Beaten Path

  I'm trying not to get discouraged but I've been down this path before.  Adopting kids from hard places means that they sometimes bring the bangs and bruises from those places with them.  And you can't see the hurts - just the outward anger and sadness that they cause.  Most of the kids let you love them and they heal little by little.  
  But not all.  And here I am again feeling hopeless and tired.  Maybe this time when I look down the path there will be a glimpse of sunlight.  Maybe this time we won't get lost in the woods.

Time and patience and lots of love, which I know you have an abundance of........ also, Kate, I believe you are getting through much more than you realize, you just can't see it yet:) God Bless you for all you and James do and have done over the years!

As another mother walking a similar difficult path, I just want to say - hang in there! Baby steps. Savor them when you can so they can fortify you for the long walk ahead. You are doing more than you probably realize right now, and I admire your unconditional love. Blessings, Lori, mom to nine
