This December was a less than exciting one. I spent most days wanting them to go by faster, but they didn't. It's been DECEMBER FOR SO LONG! I was so glad to wake up this morning to January! That means only 21 more days until I get to hug Jaden and have a new beginning for our relationship! He seems to be doing great...atually enjoying it out there. The trail walkers all say he's the most positive kid out there, and he sticks pretty close to them to avoid the bad talk from the other young walkers. His letters have been great. He still struggles to show emotion and feelings, but he IS a teenage boy. But both him and each member of our family has been orking on changes in our heart towards each other. We've been listening to the anatomy of peace, and working in the family "walk of WE" workbooks each morning and we've already noticed so many great changes in each of us. Jaden's letters are something I"ll treasure forever. He's such an amazing kid and I hope this adventure teaches him that so that he can't deny his potential or our love for him. I really hope we can gain a firm trust in each other and create a transparent relationship...with each member of our family. I miss him like CRAZY...like I think about him night and day and pray so many times a day for him (especially in these 2 freezing cold days), but I know that the Lord has made this possible for the benefit of our famly's peace and love. I hope this is something Jaden will always think of as an opportunity and gift, because thats where our hearts were when we chose for him to go.
