My two littlest loves...looking away.
For our family, there are moments where it's easier to look away than to face the hardships that come with bringing a child into our family with such a sad, broken past. It's easier to pretend that the bows and the monograms and the sassy that she is somehow lessen the truth that is always lurking just below the surface.
So...sometimes...it's easier to look away.
Occasionally, we look back. We remember but we don't dwell there.
We are always moving forward...taking each day as it comes and relishing in the gift that adoption truly is.
And it really, truly is....
