Winged Love Whisperers

Today, I woke up feeling a well of gratitude for mothers and fathers everywhere who are raising challenged and challenging children.  Woohoo! YOU rock. YOU are awesome. YOU are probably tired.  
 
When I adopted kids, I did it for myself and my own desire to have children I couldn’t conceive otherwise.  I am not particularly a selfish person, but I had purely selfish motives in this case.  I was not thinking about the kids at the time.  I assumed they would be “happy” to have a loving home with loving parents.  I was truly ignorant to the realities of adoption and had no idea of the pain in the hearts of the children, nor the mountains ahead that would need hooks and chisels and ropes and pulleys to scale. Some of the chasms required wings.
 
My eyes were opened pretty darned fast, as I am sure happened in many of your homes, too.  Then what?  For me, and likely for YOU, an incredibly fierce journey of healing hearts without losing my sanity ensued.  I joke around the office that I am earning wings. For some reason that helps me keep my patience, hold on to love, and take the higher road, when everything else is going to hell in a handbasket (whatever that is.)
 
Take your inspiration from anywhere you can.  YOU have my gratitude, love, and appreciation for all that you do, Winged Love Whisperer.
