. We're doing what we think is right here in our household to help ease that, both in regards to race and adoption.  But at the end of the day, it is still her life and her history that she has to absorb and integrate, with all the pain and sadness and rage that is appropriate for her. I hope there are many moments of peace for her along the way.

Thanks so much for the link - it's so hard. All we APs can do it go day by day in the hope that we offer whatever support our children may need as they work through the challenges of adoption.

Glad to meet you - looking forward to reading more.

Yikes, you found my lurking self!

I really appreciate the encouragement and support. Our road is smoothed because of the gifts of honesty and openness you offer us.
