Slow and steady wins the race.
I have to tell you, I think this is a great mantra for parents in general... Adoptive, Foster, Guardian, Kinship, AND even Biological!
It speaks to the need to stay NEUTRAL, no matter the test.
It reminds me to be CONSISTENT always.
It allows me the mindset to MEET my child where she/he is at.
It helps me appreciate that PROGRESS is slow.
It gives me the secret to KEEP ON, KEEPIN' ON!
It highlights that this is an IMPORTANT journey, a race to be won, a heart to be healed!
Make this YOUR mantra. Paste it to your wall or your forehead, put it on your shirt, place an ad in the paper to help others know too - whatever it takes!
It helps. It works. It is healing for everyone!
