Signs of Hope

I wrote recently about newbies living in a place of hope and anxiety. I wrote that I was feeling the same things. It can feel like you are balancing in the middle of a teeter-totter.

Sometimes you can get off the teeter-totter. Sometimes the hope transforms to confidence. Sometimes anxiety becomes dispair. The balance tips and for a while you live in certainty. That certainty may bring sadness, relief, or joy.

But sometimes, even after years with a particular child, we find ourselves again balancing. Only after years, the stakes are higher. The hope and the anxiety both have grown. The teeter-totter which was once a few feet from the ground is now a mile high.

And sometimes a blogger writes a post from that place which simply must be shared.

Go. Read. Cry.
