I know I’ve mentioned that there are so many stories out there similar to that of ours and the three boys. Last night I came home to an email from someone whom I’ve known for a while and have had the greatest respect for. She is one of THE nicest people you’ll ever meet. She has no idea how much her email inspired and encouraged me. I shared it with Jessica, who’s experience growing up was very similar and she expressed the same sentiment as me.
I am posting the email with permission:
“Marc – I just wanted to write and tell you how touched I am that you and your wife took in three children to care for them. My parents were very young when I was born, and after their divorce, they were unwilling and unable to care for my sisters and I, who were 5, 3, and 1 at the time.
Talking to you this weekend, I couldn’t help but think what a difference it would have made in our lives if someone like you had been there for us. I know it has to be challenging beyond belief in ways that I can’t even begin to understand, but please know as someone who’s been on the other end of that situation, that what you’re doing will make such a positive impact on those little lives. My heart is full of gratitude and hope because of you. Thank you for making the world a better place.”
