What Justin and I wish for, for our children is that they are one day able to find peace with their past. That they learn forgiveness and can forgive those in their past who have caused them hurt or let them down. Our wish is that they can forgive us if we ever let them down in the future and that they always know we try our hardest to be the best possible parents to them, but that we make mistakes sometimes too. We wish that they will always know that they can turn to us when this world is cruel and they can forever trust us to be there when times get tough. We want them to understand just how special they are and that they can do and overcome anything in their lives that they want. We hope that they can always feel the love that we have for them. We wish that our children’s lives are filled with so much joy that it overrides the hurt in their lives. Our wish is that our children live long, happy and fulfilling lives surrounded by love.

For any child still in foster care, who may be longing for a forever family, our wish for you is that someone comes along in your lives and proves to you that you ARE worth it. Our wish for you is that someone can show you that not every adult will let you down, or break your heart.. break your spirit.  We wish that you can have what so many of us take for granted, and that it to have a home and a family to call your own. That one day, you can realize and truly believe that what happened in your past, was NOT your fault. We wish that you could feel loved and know or remember what it’s like to be truly cared for and protected. To know what it’s like to come first in someones life. We hope that you are given the change to be a child, or a teen without responsibilities that you shouldn’t have known for a while longer. We wish you safety, love, peace and happiness.
