Life can be surreal

There’s a whole lot of stuff going on this week.

We just finished sending an email to Reid’s birth mother offering to pick her up for the annual open adoption Christmas party. This will be the fourth year we have done this.

We just found out that a foster situation we have been dealing with for the last year is not going as well as the agency had hoped, so it will still be going on for a while. We don’t know how much longer it will continue. There are so many things that need some involvement from family, but it isn’t. It is unbelievable how frustrating it us when people don’t get the whole picture and his serious things are.

We have seen another situation where things have happened to a child that are just awful, and the child is just dealing with the situation.

It is interesting how our family has been formed by adoption, and continues to be shaped by our involvement with the system.

Adoption has enriched our family and our lives.

    This must be frustrating. I will be praying for you guys, that everything comes together! Family is so important and you have made such a sacrifice to build yours and keep it together, formed in true love. 🙂

    I’m glad you feel this way. Adoption is a beautiful thing. I was adopted 25 years ago and will be publishing a book soon. Please keep in touch with me!
