You have to hope.
I had a long conversation with my daughter last night. It’s amazing and heartbreaking to view someone at the cusp of what we call the Adult World. To know that there is so much pain waiting is the heartbreaking part. To know there is so much living waiting to be taken, touched, and experienced is the exciting part. As a parent you have to trust that somehow they will make it through the maze and come out the others side with some truth… some beauty… some reason to believe.
