As I have explained before, this site is not just about my struggle with endometriosis. Endometriosis is my largest battle at this time and so I share of those trails often. My inability to sleep has lead me to write and share. I do believe that all things happen for a reason, and that all events, good or bad will help to build our character into a strong being. For this I am thankful, that I am learning to trust, to trust God with my life, to trust others with my heart.
I have shared a little about how I have recently gotten back in touch with my biological family. I had just sent off a letter to my sister and was eagerly awaiting a reply. I got back a wonderful letter from my sister. It is amazing to be back in contact with her, it is like we never stopped writing. My sister and brother now have a facebook account, so now I can keep in touch with them daily. I do love what technology has allowed for us. The question about getting in touch with my biological mother was not clearly answered, though I think I may finally have made a choice. In time I may change that answer, but for now I think it will be the best thing for everyone involved.
In a few months I should have my printer/scanner all hooked up and I hope that I can add some pictures of my sister and her kids. I can also share the pictures of one of the few times we were actually with each other in person. Life is such a funny thing. I can look back at where I was just 10 years ago and I am amazed at how life has turned out. God sure has a strange way of teaching and growing us. I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes, a quote that makes so much sense once you are able to survive what life throws at you.
"Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward." Kierkegaard
