Bitter-sweet 16

In 2 weeks Cor will turn 16...

I guess I will just leave the above sentence. I've typed, deleted, typed, deleted over and over and over again......coming up with nothing. Not one thing that makes sense. Nothing that is worth blogging. That is worth sharing. Because, quite honestly, nothing about the entire situation makes sense!

I can't think of the right response, except to say that I was here, I read it, and I get it.

In the book of Job, there is one place where Job's friends come and he is so grief stricken that they don't even recognize him. They tear at their robes and then they sit on the ground with him, not saying a word, for 7 days and nights.

Sometimes I picture us, those of us who are in this together and know.. as sitting there together on the ground, not saying a word. We don't need to, because of the communion of our pain.

I guess I did have something to say.

Thank you Corey for saying what you did!! It means the world to me. Truly it does.

There is nothing to say.

There are no words to describe the complete emptiness...

I just found your blog thru Christine's. We disrupted the adoption of our 16 year old son, we also had a child taken from us after 4 years of living with us thru the foster care system. She was severe RAD, at the time we did not know anything about it. My heart grieves for her every single day. Every day passes and I wonder about both of them, how they are, what they are thinking and feeling, if they are ok, if they will forgive me for not being able to be their mommy.
I don't have any words of encouragement, just wanted you to know that you aren't alone. ~Jess
