Yesterday’s events have tinged every thing I do, think and feel since.

It is filthy.

I have no words.

I want to throw my hands up and just yell “Forget it.  All of it.  It’s all stupid and beyond repair.  Humanity sucks.”

And, it kinda does.

But not always.

And today, I woke to a few sweet things.  I debated sharing anything at all today.  Simply because absolutely nothing can possibly suffice.

But there is still good.

You just have to look past the headlines.  Nearly impossible.  But it’s there.

26 Moments that Restored Our Faith in Humanity

(picture pulled from that story)

Look close…do you see a familiar face?

And do you see the title of that category…?


What does that mean?

Well, it means that a family has stepped forward and committed to the adoption process in hopes of bringing our girl home!!!!

I don’t know much else at this point.  I don’t know who the family is, or pretty much anything beyond the fact that there is a home that is preparing for her.

Let’s keep fundraising for whoever they may be…praying that the process is smooth…and that sweet Yana is kept safe in the interim.

Good exists.

It’s just that the evil scars our hearts so severely.

But we can’t let it.  We just can’t.

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.
