Whew….

Today I had the privilege of meeting a couple who recently came home with 3 children from Haiti.  As I spoke with them and they poured their hearts out about how hard it has been, I totally saw how I looked in March 2003 when I went to see the International Adoption Physicians at UVA in the first month I was home with the boys.  The overwhelmed feeling…the feeling that you were such a failure cuz they wouldn’t even sit in a seat..the nervous laughs when they walked out the door…all overlying the worry…Am I good enough?  Will there ever be relief?

I hope I gave them some feeling of success because I remember what it was like to have kids like this…Image
