When my friend asked me how it was going in 4 words or less I simply said “goods outweigh the hards”, so yes this journey is only a few days in and ITS SO HARD AND TOUGH. But PEOPLE ARE SO KIND. More hard to come i’m sure, but way more good no doubt!
It wasn’t perfect but it was just the beginning. At one point my group pulled over to the side of the shoulder to take a photo of the scenery, and as we oohed and awed, Savannah said, “it only gets more beautiful from here.” And I think she’s right in more way than one. Hopeful. Expectant. Ready to see what the rest holds.
In that room, I began to see the the relationships that will be formed between the girls and staff. I can see them sitting at the kitchen island with their house mom, making pancakes and experiencing for the first time what many might call normalcy. I can see them dancing in the living room with their new sisters, who fully understand what they’ve been through.
