Sometimes all we can see around us are dark clouds and difficult circumstances. It leaves us defeated. Is there any way to find hope? As I look back over the course of the past 14 years, we’ve walked through more hopeless seasons than we have peaceful ones. It’s sorta the nature of parenting. It’s especially the nature of foster, adoptive, and special needs parenting. I yawn one of those deep yawns just thinking about it. There have been so many moments where all seemed hopeless, lost, and never-ending.
