However, as I rocked Kate to sleep the other night (and admittedly held her long after that), I can finally understand why we had to go through it all. Now, here we are with our precious daughter and an amazing birth mother whom I absolutely love and cherish as well. It's such a mix of emotions, and I thankful I can finally look back and say, "Ohhhhh . . . I see. That kind of makes sense now!" What a long, tragic, sucky, miserable ride that ended in this beautiful, perfect place!
Here's an example of beautiful and perfect. :)
After the long, hard battle I can now see in her that it all makes sense. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
