September was a month of fog. There were some days filled with a heightened sense of joy and excitement and other days filled with indescribable grief and despair. A friend died. I started teaching school part-time. Charlie was born. Ben travelled. I picked up full time work. Ben’s job description changed. His working hours were lowered to 20/week. Extended family issues.
We are working through and praying through a lot. There will be some big decisions for us in the months to come. My teaching contract is a year, but after that…Do we stay with Ben’s 20 hours or do we go? Will other doors open up? Our provincial adoption home study is now on hold because our life seems to be on hold.
Thank you for your patience. I will write about Charlie’s birth very soon. Thank you for your prayers. We need them. God has helped us work through a lot of emotions, and we believe that He will continue to be faithful as we try to see through the fog.
