We said goodbye to Ladybug yesterday. It was very sad, and there may still be some waves of grief coming. However, we are doing much better than I expected. I knew God would equip us for this journey He asked us to take and we have so many friends and family praying for us. I’m not sure if we’re on the other side of the storm or if we’re in a big safe bubble but I am so thankful for God’s grace. It truly is sufficient for us and His power really is made perfect through our weakness.
You are a good person. I’m sorry for this loss and the grief that comes with it. What a difference you’ve made in the world, though, creating a safe haven for little Ladybug in her time of need. Bless you.
Saying goodbye is the hardest. I just foster orphan kittens for the humane society, and it’s hard enough returning them to the shelter so they can be put up for adoption. I can’t imagine saying goodbye to a human child like you have! Just remind yourself that you have given the gift of love, that your care is an investment in a child’s life, and that no matter what challenges the child may face in the future, you have helped to give her a stronger foundation.
Now there is room in your home, and your heart, to take in another child, one who may need your love and gentleness even more.
You’ll grow stronger as time goes on, but goodbyes will always be hard. If they were easy, then you didn’t really love, so be proud of yourself for being so generous with your heart.
You are amazing!!
I am praying for you and Jason. It’s so amazing how when we are weak, He is strong. I know the Lord will bring you through this difficult time.
“Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.”
Praying for you!
