Saturated

Our whole life is absorbed with living, waking, waiting,

Listening, anticipating, second guessing, planning,

Plotting, back peddling, emailing, texting,

Meetings, organising, posting, signing,

Explaining, explaining again, explaining  more,

 

Controlling our breathing….

 

Catching the next curve ball, dodging the grenades,

Building the scaffolding, putting out the touch-paper,

Fighting the fire, damping the flames,

It’s all never-ending, it is constant,

It’s unrelenting, it’s the runaway train.

 

 

We are a saturated cloth, unable to soak up any more.

We are not waving at you in the water, we are just trying to stay afloat.

 

Dedicated to all those who are trying their best with their children.

Please have a look at other adoption related blogs here.

  1. Thank you. I love this, and am going to share it with everyone in my life who doesn’t understand (ie most of them). As an unintentionally single adopter of 3, this is how I feel ALL the time.You are so talented and poetic, as well as being an amazing dad. Thank you x
