Q is for Quiet

So many times, the pressures of the world can get overwhelming. Having family as a safe refuge is a blessing beyond price. Whether it is the comfort of a spouse, encouragement from a parent, or watching a child asleep in his bed, quiet moments of together time with a loved one can make all the difference between despair and hope.

Lyrics from the Dixie Chicks song "Easy Silence" come to mind:
The easy silence that you make for me
It's okay when there's nothing more to say to me
And the peaceful quiet you create for me
And the way you keep the world at bay for me

This isn't really an adoption letter, but more a universal reality about family life that we hope everyone can experience. We are grateful to our families for the peaceful quiet ways they keep the world at bay for us.
