B is for broken hearts and spirits
A is for asking God to get us through this trial
N is for not letting this situation get between our marriage or family
K is for knowing we did our best, even if it wasn't enough
R is for (dare I say it?) relief
U is for understanding the court system better than we ever wanted to
P is for pride, severely wounded as it is
T is for tallying up the value of everything we own
C is for constant collection calls, whick will thankfully be stopping soon
Y is for yanking ourselves up by the shoestrings and limping towards the future
Today was the day. Signing all the paperwork. Feeling ambivalent, elated, and deeply ashamed all at once. One door slamming shut, another peeking open.
This life is quite the journey.
