It's been a long 6 years.
I have had many things to say, but it never felt quite right to say them.
Not long after my husband's brain surgery, we found out that the adoption we so desperately wanted was not going to happen. The circumstances were so out of our control. Yet I knew they were not out of God's. And I believed that it would come to be. That God would supernaturally intervene and change the hearts of those who could do something about it. The sweet girl that you prayed for is now 13. We don't have any contact with her, but she is always in my thoughts.
In the middle of that, the business that we had grown and nurtured had to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy. And it felt so personal. And mean. And ugly. And sad. And it took 6 years to settle. And we had to sell the house that we had built and loved.
But God has been faithful. And I've always been at peace.
I can say without hesitation that I am thankful for it all.
Our sweet girl has gone to college! We are fresh into this empty nesting thing. It is a big change. But it is good. I remind myself often that raising our babies to leave is the point of the parenting thing.
I'd love to hear updates from anyone who might be reading.
I have zero expectations that anyone is reading. Blogs aren't the same and I've started/stopped 317 times.
And it's been actual years.
But for the one of you who might find me, how are you???
