What do you do when you receive all you could have ever wanted in life? Yet, you learn that what you asked for came with a lot of hidden baggage, truths, and pain. The desire for children has always been a part of life. However, circumstances like finding the partner just never seemed to come into the picture. After years of waiting for the right person, the right time, or the right anything, your biological clock has finally stop ticking. Now what?
This is a story of a journey taken with all good intentions of making a mark in the life of a child. A journey which was an enigma and one which you could never be prepared for. No one can prep to have their heart broken in several different pieces or have their freedom suddenly compromised. How do you bleed when you have bled out in pursuit of becoming all you need to become for the sake of that which you asked for and at some point, even prayed for? This is a journey full of twists and turns, ups and downs, thrills and chills, victories, and defeat. It's a journey into the life of an adoptive parent and the child she adopted. The abuse that both parent and child suffered at the hands of the very organization who provided the "gift" God calls children. At the hands of powers seen and unseen, both parent and child endured untold hardships and challenges beyond human decency, morals, values, and just plain common sense. Only some of these horrific experiences are noted here on this journey. As the author of this book, I'd like to say, how profound is love! Love will make you do things you never thought you would do, say things you never thought you would say and take risks you never thought you would take. A mother's love goes even beyond boundaries seen and unseen; however, what would YOU do when love is not enough! How will you know?
