Hanging on

8 years ago we brought home two kids we thought we could love through anything they needed and as long as we were determined we could fix anything that came up. Over the course of the next 4 years we added their two younger siblings to our home and had faith that doing the right thing would allow them to all be together and we could help them all grow up. In the last year I have come to realize
that no matter how much I want things to be different for them that there are things we can't change for them. We can provide them all the opportunities to make progress but nothing is guaranteed to work and all you can do is keep trying. Some times it is very hard to keep trying when it feels like nothing makes a difference and no one that can help takes what you are saying seriously. I worry for their future and wonder how things could be different for them if our concerns were addressed before they got escalated to the point of crisis. Thank you to My family and friends for being there for us, checking in to see how we all are doing and just being there to listen if nothing else. I know this journey would be even harder with out you.
