  1. Dear Kim,
    It is strong to share your experiences and feelings this way. I don’t respond to every blog you post often because I don’t find the words. I really hope that you can start the new year with the same drive, the same adoptive ability, the same resilience and the will to succeed in overcoming the setbacks you face as a family. Today my thoughts also go out to your husband Richard. Although I do not know him personally, I wish to give him a heart to support because he is also going through a difficult period and like you he will have experiences of anger, powerlessness and sadness. I hope you will continue to pay a lot of attention to this and that you will keep the openness you have in your blog post towards him so it doesn’t have to be just you and Bilbo’s struggle. In these times people wish each other all kinds of things: a new job, a better salary, a challenging project, a good year, ….. good health. With some of these things we can often be in the driving seat ourselves to get them realised, on other things too many variables have an impact that make that we have to be endowed with the right cards to get them realised. I wish Bilbo a lot of love and the strength to kill all the creatures in his body so he can grow up as a healthy boy. I wish his brother a lot of love so that he too can give a place to what is now experienced as a trauma in your life. To Richard and yourself I wish you a lot of strength, solidarity and resilience to maintain a beautiful family in 2019.
    Hope that the above does not come across as too mealy. I have not written this out with the intention of compassion for you. I wrote this because I admire the way in which you manage to share the setbacks in your life with the rest of the world without expecting anything in return. What you write down is for me a textbook example of Working Out Loud, the environment in which I got to know you.
    Warm regards,
    A Belgian friend.

      Thank you Marc – this means the world to me. 2018 was a great year and the time we spent together on a very personal journey has in many ways set me up to be strong and tackle this new path we’ve been sent on. I value your words very much and appreciate your guidance.
