We had been to many Finally home events by this time, so when asked to participate in the discussion up front, I was comfortable to jump right in. It just so happened that THIS time, the discussion centered on EXACTLY what I was struggling with. As I stood there, my life was being reenacted right in front of me.

We left that day with the knowledge that we weren’t alone in our struggles. Through a lot of work and patience, we were able to get our daughter the help she needed. We finalized her adoption three years ago. After so many years in the foster care system and a lot of pain and disappointment, we had the privilege of saying to her, “All of that is behind you. You’re finally home!”
