I've been reading the blog of a mom with four girls adopted from backgrounds with trauma. I love reading her blog, because instead of the miserable stories, her stories are full of hope, full of growth and healing.
I read this post of hers tonight: Adopting An Older Child. It describes what an older child might have experienced before she was adopted. It describes grief.
It describes Abi.
I'm so thankful for other moms who have walked this road before I did, and who cheer me on and tell me, "It's going to be okay!"
It really is! :)
