Healing!

L to R: Leo, Daniel, Sydney, Madeline, Mom, Gabe, Dad, Chance

Last week Gabe brought this picture to me. I cried. It is the first one he has ever drawn of our family with him in it and we are all happy. He is turning eight this week. He draws alot of dragons, battle scenes, and faceless people. If you have a perfectly attached child you would not have been as shocked as I was to receive this picture. Notice the smiling faces and how he has positioned himself right between me and Jason and we are ALL holding hands. It is really beautiful. And the best part is - I can see it in his life, on his face, and I can feel it in his interactions. He is healing. Praise God!

It's funny because last night when he was here, I was thinking how happy he seemed and when I saw this picture my eyes went immediately to the fact that he had placed himself between you and Jason -- I know you sometimes doubt yourself but you and Jason are awesome parents and God's an awesomer parent. I wish I'd had a small piece of the wisdome and patience you two have.

Very funny. No goats. And for the record I do NOT have three legs.
