My Husband and I adopted 2 of our sweet grandbabies about 6 years ago. We have loved our time with them, but it has been a mixed bag for sure. I’ve had to let go of what I thought my life would look like at this stage in life. It was a process. Much like mourning, there was the death of a dream. Dreams to be pursuing our passions, and spending time together as a couple. At a time while we were changing diapers, and sleep deprived, our friends were traveling the world. We felt left behind. We had to learn to find joy in the moment and grow where we were planted.
While trying to make sense of my life, I decided to go back to school to learn how to deal with Trauma. There was trauma for the children, for my husband and I, and trauma of having an adult addict for a child. We were living in so much brokenness. I wanted to learn to create joy and beauty where there was pain and sadness. To heal my heart, and my grandchildren’s hearts as well, I became a Certified Health and Wellness Coach. Learning these techniques brought confidence, joy, and beauty back into my life.
