Shan wai you shan
Beyond this mountain, there is always another.
Millicent/DifferentDirt gave me this quote which became a mantra for me as we hiked Mt Hood in Oregon. Of course, for me, the message directly relates to the adoption process that has dominated my thoughts for a long, long time. It is a reminder that once we hit the peak, reach our goal and (finally) become a family of three - we will likely sit on that Life's Summit with a similar view as above. One that is hazy, perilous, demanding...and extraordinarily beautiful.
