Milkshake Conversation

“When you think about how things were in the orphanage, do you feel peaceful or does it still hurt?”

“Most of the time I feel peaceful, but it still hurts a little.”

“Mmmmm.  Yeah, I guess it does.  What do you think would help make it better?”

“I don’t know… (Pause to slurp the last of her chocolate milkshake from the end of the straw.)  I think I would like more time with you.”

    Oh sweet, sweet healing in progress. How precious that the hurt is not as prominent and what wonderful answered prayer that this child of yours is so attached to her manmi.
