This week the theme over at the adoption social for #WASO, is ‘Barriers’.
As a family we’ve faced many barriers, some of them huge, some not so much. Of all the barriers we’ve faced there is one that has been, and continues to be, the most difficult to face.
It isn’t the lack of post adoption support
It isn’t the friends that left because they didn’t understand
It isn’t the family that turned the other way when things got tough
It isn’t the mental health specialists that made and still make, us jump through hoops
It isn’t even the teachers that didn’t and don’t ‘get it’
It the barriers the girls have put up, the wall they’ve built around themselves as protection.
Brick by Brick, we’re slowly taking down those walls.
Maybe one day they’ll trust us!
