So Monday was a big day around here. One that will forever be important for Super D. One that changes the course of his life forever.

I wanted to be there.

It was short, and rather rudimentary. Words were read, like "in the best interest of this child" and "severe and permanent" and "clear and concise". It was a little hard to swallow.

And I wanted to cry, but my tears aren't what is needed.

This is the beginning of the next step, the next trials, the next few months. We are so grateful to have D in our family, he is not leaving anytime soon!

But I think it important to also recognize that it's the end of so many things for him. A permanent ending, a severing from what is suppose to be.

And that is undeniably difficult.

  1. That right there is the tug of adoption. Beautiful, redemptive, mind blowing.
    The grace of God.
    And ugly, painful and sad that it had to happen at all.

    All at the same time.
