My new daughter was loving and accepting of the strange new woman in her life. God knew I needed her to accustom me to this new adventure in my life. Along with her biological parents, I have seen her through the teenage years, dating, driving, first love, broken heart, gradulation, first job, true love, marriage and her own motherhood! I was there when she steped into the baptimal waters and there when her dads walked her down the aisle. What joy it has been and will continue to be.
Through trial & error, dedicated teachers and specific summer activities with others like him, I have an incredible 17 year old. We are traversing the teenage years with as much grace and mercy and we can. I see a wonderful young man beginning to emerge.
