Ms. Feverfew –
I am not yet able to write about my conversation with Bishop F. Perhaps in time I will be able to do so, but not this morning, not today. Suffice it to say, he told me this adoption thing was entirely my decision alone and that he had “absolutely no input whatsoever.”
Today, I am going to be gentle with myself. Today, I am going to focus on the children I have with me. We will go to the beach and play in the sugar-white sands. We will come home and swim in our pool. We will have dinner from the boys’ favorite BBQ place and then set up the leprechaun trap to see what we can catch. And when my children are tucked into bed, I will take a favorite book and read until I fall asleep.
And then I will wake up tomorrow morning and this day, this terrible anniversary of such a catastrophic loss in my life, will be gone.
