It's not all rosy

I saw a t-shirt the other day at Target

I love this shirt! 
It is so true - the same goes for the bloggy world.

Well, most of the bloggy world.
I have some friends who have shared their heartaches with the world -
and in turn they have been reprimanded for sharing their reality.
Especially in the adoption community.

This just breaks me.
We need to be real.
Not every day is rosy!

Transitioning with a child who has never known family,
has never respected authority,
has never been loved unconditionally 
is NOT easy. 
It is a long road for everyone! 

ohhhh this face! 

When he is feeling safe and secure and trusting us as his family -

life is beautiful! 

And I wouldn't trade it for anything else! 

God can heal -
and in HIM I put my trust!

Love this-and I love realness, too. I was chatting with a friend recently about some hard stuff and she said, "well, at least your pictures look like life is wonderful!" Ha!

Sharon, I know what you mean! But sometimes, I have to look at the sweet photos to remember the real person inside that little body who doesn't fight and wants to be cuddled and held on too! It makes the hard times so much easier! There are some days that I have to post sweet photos of my kiddos as therapy for me. :)

So true! Thanks for sharing

That's EXACTLY what I said to my husband! I have always been so careful to not be a "complainer" on Facebook or our blog, but sometimes you just gotta tell it like it is. And since we're smack in the middle of the WAITING, it's hard. I think it's okay for others to be able to see the hard stuff, too..... cause they can probably relate!

I completely understand, Jodi! So many times I have to step back from the current situation and look at the bigger picture of who my kiddos are (and myself, too!). I think that posting sweet pics is a great form of therapy!
