Love is Never Wasted

joy positive impact May 15, 2021

I’ve tried to write this post more times than I can count over the last week and I still can’t come up with the right words. So I’m just going to go with short, simple honesty.

Our son has left our home.

He is safe and cared for.

Our hearts are broken.

The last 5 years as his parents have been a journey in which we’ve learned much, loved with our whole hearts, and saw our family thrive and then perish.

A friend shared this quote with me, which is often attributed to Brene Brown:

“One day you will tell your story of how you overcame what you went through and it will be someone else’s survival guide.”

We are not ready to share our story, but maybe someday we will.

In the meantime, we accept all positive thoughts and prayers and well wishes as we grieve this loss. Thank you for sending them our way. Send some to our son as well.

I know I’ll be falling back to what’s always helped me in times of trial… meditation, exercise, prayer, journaling, spending time with my loved ones and sweet pets, and continuing to grow through it all.

I almost feel guilty for wanting to continue to grow and to share what I learn with you, but I’ve known for years now that’s my calling… to teach and coach and encourage and bring light and positivity to the table, especially in times of darkness.

It’s who I am. And it’s how I will heal.

Even in what has turned out to be the darkest time of my life so far, I’ll continue to reach for the light.

This is not what we expected to happen when we adopted, but we have no regrets. Love is never wasted.

Much love,

Mel
