    Taylor, I’m so glad your piece just showed up as a ping back. Thank you for sharing so much vulnerability, and the hope that goes along with it.

      Hi Melanie! I meant what I wrote. Your blog relay inspired this post and I thank you for it. Sharing it felt good.
      Ping backs are weird aren’t they 🙂

    When our twins were born, one was stillborn and one had severe mental disabilities. I grieved the hope of their futures and ours, but the riches our son has brought will carry on through his sweet sisters and their children who don’t just look on the outside, but look to see what’s inside. Thank you for sharing this sweet and honest post.

      When we’re in the midst of a season of grief, we can’t see any of the good things God has waiting for us a little farther down the road. Thanks for stopping by.

    Wow Taylor, this gripped my heart. I think I held my breath because I’ve only knew about your nine year old. I am glad your son survived the streets and the PPD. I am glad you found your way out of fear, but sorry you had to experience loss of a loved one to get there. Thank you for sharing your story. That’s a beautiful and very appropriate scripture. I love to see a scripture with fresh eyes when a story is applied to its meaning.

      Thanks Kenya, fear is proof of a lack of faith and more often than not..that which we fear will come upon us.

      I can’t believe I haven’t written before about my “Mr Super Privacy, Don’t Put me all over the internet,” son.
