It’s been radio silence on our end for a while. We hope that you understand that our focus has needed to be on the many details of this process and on spending time with our changing family.
The obvious question is “how’s it going?” Well, that answer changes day by day and hour by hour of course, but overall, things are going really well. Have we had some significant challenges? Definitely! These are kids from a difficult past and the issues are complex and substantial. But our expectation is and was that these challenges would be there. We are choosing to count the wins instead of the challenges, and at this point, we feel we are making progress. We are learning to communicate better, we are building trust, and we are finding our rhythms.
Those who are at home helping out in a multitude of ways (with our house, at work, and more) have made it possible to simply focus on what we are doing here. Thank you to all of you – you know who you are!
Please pray for us as the next 24 hours are critical in the process. Pray especially for patience, understanding, and peace for all of us.
Brian and Ann
We are Brian, Ann, Kennedy, Rowyn, and Silas. In 2018 we added Claudia and Jefferson to our family! You can follow along through this blog as we share our hearts and our tales of the process.
