Heartened

The whole kit & doodle!

“I have yet to find the shelf inside my soul all of this belongs on.”

Another adoptee I've met on the message board for the Chosen Babies website said this in a post today. Thank you, Mia, for your permission to quote you!
It struck me as an extremely accurate description of what has been happening to me. And obviously, it feels very good to have someone else voicing my own feelings. It's yet another acknowledgment that I am not alone in feeling this way.
On a conscious level, I know that I am not alone in my feelings. Every day, I come across posts where someone makes a statement which exactly mirrors what I've felt about various situations or issues. And yet, it's easy to slip into that space where I feel isolated or feel that no one can possibly understand.
I see how hard my husband tries to 'get it.' Since he knows he can't, he simply does the next best thing by supporting me in all ways.
I know just how lucky I am in that.
