Hope perches in the soul

When we began our journey of adopting, after the grueling process of fertility treatments, I had no idea how tough the adoption process would be.  Somewhere during that journey I came across a quote on a sugar packet and it gave me some encouragement.  I kept that empty sugar packet on my desk all through the process and reflected on it off and on.  It is kind of a corny quote and somewhat cheesy but I like it, it feels JUST personal enough to comfort the frustrated heart.

In clearing out my desk I could not bear throwing the packet away before capturing it here.  Thank you Emily Dickinson and thanks to sugar 🙂
