What a Ride It Has Been
What a Ride It Has Been. We were so young when we got married. Also, we were super young when we started having children. Had we stopped at 3 kids, we would be empty-nesters right about now. Wow. That’s a thought!
Instead of being “about done,” we ended up with 4 more kids. We didn’t just adopt more kids, we adopted 4 special needs kids. Our kids need range from Learning disabilities to Dyslexia. Add in the Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Reactive Attachment Disorder. Oh, and there is single-sided deafness and Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome.
Go Big or Go Home
Somedays, I wish I would just go home. I know that is pathetic to say. Realize that we didn’t set out to “save the world” by adopting these special needs kids. Ironically, we had no idea anything was wrong when we chose them. If I had to do it all over again…I would say yes. I would say yes even knowing what I know now. That is the beauty of love.
Are We Done?
There is the firm answering of this question. The answer, right now, is no…we are done. But then, there is God. He tends to rock my world a little more than what I think I want it rocked.
