Struggling and Carrots

Years ago when I started this blog it was to focus on adoption and waiting for our son to come home.  Now as  I blog I walk that tight rope of knowing what to keep within our walls and what to tell.  For some time now life has been a little rough around the edges here.  A time as has come to admit to myself that I need help and the tools I have for parenting are not always enough.

I have come to learn that sometimes kids hurt in ways that we can't understand, but in order to give them wings to eventually fly we have to get tools to make that happen.  In ways it feels like failing as a parent to ask for help and yet knowing that in the long run we will all be better off.

One of the greatest places of solace that I have found with Andy since he came home is out in the garden. He, like me, loves to get his hands in the dirt and grown plants.  Yesterday we dug out carrots and boy did we find many treasures. 

So just like the carrots we dug we will continue to dig deeper into this little boy. For he is one of my greatest treasures in life.
