Over ten years ago, his mother hired me to teach 7th grade English. It’s fascinating to see how she and I are different and how we’ve stayed the same. Time has brought much change. Ten years ago seems in some ways another lifetime to me. Life’s trajectory is so beautiful when we pause to see the grand scheme. Four weeks ago, she and her husband adopted this guy. The Gladney Center called on Monday. He came home on Friday. Four days to prepare – can you image?! What a blessing he is.
