Savanna and her friend and classmate Jenna, who is also Casey's (Dustin's girlfriend) cousin who lives in the same neighborhood we do. They were all smiles the whole time...no tears for anyone in the class. They are excited to move up to middle school.
As for us parents... not so sure.
These "lasts" are hard for me, I will admit. I have been wanting for a while now to have another child. Most of my friends think I'm crazy. My life coaching class seem to be the only ones who think it's a fantastic idea! Larry and I can't have more biological children unless a miracle happened, but I would love to adopt. I even have one all picked out to adopt, believe it or not. But, my husband is totally against it so it's not gonna happen, but I have dreamed...
Lisa tells me not to worry, "that's what grandkids are for..."
I don't know. That won't be the same. But I'll trust her word on it.
I will still take up the call to raise up countless spiritual children that God has entrusted to me.
It's a privilege that I never lose sight of...
