Saying Goodbye…Sweet & Soar
In the twelve years of protecting and caring for the orphaned and vulnerable children, saying goodbye has never been easy for me. The truth is that bonding comes with each child at their own time. Each of our children is received in diverse circumstances, scenarios and of course, they have their unique stories.
Each child must be cared for based on the child’s needs in terms of health, physical, emotional and yes…spiritual needs. From the moment of arrival, all hands must be on deck to restore, protect, care and love our beloved new member of our family. No time is wasted.
As we pour in our love and care we are reminded that adoption may come up at some point depending on the social investigation and the findings on this our newest member of our family!
Of recent, we have had to say goodbye to seven of our children in two months! It was a mixture of sadness, loss, and joy.
Letting go is not easy. I wouldn’t trade the experience over these twelve solid years for anything.
Give me a vulnerable baby to hold in my arms my day is made… Loved, Adored and protected!
