Since posting Big Feelings, I have begun to feel a little better. Not that I don’t still miss the boys, but sharing my sadness and heartbreak has led to some healing. It has also helped that friends have reached out to me. Many understand, at least a little of what I’ve been going thru. Hearing from others helps me feel more normal and that I’m not alone.
So I guess it’s official – Blog Therapy works!
Now I wonder if I’ll be able to let go of the feeling that we should still continue down the path of helping other children in foster care? Having a heart for those who are most vulnerable is so rewarding, but at time it really sucks! As my husband has reminded me many times, we can’t help them all. Still with millions in need, I can’t help but question at what point we must say “stop.” After all, if we hadn’t left Illinois, we would still have the boys. Thus, we wouldn’t have stopped.
And the blog therapy continues.
