Do you remember…

4 years ago…

We had been home study approved.

We had a crib.

We had 2 failed adoptions.

We had a little girl who just wanted a sibling.

We had hope.


We have a beautiful, special little boy.

We have a hospital bed.

There will be no more children.

We have a little girl who has the most empathetic, sincere heart that I have ever seen on a child.

We have hope.

People ask, “how do you do it?”

—You just do.

They say, “If you knew what you know now, would you do it again?”

—In a heartbeat.

Not because I like being the mother to a child with multiple medical needs.

But because, he has changed me. He has changed those around us. There is more love. More empathy. More understanding. More education. I don’t want to be the person I was before he was my son.

Inspire hope.
