Maryland Visit Highlights
There were lots of sweet times, but I think that the best thing was seeing and experiencing with my own eyes the truth that I've been believing - we can be normal again; we can do this family thing.
Things won't be the "same" - how could we emerge from a season like this unchanged? Heavens, I wouldn't want to go through something like this and come out unaffected. I'm not the same person I was before motherhood, before marriage, before adoption, and I won't be the same person I was before this either. What a waste of all that pain and and brokenness and perseverance and nervous trust that would be!
And this weekend showed us precious glimmers that all these things are possible.
