Trying to stay positive....

The past couple of weeks have been a little rough. The adoption process is much more difficult than I ever imagined.

Working in a rehabilitation hospital, I have the good fortune to be reminded of how blessed I truly am on a daily basis. I think this helps me forget about the "little things". Having reasonably good health, and a supportive family are two of the most important things in life. I have those, and I am blessed.

I could go on and on about how difficult it is to wait, but I am reflecting on some of the things I have seen at work just today and can instead say, how difficult it would be not to have something so wonderful to wait for.

I often think I am sad or worried about the adoption. I am often reminded of what it really means to have no hope. I am so grateful to be full of hope.
