the past 5 days have been mentally exhausting. i do not have the strength to put into words all the details, nor do i want to. but i will only post that the Lord is my Rock and he is at work. we have not reached the other side yet, but even in the midst, I see everyday gifts that God is pouring into our lives...
...a strong of sense of unity with mark
...a hug from C as he tells me thanks for helping him
...watching painful but productive lessons develop character in an emerging young man
...pride welling up in me as i consider the incredible courage and self-control C has shown during all of this
