I woke up about 6:50 and debated sleeping a while but figured i should be wide awake for my presentation this morning. I know that the expectation is energy and humor, but I don't feel like I have much of either at the moment.
My presentation today is about surviving parenthood.... and so far I've done that, so I guess I'm qualified. But who knows how the rest of the journey will go. ;-)
I got an instant message last night that further confirms the concern I've been having about the lack of support provided to us as adoptive parents. While parenting our children is very difficult, even on a good day, doing it without support makes it almost impossible.
I'm still struggling with the idea of recruiting families knowing the uphill battle they climb. but it's about the kids.
I keep telling myself that.
