On January 21st, I met a fellow foster mom to get an anchor tattoo representing the hope this journey has required. The day before, our boy's parents relinquished their rights. Had they not made that decision, I really believe the same outcome would have been reached at the upcoming TPR trial- but we had an unpredictable judge so that was not guaranteed. Regardless, there was something deeper that came for me with them choosing to stop fighting and let the boys be adopted. I can't image the pain and sorrow that came with that decision. 

Hope did anchor my soul. Many times over.
