Coming Up for Air

I finally feel like I can come up for some air.

It has been one heck of a week. Kim, our 17 1/2 year old daughter (adopted in 2008) decided to run away from home last week. To make a long story short... Wasn't too hard to find her and we have since agreed to allow Kim to stay with her oldest sister and biological mother about 4 hours away from us. I have to believe that we served some purpose in her life and that this is the path that was chosen for all.

To find the bright side in this. The craft room that I gave up when Kim and her sisters first moved in 3 years ago is being reclaimed as my craft room again. It has fabulous closet space and great lighting. It will probably take me a month to move all my junk into it. Might just be good therapy.


  1. Wow. I'm...unsure of what to say? I'm sorry that you're having to go through all of this, but I'm glad that you've got some perspective on the situation now. I'm glad Kim is ok.

    Lots of hugs to you.

  2. Hang in there. Teenagers can be so difficult, but most of them become aware of the good influences and experiences in their lives. It just takes some a little longer.
